Dear Ellie and family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was a very sweet lady when I worked at Buckingham. She always had a smile on her face every time I took her her breakfast and made sure her coffee was extra hot. She was a wonderful friend to talk to when something was wrong. She will be missed by all the lives she touched.

Aunt Janet as we called her, was my mom's best friend and maid of honor at her wedding. We would see Aunt Janet and Uncle Charlie when they came to our house for "Supper Club" - getting together monthly with their closest friends, all of whom we called aunt and uncle. Aunt Janet always had a big smile and just eminated warmth and love - a very special person. So glad she was part of my life.

I was saddened hear of the passing of Mrs. Kusche. I did several root canals for her and she was a great patient and friend. I treated Mr. Kusche initially and realized that they were a couple that was meant to be, with the love that they showed one another. My prayers will be with you. Mrs.Kusche spoke of her kids and grandkids all the time and she was so proud of all of you.
