  1. Wonderful site. A lot of useful info here. I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks for your sweat!

  2. My sincere sympathies to the family. John and Vera were friends of my parents, Bob and Sue Curry. I was so touched and appreciative that John and Vera traveled all the way to Lakewood for my mother’s funeral visitation back in 2006.
