    We owe Twyla so much. She had the key to our home, which allowed us to see it and then buy it. She then helped us learn about the Villages as well as how to be a good neighbor to others here. Still have her handwritten recipe for “forgotten cookies”, but she herself will never be forgotten! She is always in our minds and the home next to ours will always be “Twyla’s house” to us. Rest in peace, neighbor!
