  1. DearAlma, Terry and I read in the paper today that Tom had passed away. We want you to know we are thinking of you and all the family, too, and will keep you in our prayers. I will always remember our good times when I taught with you; we live in Pittsburgh now. Take Care, Janet and Terry

  2. My dear friend Alma, Robert and I send our symapathies to you at this time. Wish I lived closer to spend time with you. We hold you close to our hearts at this time. God Bless Janice

  3. We will all miss our Dad and our Grandpa very much, as he touched all of our lives so much over the years. Though we lived far away from Weirton, Grandpa came to visit each time we moved to help paint and teach us how to repair the house. By doing so, he taught us about character and life. He gave us support during trying times. Once we were settled in a new town, he would come and make the children feel special – Michael and Beth will always remember the clubhouse and the memories that Grandpa gave us: especially how Beth was always declared the winner in the hula hoop contests & the longest fry contests! When we think of Dad/Grandpa, we remember a man who was tough on the outside and soft on the inside. His legacy is all of those who follow his example and tried/are trying to be strong, loving parents. We all love you very much.

  4. Sandy, I was sorry to read of the death of your father, and of the previous passing of your sister. It has been years since we were neighbors, but I often think of those days. Please accept my sincere sympathy.
