  4. I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of June & Teresa. The Luthers were our next door neighbors when I was growing up and very good friends of my parents. Their friendship continued until the passing of my Mom & Dad. June was such a sweet lady with a beatiful smile. My sympathy to Gary and other family members. I am praying for your comfort during this time.

  7. I was so sorry to read of June’s passing.
    June and I went to school together and I saw her a few years ago at one of our high school alumni reunions.
    I lived across the river at Ela. My father was Dover Dean, the fire warden.
    The years pass and as we reach this age and see one of our school mate’s obituary in the paper is a reminder of how short life is.
    I cannot imagine the loss of two at the same time. Please accept my condolence and know that I am thankful for the memory of June and your family. Swain County was a good place to grow up in.
