  9. Dear Jimmy, Mary Ann and families, I’ve always told people when asked where I’m from, that I’m from Weirton, WV. Even though I’ve lived in Lima for more than half my life and only 7 years in Weirton. It’s because of people like your Mom that made it so. I have so many memories of just stopping in to see her and your Dad (it didn’t matter if you were there or not), of proms, homecomings, graduation days and other milestones in our lives that she shared. I guess it’s times like these that make us stop and really see how very blessed we are for having people like you and your families in our lives. I wish I could be there for you tomorrow, but please know that while body won’t be there the heart will be. My sincerest condolences. Pam Berardinelli (Brown)
