    Dear Deffner Family, So sorry to hear of Mrs. Deffner's passing. I have many fond memories, one being of Kathy and myself in the summer going up to Brownsville Rd. with a list of items to buy at the local bakery. Also going to Bingo with my mother and the Sunnyland group of ladies. She's now with her heavenly family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you all; I'm sorry I can't be there with you. God Bless.
