Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time. We have such great memories of the whole Summerville family. Jill was my daughter's very first friend when we moved to Dana. Susan was Darrylene's first baby sitter. During the summer months the whole neighborhood kids played their summers away. Either on their bikes, swimming or Kool-Aid stands. We will always have these great memories. Jill rode a scooter because Jeanne said she wasn't strong enough to ride a bike. They were a hand full playing in the alley. I treasure all of you and the memories left behind.

Charlie - So terribly sorry for your loss. May God's hands heal your broken heart and lift you over the days ahead. May your memories sustain you in the days, months and years to come.
