    Dear Leah and Dale,

    I was so sorry to hear about your mother. I was driving down North Church Drive last week, looking at your old house and pointing out to my 5 year-old boy where I was once babysat as a little girl. Your mother was so kind and patient with me! I still have a little Christmas ornament she gave me many years ago. The last time I saw her, was six years ago. I took my parents over to her apartment, and we all went out to lunch together. She was a good conversationalist, and my parents enjoyed reminiscing with her.

    I will remember her in my daily prayers. May God bless you both during this time.

    Love,
    Diana (Plumer) Wolpaw

    Dear Leah and Dale and family,
    We are so sorry to hear about your mother. She was always such a kind, friendly, wonderful person. I will always remember her as being perfectly dressed with perfect hair, looking absolutely beautiful all the time. I have such great memories of our times at Ocean City, working bingo and other functions at St. John Bosco and, of course, the parties. Chuck and I loved to spend time with your parents. We were all blessed to have your parents as part of the Bosco gang. I visited with her in June this year. We laughed and talked about old times. Unfortunately, I didn’t get Mary Ann over to see her.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you now.
    Love,
    Colleen (Smith) and Chuck Nehoda
    Mary Ann Smith

    Dear Dale & Leah,

    With love and happiness I remember Melba. She was a great part of my young years in the Cincinnati area. When Aunt Henrietta, Uncle Walt, Melba, and Bill all lived together, they took care of me when my mother was in the hospital for many weeks. I was three years old at the time. We were all very close until everyone moved to the Cleveland area.

    May you take comfort knowing she is with our Lord.

    Love,

    Judy Hobbs
