For 17 years we were neighbors of Connie And Wally and their family. Paula helped our kids learn how to care for our horses and Mark plowed our drive. They are a great family and great friends. Our kids, Dean and Julie, join us in sending our best wishes and prayers to the family. Sue and Bob Brackenridge
