    I fondly remember Ethel from the day she was married, to the many family get togethers at her home and on the beach on Long Beach Island. We will always remember her for her soft voice and beautiful smile. A wonderful caring lady.

    Jeanie and siblings: Your Mother was like my second mother when we were growing up. I will always remember the lunches she would pack for our “picnics” in your backyard or ours, her fabulous stuffed peppers, African Violets growing on the kitchen windowsill, and the weeks I got to spend with all of you at LBI. You have my deepest sympathy and prayers in her passing. May the Lord keep you strong during this time.
