As a teenager I spent many nights with the Trone family. There was always room for one more. Fern's quiet smile never faltered and there was always time to be spent with all of us. One of the last times I visited her she was busy working in the kitchen. That hard work was also a constant. My sympathies to all of you. Judith/Judy (Skiles) Anderson
