You all, most likely, do not remember me. I was one of June’s many chemists whom she counseled, loved, and, at times, ordered. 🙂 The last time I was back in Lancaster (2 years ago) I stopped in to see June and had a wonderful visit. June was FAR more than a secretary and co-worker. She loved us and it showed. She listened to our stories and gave us much wise counsel; but it was the constant listening ear that meant so much to me. I still carry a little card in my wallet she gave me over 30 years ago. It is entitled "A Cross In My Pocket". What June leaves behind for all of us cannot ever be taken from us. But I am afraid, for a long time, we will all still miss her.
My thoughts and prayers will be with you all. Through June, your family meant a great deal to me (and I loved picking on June with Dan).

Dear Family, What a wonderful family you are. I knew many of you especially Peggy & Ann. June was a lovely person, always kind & just plain nice. I will remember her in my prayers. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
