Condolence from Jerry & Bonnie Carper, Jenny Long, Dianna Rice on February 21st, 2008 12:00 am

Joan, Renee, Tommy, & Ernie,
Life passes us all by so quickly. It seems like just the other day all we kids were riding the bus with Mae May yelling like crazy. The times Renee and I drove to Mars Hill to see Dianna were memorable, singing with the windows down. I hope this finds you all well and making wonderful memories with your own families.
We are sorry for your loss…
Much love and fondness,
Jenny Carper Long
