To my former Lafayette neighbors. I just wanted to say that your mom was a very sweet lady and good friend to my mom, Rachel Yantis. She would bring us goodies from your beautiful garden and often took me to your grandparents farm when she and Janie visited. You all are lucky to have had her for so long.
Fondly–Karan Yantis
