Duane, when I read your mom’s obituary it brought back lots of memories for me. I along with my parents, six sisters and two brothers lived at 630 Main Street next to Turk and Mrs. Freeman. Oh and there were two dogs whowere a part of the Freeman family! My father Jack Randall was the postmaster in Liverpool during the years when Hoodie worked there. It was a special place back when Hoodie, Robert Fader, John Anthony, Audurey Dauphinee etc worked as staff in the post office. Also remember when Hoodie got married and I must say I never knew your father’s name; he was always Ollie to us. She was a very dear person when I knew her and I know you are so sad to lose her. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
Duane & Family,
I am sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. She was a really great lady. I had not been keeping in touch with her very much since your Dad passed away. I had popped in a few times to visit and do the odd repair but I was not aware that she moved. I will try to make it to the service on Saturday. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Darrell and Anne Conrad
Duane, Elsie and family – Just want you to know that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
