2008 - a Year of Goodbyes The close of 2008 brought tears and farewells to the long-standing Friendship family.
This season of loss began when Tom's wife, Rosemary Kerr, passed away in October. Rosemary was instrumental in the formation and running of Friendship since the beginning. As the "Queen of Friendship," her presence is greatly missed.
Tom's brother-in-law, Walter Young, husband to Lillian Kerr Young, passed away in late October. Walter ran the parking lot for over 20 years, where he got to socialize with all the visitors here at Friendship, which he called his "little buddies".
Tom's sister, Lula Kerr Fox, also known as "Minnie Pearl" here at Friendship, passed away in December. She was a shareholder and vendor here from 1968-2002. Her impression of "How-dyyyyyyy!" will always be remembered.
Tom's sister-in-law, Alice Kerr, wife to Tom's brother Edward, passed away in November.
