My condolences for your Mother and Wife. I remember you getting plums on the farm on Benwood Hill many years ago. After 41 years, I’ve moved back so hopefully I’ll see you again. Again, my condolences. Dan Fisher

I am so sad for her passing. On Thursday as I was driving out of the ally she was sitting on the porch and we waved to each other. I loved her very much and loved to sit under the grapes and talk to her and Eugene. Loved all the Magnones! Will miss her very much!!
