April and Dee,

Your mother was a very sweet woman. I have so many funny memories of her when us girls were growing up together. I am so sorry to hear that you have lost such a wonderful person. She has touched many lives and she will be greatly missed.

Your family is in my prayers.

Dee and Lenny, you guys have been such good friends over the past 5 years. You have always opened your hearts to my family and now it is time for my family to do the same. Dee, we never met your mom but I’m sure she was just as caring as you are. Ashlee and I hope you two and Lexi keep your faith as to now she is with God and in a better place. These are tough times and the best way to get through them is to look to each other for love.

With our deepest sympathy Ashlee and I want to say we are sorry for your loss.

I am so sad to hear of Betty’s passing. My family lived on Bessemer Street in Benwood and Betty and I attended Union Grade School and Union High School together. If you lived in that area you always had so much fun and at that time we all knew our neighbors and those memories are lifelong.

Ruth was a great gal, Albert, my sincere condolences.

The last time Betty and I emailed each other she said she had health problems especially with her vision. You were a good friend Betty and may you rest in peace.
