Dave and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Stubb's passing.
Passing on Nurse's day just seemed so suiting and special for her. The years have flown by so quickly.
Love and blessings to you and all your family.

Dear Allen Family
I have such warm memories of Carolyn from the many days I spent at Delaware school. She was always so caring and patient to all the children. I have thought of her often over the years and hope that her retirement days where everything she wished for. Carolyn spoke so proudly of her hubby Dave, her children and grandchildren who I’m sure adored her. May the special memories you shared with her bring you peace, comfort and love at this very difficult time.
With sincere sympathy to all...Diane Detor
