Barbara Moyer Spicuzzo

To Marilyn, Karen and Erma's family .. sending you my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother, Erma. I had the pleasure of knowing her while she was at Hearthstone, Maidencreek where she sat at the same table as my mother, Margaret "Maggie" Moyer. What a very caring, lovely woman. I surely enjoyed her and seeing her wear all her dresses that she made. Wishing you peace and comfort in the wonderful memories you shared with her and sending my deepest sympathy at this difficult, sad time. Barbara (Moyer) Spicuzzo, Maggie's daughter.
