Condolences to family of Sis -
I will surely miss her as she was one of my most faithful Red Hat Ladies and can't remember her ever missing a monthly meeting and lunch. She was a delight from when she moved to Apple Street to the end. We were just together at The Carriage House three weeks before she passed. We all miss her.

Dear Kathy, Burhead, Susan and Family - Sis will always hold a special place in our hearts - from riding our horses down to the hotel for a quick visit; no filter in her comments about most anything, her laughter and friendship, especially to my parents. All the best to you during this time. Love, Diane and Family
