Dear Don and family,
It hurts, and will hurt for a long time. I will miss my earlier swimming pool friend. I will miss her caring for the Little Library in the Woods. I will miss our conversations about the Roth family.
With caring for you all!

Don and family,
We remember you and commit you into God’s care during these days as you remember, grieve and reflect on the life of Priscilla.  She was special in many ways.  Kate and I were grateful for the strong interest that both you and Priscilla took in Sheila when she was younger.  She now grieves with you.
While we have not had an opportunity to interact with you and Priscilla, please know that we continue to have the greatest respect for you.  Your integrity continues to inspire some of us.
