To the Dannemiller Family – my condolences in your loss. Though I did not know Mrs. Dannemiller personally – I did work with some of the family while at WCS and wanted to send them my love and prayers. Now I realize where they received their very diligent work ethic. May fond memories of their ‘mom’ get them through this very difficult time.

So sad to hear Alfreda is gone. I grew up with this family from 6 yrs old through high school and she was one of my mom’s closest friends. As many times as I moved out of state and came back home, I would always go see her. I will miss visiting her, always went to get rhubarb every year and see what flowers she had growing. Alfreda, you will always be on my mind, I will miss you.
