So sorry to read of Midge’s passing. She is now at peace and will no longer have to suffer. She is in a much better place with her loved ones. I had planned to visit here this evening but at least I hope she got my little note. When I think I Midge I think of all the beautiful flowere she and Stan grew when they were in Greenfield.

So sorry to hear of Midge’s passing. We always enjoyed talking to she and Stan….they were such good neighbours to Paul’s parents in Greenfield when they lived there.
My sincere condolences to Midge’s family. She was such a wonderful and very likeable person. She will be sadly missed!
So sorry to hear of Ruth’s passing. I got to know her and Stanley quite well when I worked to Superstore in Liverpool. Always a quick smile and hug from both of them. You both are dearly missed by me. I loved Stanley’s tomatoes which I enjoyed in the summer and I will sorely miss the hugs from Ruth. I know you are together again and I will miss you. God has you in his hands, I have you in my heart.
