Condolence & Memory Journal

Reading this with much sadness. I volunteered at Cornwall Manor teaching line dancing for many years and she was one of my "dancing grannies". Such fond memories of those Saturday mornings and our annual visit each Christmas to see Grace.

Mrs. Tom was my 3rd grade teacher at North Annville. She was so nice to her students. I remember what she let us eat sugar cane. She always would say "hi"when we rode bike to the pool. She never forgot her students name. So sorry for your loss.
