"What you stand for now are years and years of memories to many local families. You will be missed 💔"

"I am torn," "Liz Carpanzano said. "Hoping you are going to really enjoy your next chapter but at the same time going to miss the barn!!!! You’ve made so many happy memories for everyone - THANK YOU!!!"
