    So sorry to learn of the loss of our dear neighbor, your mother and family member, Mary Clossin. We were on our front lawn when tbe emergency vehicles came to her house on a Fri afternoon. I did not know her personally.
    She was a good neighbor and kept her house and lawn well maintained. So very sorry for your loss.
    She is a loss to all of us on Penbrook Ln.
    Prayers for her family as you grieve. My husband & I bought our house at 3926 Penbrook Ln early spring 1994. Your mother was a very nice lady.
    Please feel free to contact us if we can help you make contacts to help empty the house, find a realtor, or knowledge about trash pickup.
    God Bless you all!!
