  1. Lindy and Nina were the first people I met on Windsor Drive. They came out to ask me if I was going to be their new neighbor the day I first looked at the house. I could immediately tell they were both great people. We always enjoyed visiting with each other over yard work. Nina even gave us the beginnings of our forsythia bush that blooms beautifully every year.

    After Nina passed Lindy would love to come over and spend time with friends at the house. He was frequently the first guest to arrive for our NYE party. He always had a smile on his face or a funny story to tell. It was an honor to be neighbors of such good folks. RIP.
