I have just watched the video memorial to Winnie and was so glad that you put it on her obituary. She was such a lovely person and I am sad to read about her death. Selling them their house on Sawmill over 30 years ago was one of my best memories from my years in real estate. My prayers are with the family.

So very sorry to read about Mrs. Hix's passing. Mom was trying to reach her by phone last week. Mom has shared many fond memories of her and your family with me. I've never met a kinder soul.
