    Salena was a fellow classmate of our CLHS CLASS OF ’57. I lived on a farm out of Hartstown going toward Linesville. I’m so sad to hear of her passing. I will always remember her as having a smile. My sincere condolences to her family.

Mrs.Sayles was always so nice to me when I was at their house. She will be missed by many people. I was also very sorry to find that Debbie had passed,too. My sincere condolences go out to all of you at this difficult time.
