  1. Hopefully, this will reach Joan Linden. I am hoping that this is the same Joanie Linden who went to Marland Heights School back in the 50’s and who, along with her father, went with a group of girls to see Around the World in 80 days. If so, I send my sympathies and hope that you will email me at sjaesq@aol.com. Jane Carson Anderson

  2. I am saddened by your loss. Please accept my condolences in your time of sorrow. Your family will be in the prayers of my family.

  3. We are saddened by the passing of Uncle Pete. Although it has been some time since we’ve seen him, my father (Peter J. Buzzanell) has told many stories and passed on fond memories of the time he spent with him. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and we feel your loss.
