I am sending a message of sympathy to the family of Wanetta Frost, as I knew her. She was a member of the Harpursville graduating class of 1962. We had many good times, good memories. But I remember her most as being quite the scrapper in gym class. She would not give up the basketball easily!

Carl, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. She was always such a friendly, happy, person and ALWAYS made sure to ask about my family when we'd run into each other. Take care and know that friends from long ago are thinking of you at this difficult time.

I am a high school classmate of Wanetta's and was so very sorry to hear of her recent passing at way too young an age. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time.
