With thoughts and prayers to the entire Gallagher family. Mrs. Gallagher was always so kind to us whenever we saw her (and she never failed to ask how our dog was doing). A truly beautiful person from a wonderful family. And a great cook!

How sad to learn that one of our dear park friends is gone! My heart goes out to the family. I'll always remember meeting Gene and Lois Jean in the park almost daily, and our dogs were always so happy to see them and wait for the treats that Gene would have for them. And I would also meet Lois Jean in the library at times. She was such a wonderful person. She will be missed by many.
