Dave and Rosann - Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Mom. I have fond memories of being at your home when we were kids. In your (Dave) budding electrician days we built robot costumes for the halloween parades, and the sledding on Beech St and 14th Ext. Of course your Mom was a gracious hostess for our shenanigans. It was nice to hear from Rosann recently that your Mom had remained active and sharp throughout her life.

Our sympathy. I grew up on Mary's street, visited and played with Mike, and Dave. I always remember celebrating Orthodox Christmas at there home. I also have memories of being able to go to the main living area, watching TV, and having popcorn made by the grandmother Rosina. Rest in peace.....
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Deepest sympathy to the family of Mary ! Fond memories of Mary’s effervescent smile every time I saw her fill my heart with gladness. Having known her since childhood as my mom was friends with her. We would go to Monaca to the pool as Mary’s guests! Such a treat for a youngster. Mary was always happy, upbeat and kindhearted. May she Rest In Peace after a long earthly life and be reunited with her Monaca friends and family welcoming her to heaven.

Mary and my mom were best friends as you well know. I had a strong dream about my mom the night before your mom died. My prayer is that they are both in heaven hugging and making up for time apart. You have my deepest sympathy!
