    Losing a loved one is never easy, especially Mr. Snow. Mr. & Mrs. Snow lived next door to my family for 13 years in Lima, OH. I remember playing kick the can with their kids and Mr. Snow calling my sister Emily "Floyd". Mr. Snow would call our house on Christmas Eve pretending to be Santa Clause and told us to run to bed after talking with Santa so he could deliver presents. Mrs. Snow and family, I pray God gives you the love & grace needed during this difficult time. Respectfully, Carrie Jones
