"Dear John and family,

Please accept my condolences on the death of your loved one.  Barbara and I became friends when she transferred to Hagerstown in 9th grade.  She impressed me by earning straight "As" in algebra while I usually was in a fog of uncertainty.

Read I Thessalonians 4:13-18 and gain comfort in the promise that there will be a resurrection of our dead loved ones when Christ returns.


Geraldine (Bicknell) St. Clair"

"We were saddened to hear recently of the death of Barbara, a classmate of our Hagerstown High School Class of '51.  Barbara had a rare warmth of personality and beauty of character that has left a lasting impression on all who knew her.  Both in and out of the classroom we recall the humor and insightful quips that made us laugh. Nothing will take from us those wonderful memories which will now be shared with her family.   Class of '51 of Hagerstown, IN"
