  1. I believe I met both you ladies at the eye-doctors last year…IF you are the same ladies, I have to say, both of you are wonderful. I remember the wonderful stories you told about your childhoods in Oswego County. I guess it was a long wait! SO sorry to hear of your loss. Twins are special, and that connection cannot be broken, even when one passes through the veil! God bless you in this time of grief! I worked with your sister-in-law, Edie (I believe) long ago in the County. IF you aren’t these people, well, your loss still touched me enough to write.


  2. She was a wonderful lady so much fun to be around.I will always remember the great times I had with her.Rest in peace
