I send my deepest sympathy on the passing of Sara. Ken was a cousin of my father Tom Roush and each was an usher at their weddings. As a child I can remember visiting them at home in Centre Hall. In recent years I took my late father to visit them at their Grange Fair tent on parade day and to attend their lovely 70th anniversary celebration. Please take comfort in your mother's long and happy life surrounded by those she loved.

My deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of Mrs. Frazier's family. She was an icon. I always enjoyed talking with her. When I had a cast on my leg and could not ride the school bus, she gave me a ride to school for a few weeks. We had a grand time together. I will miss her.
Share your memories of her often and she will always be with you. God Bless you all.

Mrs. Frazier was a very favorite teacher of mine. I always enjoyed stopping at her tent at Grange Fair and talking with her. Our heartfelt condolences to the family.
