  1. Cinda and Billy, sorry for your loss. Your mom was an important part of our childhood. We always looked forward to her Christmas letters where she made use of every square inch of space on the margins. She will be missed. Eileen

  2. Condolences to the family of Patty. She was a member of our Weirton Women’s Club, and I met her at one of the meetings. She certainly was a lovely woman, and will be missed. Colleen Mindzak
