Dear Jean:

On behalf of the family of the late Miriam J. (Buch) Good, I want to offer you and your family our sympathy. The years have seen our family drift apart, but I remember my grandmother’s fondness of Hal and his family, and her dedication to her brother, Harold, and wife, Gertrude. As a youngster, I visited them at their Lancaster home off of Route 501 and even remember Gertrude working at Hager’s Department Store. May your memories bring you comfort today and for years to come.

Michael Tod Good
