Gordon, Duane, and Pat,

The "Cope" family has always had a close relationship with the "Moore" family. Ethel was part of the "weekly family" at my hair salon.  She was one of my "support ladies" during the difficult time following my husband's death. Ethel was a wonderful friend and I will miss her. Please know you have our sympathy and friendship.
