Condolence & Memory Journal

I want to extend my sympathy to Connie's family . So glad i stopped to see her last summer. It had been sometime since I had seen her. I admired her upbeat attitude about life. She was left a widow at a young age. Marcia, I was glad to meet you for a short visit last summer. I noticed in her obituary he enjoyed growing flowers. That seems to be in the Hirschy genes as that is one of my hobbies. It is difficult to part with our loved ones but we can keep memories of them our hearts. May God give each of you comfort.

With sympathy,
Cousin Margaret Hirschy Wilkins

Tom and family -- I have fond memories of your mom, dating to the years you and I were counsellors at Epworth Heights. She was a dear lady. Thoughts and prayers to the Zollars family as you celebrate a life well-lived.

Our sincerest sympathy to the Zollars family. Tom and I went from kindergarden through high school together. 1301 Archer Avenue was like a second home. I admire Mrs Zollars for her strength raising such a wonderful family.
