    Our heartfelt sympathies go to the family of Louise. We remember her from years ago during our PTA time with the LaRosa family. She was a very warm and beautiful lady. May she rest in peace and may her family find peace at this time of sorrow. Ron and Jan Seith

    Dear Jeff and Kim, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at the loss of your mom. You may not remember us, we lived next door to you from 1971-72, we were transferred from PA. Kim, I think you babysat for us. We were not aware of your dad’s death and I want you to know that your parents were so very nice to us when we moved to Lantern Lane and knew no one at all. May God’s strength and peace remain with you and happy memories be your source of joy, always. Sincerely, Bob and Mary Ann Kane
