Greg, Donna, Tammy, Mike, Greg, and Lexus, Our deepest conolences to all of you! If there’s anything we can do… don’t hesitate to call.
Dear Mr.Snape, Charlie and I are truly sorry for your loss. I did’t get to know Mrs. Snape to well, and I’m sorry for that. I can tell you, from reading the obituary on line that we had the same Anniversary. Charlie and I were married on April 5, 1980.
You shall be remembered in my Mass Prayers. I remember delivering the Herald Star to your family many years ago, your mother was always so very kind and thoughtful.
I worked with Theresa at the Weirton geriatric Center from 1973-77. She was one of my favorite nurses and I always enjoyed working with her. My deepest sympathies to her family.
