To the Mixer Family

Even though many miles now separate us, memories will always keep us close. When we were neighbors, friends, and classmates in London Mills, those were special times I will always remember. Now all of the parents who lived on Route 116 are now neighbors once again, in Heaven. May you feel God's presence during this time and may He richly Bless you and keep you.

Roger, I feel this is the right place to send my condolences, sad as I am to do so. My mother lived to 93 and a half, so I know we both enjoyed their long and happy lives. She is with me still every day; it must be a mother's job and legacy. I hope distance and weather didn't limit your visits. Again, my deepest sympathy...........

Ramona
