Dear Noel and Mary,

   So sorry to hear about March. Over the years we grew to know and love her from my brother Bob. Our girls used to love to come down to the farm and be with the horses. We always enjoyed her company at either Bob's house or ours in Montgomery Co. Best to both of you and your families. Prayers have already gone out for her when we heard of her passing.

Ken and Jan Slack
