With love, Jennifer DeLongo Kennedy and family

Joanne and Phil, It is quite the shock to hear about PJ. I just can’t believe it. I was stunned. I haven’t seen him in years, but we all used to hang out down in the camp and play wiffle ball in the street. He stuck up for me more than once at the bus stop when the other boys picked on me. One of the funniest times was when the snow plow was 3 streets over and we were sledding down the street, and PJ rallied everyone together to make a wagon full of snowballs to wail at the plow when it hit our sledding street. He was always having fun. I will never forget him. God bless your family. Thinking of you and praying for you during this very difficult time. May God comfort you, now and always.

Phil, Joanne & Family,

Our deepest prayers go to all of you in this time of sorrow. P.J. was a caring and free spirited person with a smile always on his face. P.J. & I went to school together and a memory that I will never forget is in the 8th grade him & I was on the hockey team together and we were in the championships and I was sick one day & so was he and we had lost the game due to us being absent, we often had laughed about that as we had gotton older. Another great memory is, P.J.’s, Kim Kish and Ryan had all shared the same day for their birthdays…may now he share all the laughter and loving ways that he so shared here with us on earth, as he now enters the gates of heaven.

Love,

Ryan & Dawn

Phil&Joanne,Mike,Joe and families,

Though years ago I can still see him smiling and yelling where’s my “Nunkin Ni” coming in the door from work. He was the first person in the world to ever show me how to truely love someone and how to show it through the “little things” that we do everyday, be it starting my car when it was cold outside or waiting up on me to get home after 3-11 with candles and dinner. He had a funloving attitude and a goofy laugh that was contaigous and still rings in my ears today. I still remember he and my mom riding up the hill with the sun tops off of that old blue camero the summer they worked in steubenville together, they had the music blasting and my mom was laughing and shaking her head because PJ was singing away…When my mom died he was the very first face that I looked up and saw in the funeral home. She died on his birthday. Now I will remember them both on that day..and keep the best parts of our lives in my heart forever. May they both enjoy their “ride ” through heaven and greet us all some day when we meet again. I’ll pray for you and all of your family to find a way to remember the best parts of P and find Peace in your hearts….. With love always, Mandy

PJ always had a smile on when he was walking through the hallways at school. He was in my sister’s class and Mike was in mine. I don’t know that many of us ever saw him without a smile. He was fun to be around and had a way of cheering you up with silly things he would say or do. My prayers are with all of you in this sad unexpected loss. My GOD bring you comfort as only he is able.
