Dear Ducky’s Family,

I am so sorry about your loss.Ducky was a happy person.I will never forget the times she would go out to smoke at Conestoga View on the patio.She would come out pushing her wheel chair just a dancing around as she was walking out to the patio.She would make you smile and laugh and just have a good time.She is resting now and she isn’t suffering anymore.I’m going to really miss her.

I’m not sure anyone will remember me, but I lived at 153 East Vine St. as a child. My maiden name was Janice Newell Wertz, and I lived with my grandparents, Allie & Edna Newell. I was so sorry, to hear of "Ducky’s passing. I remember playing with Linda & Robbie at their home on East Vine.
 I remember Ducky as a beautiful lady with blond hair. She was always smiling and always seemed so happy. Even though it’s been 50 years since I,ve seen her I will always remember the fun I had playing as a child at the Graver home.

With deepest sympathy,
Janice Wertz (Landis)
