I remember Mrs. Hurst when I was a child & my parents did business with Wachovia on Ninth Street. Later in my life, I got to work with her @ Strawbridge Studios. She always had a pleasant smile for everyone. I thought of her often. I now your loss is great, but I also know she is happy to be in heaven with your dad. May God surround you with his love as you face the days ahead. With my deepest sympathy. Sincerely,
Janet Davis-Snipes
