    Oh my goodness, so sorry to learn of MRS Reavis’ passing. When we first moved into this neighborhood, she would stop by almost every afternoon to chat, sometimes of that day’s events, sometimes a great memory of the beloved Whitlesey’s Meat Market, sometimes of all the birds and ducks visiting her. She loved to provide for the birds! A great woman I am glad to have met.

    Ren, Mary, Ralph and families,

    I am sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing and am sending my feeble thoughts and prayers for peace and love to you all. I not only remember your parents, I also remember Whittlesey’s ( the best meat market EVER!). Please know that you are loved and cared for by so many of us just as your Mom was.

    Love to you.

    Cyndi Doty Aldrich
