It was a blessing to have such a beautiful aunt in my life. I'll always remember the great childhood I enjoyed and the summer trips out to Warren from NJ to visit my aunt and uncle and all the great times we had to share. It always brings a smile to my face whenever I look back on those times. From minor league ball games to the Kinzua Dam trips, Aunt Mary will always have a special place in my heart.

Craig and Rob,

I'm not sure if you remember me, but I remember your family well. We are distant cousins; your grandmother Gertie was my grandmother's sister. Your parents were a striking couple, and I recall the fun times we had with them at football games watching you guys play. Your dad and my mom always enjoyed seeing each other. It's difficult to loose your parents, suddenly like your dad or of age like your mom. Know that my thoughts are with you.
