Condolences

My condolences to Anna's family on your loss. I remember her as a very friendly and kind woman who always took the time to talk with my late husband, Joe and me whenever we saw her. Having lived in Swoyersville until 1995 and with Joe growing up across the street from her home, I had the opportunity to know both Anna and her husband as very friendly people. May she rest in peace. Karen Habersky
