 A lady you won't forget, not ONLY as a bus driver but a friend.  Always had something to say weather you agree with her or not.  Will be missed in the community of Holmesville, sorry we can not be there for calling hours, in North Carolina at our son place.

 Sorry to here of your Mom’s passing. I found the info when I was looking to contact her since we are coming down that way this summer. My Mom was a Frey and they maintained contact throughout their life. She continued to call to wish Dad a happy birthday. He passed March last year.

I remember a family trip where we visited the family when I was 11. I remembered playing baseball, trying archery and playing kick the can in the field. I would love to connect with some family when we come through.

We will be in Columbus Oh between July 1 and 6. My  youngest daughter is going to a basketball camp there. She’ll be 16.
