    Mary Lou, Bob, John, Nancy & Jim,
    What a wonderful “Buckeye” family! Our prayers are with you.

    Your Mom and Dad were like second parents to me in those early formative years of growing up in the Heart of the Buckeye. It seems like all of my pre-teen memories revolve around doing things with the Blairs. Your parent’s home was always open and Mom always hosted great gatherings and Holiday get-togethers. She was the protective guide for crossing M-35 and was always in the yard as we walked the few blocks back and forth to the Buckeye School. She always had a smile. I remember that she never even scared us when she scolded us for raiding the neighbor’s garden or when she caught us “Cooning” her rubarb patch. She was and is an angel.

    I can only smile thinking that Marian, Pit, Hank and Mary are together looking down on us all. God love them.

    We miss being with you at this time as we are in Seattle where we spend much of the year with our children and grandchild. We are with you however, in prayer and good memories.

    To the Blair Family.

    My deepest condolences to all of you. You mom was a saint. I will never forget growing up in the Buckeye. She would always supply the salt and butter for our potato cook outs in your backyard.

    She will be missed by many. God Bless you all
