I know this will sound bizarre but I remember going to the Sheriff’s house on Halloween. They always gave us popcorn balls with raisins and black walnuts. I am 74 and still remember them. My condolences to the family.

My thought and prayers are with all of you. I wish I could have been at the service but I had things I had to do up here. Love you all, The Barr’s
I am very sad to learn of your mother’s passing. I remember her being such a kind and loving lady. My grandparents (Potvins)lived next door to your parents for many years and she was always very kind to me when I went to visit them. Please accept my condolences and remember that she is now in Paradise with our Lord and reunited with her True Love, Herb.
