Robert & family – So sorry to hear about Mildred. Wow! 100 yrs. old. What a long life. So sorry none of the Webb’s could make it to the funeral home but Beth just read it in the paper last night (Tues)which didn’t leave any time for planning time off from work etc. Thinking about all of you during this time. Robert, I hope you’re doing well…it’s been 5 1/2 years since we last saw you. Take care.
So sorry to hear that Aunt Mildred passed away.
We will be unable to attend the funeral as we are spending our winter in North Fort Myers, Florida. Aunt Mildred was my mother’s (Mary) sister. Always enjoyed the Holycross family get togethers. Our sympathy, Phyllis (Miller) Apple
