  1. The Roots and the Ackers had a couple of generations of history. From next door neighbors
    where they swapped babysitting services and you Mom made Galettes for Sat. coffee to
    working in PTA , playing cards and sharing triumphs and sorrows. They always made me
    feel confident when I babysat you children…and then we grew up and OUR children went
    to school and sports together… We are sad to see Teddy go but Mom, Dad and Vicki will
    be there to welcome him home…Please know that the Acker’s and the Place’s are keeping
    you in their prayers…Love, Suzie Acker Place

  2. To the Roots/Myers’/Henries/Shants/Levins families: My love to all of you…so sorry to hear about “Grandpa Root” ‘s passing, wish i could be there with you to share my condolences in person.
