Marguerite, so sorry to hear of your passing. You are the last of our "northern Antonito neighborhood". There was Harriet Carbutt, Robert and Lucy Carbutt, Bill and Cleo Hicks, and my parents Herbert and Opal Nance. What an example you have been to all of us. It was a great country neighborhood to grow up in. You taught all 5 of my children in 2nd grade in Romeo Elementary. Grateful for the memories of you and your family. May God continue to bless all of the lives you had an influence on. Thankful to have known you and the example you were to all. Jennice Nance Quintana
