    My thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of Mrs. Waldron. I rode the Jackson Township school bus with Stephanie and her little brother (Frank Pletch’s bus #3) about 50 years ago. In the summer, I would ride my bike to the Reagan elevator to get an ice-cold pop and there I met Mrs. Waldron. She was always so nice. I wish peace and happiness to her family. -Greg Finch

      What a pleasant and coincidental memory. I would also ride my bike there with my brother or a friend to get a pop when mom was working there. Thank you for the kind thoughts.

    I was your neighbor when you lived on the little gravel road 650 S many many moons ago. I remember when I would come down to your house I was so impressed with your family dog, who was so protective of you guys while your father was away (my dogs were always outside dogs) it was so cool that your dog was truly a family member. When we moved from the house up the lane just east of your house so the only time I saw your mother was in the CP library. At CP she was my go to person if I needed to talk. Your mother was always so kind to me but if I needed to be set straight on something she could do that too.
    So sorry for your loss.
