Our deepest condolences to all of June`s family! She is the last icon of our parents generation to be called home, my memories of June go all the way back to my childhood days walking in the creek near their house to enjoying her spetacular kolaches , She was always so loving and giving of herself! I will never forget her caring and support to our family when my parents were ill! She even remembered how I loved rhubarb pie and made certain I had her homemade dream before I had to go back to Virginia! She is going to be greatly missed! Rest in the peace of our Lord, Sue & David Meloy
