I am so sorry to hear about Babe’s passing. She was such a beautiful and kind person. Every time I would see her, without fail, she would proudly talk about her nephews, Danny and Kevin, and tell me what was going on in their lives. My sincerest condelences to Mr. and Mrs. Tice, Danny, Kevin and the Metz family.

MARY WILL BE SADLY MISSED BY HER ADKINS FAMILY. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO CARE FOR HER. SHE WAS SUCH A CARING PERSON. SHE WAS ALWAYS THINKING OF OTHERS. I DON’T THINK THERE WAS A DAY WHEN SHE DIDN’T ASK ME HOW MY CHILDREN WERE OR HOW I WAS DOING. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND FILL YOU WITH PEACE KNOWING SHE IS IN A BETTER PLACE.

Rosie and family,

I think I have known Babe just about all of my life.

Babe and Wellsville just go together.

You can’t remember one without remembering the other.

I recall playing jacks with her and you on the next door neighbors door stoop, many years ago.

May she rest in peace.

There is not a sweeter family in the city of Wellsville than the Metz family. They are each one of a kind in personality but all the same in kindness and love for the people of our town. Wellsville becomes a little less friendly without Babe. All the love of our family to yours.
