Memories Timeline


  1. May she rest in peace, she lived a full and at times difficult life, she had amazing strength to cope.-  I knew Renny from fitness classes for many years, she would often describe her early life post-war in Germany and how she met her husband.-  At Christ

  2. I am saddened by the loss of my friend Mrs. Kastner.-  I always enjoyed going to see her ,sometimes I would get to bring my daughters along to visit with her while I was working around the house. I surely will miss her.
