Private Condolence

On behalf of Glenna, Betty and Linda Hume we send our condolences to the Hartley family and friends. Fond memories of our days on the farm remind me of mom's month-watering cherry pies baked with cherries from the Hartley farm. Bell School was another place our families had in common. Mrs. Hartley was always a welcoming family friend. Now, new memories are made with taking our grandchildren to Springhill Farms but never forgetting "the good old days" and the prominent family home that sat at the entrance!
