To the Family of Harry Metz:

Sorry to hear about your father.

He was a friend of my father’s and use to stop by to visit us on Junior Avenue. He was a great guy and always told it like it was. I had a lot of respect for him.

Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

PETE CUFFARO

WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA
