On behalf of John Kreider and the Kreider family, we send condolences to Luke and the family.  So many fond memories of our families visiting together when we were young.  Great memories of Luke and my husband Roy flying airplanes on the goat path.  I enjoyed seeing Luke and Mary at Landis Homes when I popped in to visit my Dad.  I will miss seeing Mary’s smile and her warm greetings.  Blessings to all of you.

We send our condolences to you in the loss of your wife and mother.  I remember her for her smile.  Her body may be taken, but not the memories she left with you.  They will live on in your hearts.
