Dear Peden Family, My husband, Eldon Collier, and his sister-in-law, Mary Ellen Collier, widow of his brother Larry, were there last night. They didn't see any familiar faces but spoke with Carol. Eldon and Larry used to run around with Phil and Don and also Don's ex-wife Ann. Eldon and Mary Ellen have lost touch with Ann. She came to an Andrew's Academy reunion a few years ago and was exchanging Christmas cards with Mary Ellen until a couple years ago. Would you be able to give us any information regarding her? You can contact us through my email, sueatme@comcast.net. We are sorry for your loss and we all know that going down in that manner is such a sad experience. May God bless you as you grieve and carry on. Sue Collier
