Viv, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I loved your note...it made me cry...I am sure the ladies are having a great time in heaven...you know how they loved life and their families. God, I miss them! I didn't realize that your mother was born the same year as mine. I hope my dad can handle them all. I send you all my love and prayers...Carol and Bill

Years ago, Chris and I made our first trip to PA as a "couple" from Columbus. We weren't married yet so Mimi put me on the living room couch and Chris got the guest bedroom. That night, I thought there was a prowler around the house. Uncle Herb and I checked things out and found no one around - he probably thought I was nuts... Aunt Mimi assured us both that we were safe and we all went back to sleep. The next day we picked pears out back - they had the best pear trees - and we had a great weekend visit with them. Today, Chris insists that our grandkids call her "Mimi". Aunt Mary will always have a special place in our hearts and she will live as long as we are here to remember her. Keep watch over us, Mimi...

I have a very special memory of my Aunt Mary that I will always cherish. When I was little, my dad, Mary's brother, moved our family to Columbus Ohio for better work opportunities. For many years after, our family would travel back to the valley, annaully, to visit. We always had lunch at Aunt Marys. She would meet us at the front door, welcome us with a great smile, escort us to an array of lunch foods and encourage us to eat all we wanted. There were EIGHT of us, including my mom and dad. I remember her sitting at the kitchen table, sipping her coffee and just smiling at us all. Now, as an adult with children of my own I cannot imagine the havoc we all could (and probably did) cause. I can only remember Aunt Mary with her patient smile that said "I love you".
