Eddie & Jimmy, I am so sorry to hear about your mothers death. Aunt Janet was a very special lady. I have many fond memories of our times at the lake with your family. She is now in heaven with my parents and the rest of the aunts and uncles who have passes into our Lords hands. I Just returned today from a mission trip in Jamaica and will not be able to attend the funeral. I will keep her, you and your families in my prayers.Christine V. Ullmann (over 4 years ago)
Eddie & Jimmy, so very sorry to hear about Aunt Janet and very sad we are unable to make it back to Pa. I will always remember the great times at the lake when we would come back to Pa as kids and the baseball cards she always got for me and my brothers. She's now resting in the hands of Gods with my Dad and the rest of the family. God Bless and comfort you during this time.Stanley Kilyanek (over 4 years ago)
Dear Eddie and Family, Please accept my sincerest condolences on your Mom's passing. My Mom and Janet worked together at Topps. My Mom passed in March of 2013. I am sure with the other friends they had that passed they are all making Bazooka gum upstairs! I graduated with you from PAHS and remember you also. Once again, i am sorry for your loss.Ellen Scatena (over 4 years ago)
