To the Family of Mary Miner,

My deepest sympathy to all of you. Mary cleaned my house(North Lane) years ago and she was a lovely, caring person who became my friend and then introduced me to her daughter Nancy who also became a dear friend to me and my family.

My thoughts are with you.

Sincerely, Carol Godlewski
