  • Hello Jeff and Jenny and family,

    I was saddened to hear of the death of your mom. She and I had been friends ever since we worked at the old Galion Printing Company on Millsboro Road. We both retired within a month of each other. Enjoyed speaking to her on the telephone at least once a month for the past 20 years.

    May she rest in peace.

    May God be with all of you during this most difficult time.

  • Hello Jenny, Jeff, & families,
