Memories Timeline


  1. You certainly have my condolences in the passing of your mother. I know it has been a long struggle for her and many trials for you. You have been a blessing to her in your care and love for her. May the comfort and peace that only comes from God be with you in this time.

  2. I remember Julia Portzer when she lived on Weirton Heights. She was a very livey woman who carried herself very well. She would visit with friends and neighbors in the area. They shared many things: like fruits and vegitables and advice on every day living and on how to best crochet an afaghan. My heart and prayers goes out to her family.
