My condolences to the family. I cared for both Dick and Florence when they lived at Harrison House. I had many a talk with both Dick and Florence while sitting outside under the pergola. They both were very special people.

Dear Saylor Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.  I have fond memories of being in the Saylor home, especially as it served as my bus stop in high school.  Hope to connect with Robbie sometime since we graduated together at Octorara. 

Sincerely in Christ,

Steven Trommler
