  1. Kathryn, I’m deeply sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. Please know that she is in a good place smiling down on you. Take care.

  2. Bill, Kathy and Bev, I was so saddened to learn of your mother’s passing. She was a wonderful lady. My many years of knowing her was through the school.

    As an employee she was loyal, dependable, honest and true. She carried out her responsibiliy and without hesatation.I know that she always enjoyed attending our retired employees reunion each October. She was remembered in a silent prayer on October 7th, 2010, as she was under going sugery that day. She will certainly be missed.

  3. To the Miller family, Eloise and I became friends in 1990 when I became a school bus driver for Williamsville Schools. She was a mentor who coached me over many cups of coffee after we finished our morning run. Several of us busdrivers would go to the local restaurant and share stories. I learned a lot listening to how she handled various situations. In 1995 when I went out over-the-road as a truck driver, Eloise stayed in touch with me over the next 12 years. She would call me and ask, “Where are you?”. We would then go on to talk of places she and Bill had been in their younger days… out west in a pick-up truck with a camper top on it 🙂 When I was home we took numerous trips to Wal-mart… and always out to eat! The Parkway Cafe and Baker’s Square won’t be the same without her. I will miss your mom… and grandma.

  4. To the Miller family,

    My sympathy to you in the loss of your mother.

  5. I was very sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. You have my sincere sympathy.
