  • I am sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed the brief converstions with Lila, the kind teenaged boys have with their friends’ mom. Though I just recently re-connected with Doug, my connection with the family goes back 40 years. The memory I will share is: one winter (I think it was 1973), during a blizzard, the whole “neighborhood” came together to keep the road open in cas Lila had to get to the hospital. Bety Hibbert kept the coffee and donuts coming and all the men took turns in the cold to bust the snow drifts. Finally, when mother nature proved she would win, Dean Lahr covinced Gary to let him pull Gary’s Charger though the snow to the highway and take Lila into town. I have always been grateful that we lived among people who cared for each other that way. May God grant the family peace.

  • Roxanna, Doug & families:

    We will always remember the good times.
