Dear Jackie, Shirley & Freddie,

My deepest sympathy to you for the great loss you have experienced. Aunt Mary E., being the oldest in the family was the supreme law at home.

I certainly missed her a lot when you moved to W. Virginia. It’s

been a long time since I last saw her. I am quite sure she is in heaven enjoying her husband, brothers & sister.

It is God’s will that she is not with us anymore. She will always be with me in spirit, in love & in my prayers.

With very much love,

Mrs. Josephine Laman

Dearest Freddie & Jack,

Some of my fondest childhood memories were visits & vacations to your home when I was a little girl. Your parents always treated me soo special. I remember them walking into grandma Shaughnessy

house with a huge doll house for me one Christmas. They came to visit me in Virgina & Las Vegas and we always had a wonderful time together. I’m sure it was hard for your mom not having your dad. They were just such a wonderful couple and soo kind & generous to all. I pray they are together now in Heaven

and that we will all join them one day!

With love,

your cousin

Jackie, Fred, Shirley and Family,

Cathy and I extend our deepest sympathy to all of you. In our opinion, Aunt Mary E’s greatest legacy is that she along with Uncle Fred raised two of the finest men that we know.

All of the Roth’s were gracious hosts during our many weekend visits to the “Roth Resort” in Wheeling.

In particular, I’m both touched and appreciative of the generosity that your parents showed by paying my mother’s hospital bill in full shortly after my birth 44 years ago!

I’m sure that the celebration in heaven when your parents were reunited was a sight to behold …

Your cousin,
