Our Deepest Sympathy

Can still remember what great times we had on Cramer Rd when we were kids. My Dad bought the Apple Orchard on Croft Hill Rd because Spike had a pony at the Barn on Lauer Rd and Mr. Croft was selling the property. Dutch Uncle Spike and Aunt Tommy were the nicest family friends. Our prayers to Suzanne and her family. Peace be with you all.
