Condolence from Pat Hollingsworth on February 11th, 2022 1:04 pm

Dear Gail, Richard, Isaiah, Naomi, and Pat,
Please know how very sorry I am for your loss. My heart aches for all of you with profound sadness. Beth was such a beautiful little girl with a sweet, gentle nature, shy till she got to know you, but then she would give you that smile. I can hear our girls laughing in the background while we chatted in the kitchen over a cup of coffee.
I can see our yards touching with no fence to impede our little children running to play with one another It was such fun to have good neighbors who enjoyed each other’s company-kids and grownups alike. I remember those days so clearly as well as my grandson, Cort, and your grandson Isaiah playing together as young boys exploring the woods near your home. Hold on to those memories as do I.
It is with much love that I offer my deepest sympathy to you all.
Pat Hollingsworth
