To The Family of Marjorie Derr:
I wish to express my sincere sympathy in the passing of your dear mother. My dear late mother (Ann Taylor) was a customer of your Mom's when she had a beauty shop. My mother knew your Mom for many years. I was also a customer of hers also. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Nancy Taylor
