To Lester, Fern, Ruth,Carol and the Schartel/Bower family .. I'm sending my deepest sympathy to you on the passing of Grace, your sister, mother, etc. What a lovely women she was. My mother, Maggie (Schappell, Moyer) whose mother, Edna, was your mother's sister, and I had gone to visit her quite a few years ago at the home in Orwigsburg prior to my mother's passing and we had a lovely afternoon talking about years ago and family, always subjects dear to our hearts. I'm very sorry for your loss and hope fond memories of her will bring you comfort and peace. I'm hoping you remember me like I remember you all, cousin's of my mother's. Although we don't get to see each other hardly every, surely family ties still bond us together in my heart. Many blessings and deepest sympathy ..Barbara (Moyer) Spicuzzo, Milltown, NJ - Maggie's daughter.
