Joe, I’m am so sorry to hear about your wife. Know you are in my prayers. Sue Kopp Bruno
I was so sorry to hear of Faye's passing. She was a dear friend, especially during our Jr. High years. I lived down the street and we hung out with Susan Banks, who lived a few doors up from Faye. One of my fondest memories is when the Wyoming Valley experienced the great flood of 1972, our family agreed to house friends who'd been flooded. Faye's mom willingly allowed me to stay at their house for weeks! That's when we formed a bond. We enjoyed listening to music, doing crafty things and playing outside. I'm amazed at how clear the memories are, even 40 years later. Please accept my condolences. May God grant you peace.

Just a heartfelt thank you for your sincere care and kindness in helping us journey our Wife, Mom, and Grandmother home to the Lord. You made a difficult time much easier.
