We presently are living in Tucson Arizona, however, at one time we lived in the Exton area.
We just recently learned that one of our former neighbors back there passed away on December 15th, 2008. We would be very grateful if someone would send us a copy of the obituary notice. Our friends name was - Barbara Dillman - She and her husband lived at 567 Westwood Dr. My email address is - [email protected]
Thank you to anyone that can help us.
