Condolences to the Family

We are deeply saddened by the loss of your mother and grandmother. Emma was a very special lady, she would always give my mother ‘s dog Rocky, a special treat every time we walked by her house. She saved soup bones for Rocky and made it part of her routine every day.  She was a wonderful person to talk to too. She was deeply saddened by the passing of Rocky.  She will be remembered for her kindness.. Mr. & Mrs. Barr  (Harry and Catherine Hess ‘s daughter.)

Donna and family,  
I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your mother and grandmother. I would run into her at times in Lititz at the grocery store and she always told me how she remembered my dad grilling hot dogs for her when we (Donna and me) were little and lived on Lambeth. She still looked exactly like she did back then. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time.
