Mrs Holmes always had a Hugh smile & Was genuinely glad to see me when I came back to Dayton and would visit Scott & Bev. I remember visiting her at on Salem Avenue for happy hour when she worked a Sully’s. I always felt welcome at the house on Parkwood too! I glad I’ll always have these memories of her and the Holmes family.My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
