What a wonderful woman and special friend,and neighbor she was . She loved all the kids in the neighborhood and showed it every time she was with them .She loved our daughter so very much that she would let her do what ever she wanted,like filling a bucket of water and give her a rag to play with,she would wash the out side of her house and of course Tracy thought she was helping ! Some morning she would go out the back door without her breakfast or her hair,combI would ask where you going ?She would reply got to go help “Nanny” ! So we will sadly say goodbye but will see you again in heaven ! We loved you so much !

Heavy heart with Mrs Quillens passing but I know she is heaven with Papa and that is makes me happy. So many memories of growing up
In our little neighborhood in Ohio, god bless her for letting a little girl show
Up bright everyday to see what adventures we have that day! She would let me help her cook chicken dumplings and taught me about flowers and building there back
Porch with papa too! She would see me every day with messy hair and not haven eaten breakfast as I would run out of the house to hers every morning! She would give me a bucket of water to clean her house and I thought that was so fun!
Rest In Peace sweet friend I was truly blessed to have had you in my life! God speed love you Tracy Reapp-Loew
