    Mrs. Montpelier was such a kind woman. I first met her working at Kinney’s in Ogdensburg and she was such a delight to wait on! Always smiling. Anne & Family, I know you take much comfort in knowing she is now back with her Husband and beloved Son. What a reunion that must have been! Always know she will be with each one of you in your heart and your cherished memories of her will live on forever. Sending all my love to you!

    Somehow I can see ‘Lizzy’ and my Mom knitting and playing cards in the skies above. I relish memories of her trying to teach me a few ‘keys’ on the piano while she and her husband would always be motivating. RIP Elizabeth. Leaving some is always sorrowful for us yet you’ll relish in those whom await you in heaven.
