Joyce White Ralston

Peg, Guy, and Charlie,

My deepest sympathy upon the death of your mother.

I have fond memories of her when I was a child "growing up" on Second Street in Freeport along with you and others in an active neighborhood with lots of active kids.

She was always warm and welcoming to all of us.

I enjoyed listening to her playing the piano, too.

Hers was a life well lived. Be proud and happy.

May she rest in Peace. God bless you all.

To Winifreds family

My sympathies go out to all of you. I have been calling Winifred for many years through the We Care Program at Indian River sheriffs office. We have had many great chats about many things but she especially liked to tell me about her family .and the many interesting jobs she had over the years. You were very special to her as I am sure you know. I will miss talking to her as I know the other 6 callers will also.

Sincerely, Donna Dobie

Condolences to the Conti family from Girl Scout Brownie Troop 50609 in Vero Beach. Our troop volunteered at the Horizon Bay Retirement home over the past year and my daughter greatly enjoyed her time spent with Wini. She was one of the only people my daughter would let win at a game of Connect 4 and be happy about it, they had a wonderful time together and she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you through these tough times.
