    I am sorry for the Stump family on the loss of Mrs. Stump. As a young girl we lived in an apartment over their store. She was always so nice to my sister and I when we were lucky enough to get a quarter from our parents for some candy. She was so patient while we had to make the big decision of what kind of candy to buy. RIP Mrs. Stump.

    I was so sorry to learn today of the passing of Mrs. Stump. I visted with her for years during her residency at McDowell Place, bringing her the christian fiction she so enjoyed. It was a blessing to know her as her kindness and Christian faith shone through. My deepest sympathy to her family for the loss of a special lady

    I have have many fond memories of Myrtle and Link Stump. They very graciously took me to away Ball games with Patsy. There always was many memorable conversations with them in the Grocery. Love and best wishes to Phillip, Kathryn, and Sue Anne and the rest of the family. I am sure she passed as she lived, fully in control. She will be missed by many people.
