Robin, Our sincere sympathy at this time of loss for your and your family.
You will be in our thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
I knew you said your grandparents were in Greenmount, but I guess I never asked their names.
I knew your father a little when I was a child, but I knew your Poore Grandparents very well. We lived behind them on Jefferson Street. Later I worked at Brown Drug with your grandfather. My sister still lives two houses west of the Poore home on Madison Street.
Wishing you much comfort in the days ahead.
It is a very small world.

Gordon/Robin : Please accept my condolences and know you are in my thoughts and prayers . Your father was a special friend and we would meet,talk everytime I came back into town. We use to be neighbors over on 10th...I was on the corner and he lived on the alley. He was truly a great man. Thank you for sharing him with me. God bless.
