    Sending my condolences to Corky and family. We so enjoyed your family while we lived in Ladoga. I am still enjoying our Brewer furniture pieces. We reminisce quite often how the boys carried a heavy desk up the stairs at our home for our daughter Laura when we lived in our lovely old Victorian home. We have many memories of days gone by. May God be with your family, and thanks for your friendship during our family’s Ladoga years.
