  8. Our sympathy to the family of such a nice lady. Fifty four years ago my now husband asked me on our first date we were to meet at “Red’s” down the square. That was the best day of both our lives, freshly out of school my soon to be husband was drafted, two years later we were married. Last year we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Thank you Red & Doris for having that little store for us to start our wonderful life together in. Rest in peace
