Condolences to the Family

October 11, 2020

My deapest sympathy to all the Kirchner family.  My late mother, Alice M. Money, and Aunt Ruthie were best friends since childhood living one street apart growing up in Lancaster.  Some of my fondest memories of Aunt Ruthie and Uncle Bill were sitting at their kitchen table playing cards.  Last year Aunt Ruthie gave me a photo of her and my mom when they were young women which is on my home office desk.  Aunt Ruthie, you are missed.  I know you and my mom are together touring around Heaven.  Love you.
Therese (“Terry”) L. Money
