    My thought and prayers are with Mrs. Kecks family. I met her while doing visits with my therapy dog, Codie at The Heritage. I always enjoyed visiting with her and she always came to the Christmas programs and Easter programs that we did with the Codie and Friends group. She always enjoyed seeing all the children that would come and sing songs. We were all blessed to get to know her. Love and prayers to all her family, Cheryl Smith, and Codie and all the children that met her also.

    Judy, I am sorry I did not know about your Mother’s passing till just recently. She was such a lovely person that I remember well from our “youthful” years. My mother always enjoyed being friends with her and was very saddened to hear of her passing. Our thoughts are with you and all the family.
