Denise, Josh, Jerry & family,
Remembering your Mom & wife from when we were friends in High School. I’ll always think of the good times we had & the day you were born, Denise. Your Mom was a Very Special Lady & I will never forget her. Josh, seeing you that day out @ Elk Haven, I did go in to see your Mom, I felt so sad seeing her there like she was and remembering the way “We” used to be. Life takes it’s toll on us and now she is at peace. She was so happily married, playing with her flower gardens and so “proud” of her family. Her memory will live on in our hearts & I will send you all my smypathy & love. Thinking of You all, Rose {McManigle-Neff} Schloder ~ Emporium, Pa

Jerry, Josh, and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley will always have a special place in my heart. I miss singing “Shooting Star” and “Hotel California” with her. She always sang the entire song and we would only screw up once in awhile. We also had a few heart to heart conversations and she certainly expressed how much she loved her family. I tried to visit with her every afternoon if I wasn’t super busy and she loved when I made her milkshakes and brought Pepsi or Mt. Dew. I really got to know Shirley and I will miss her although I know she has peace now. Sorry again, guys!!

Jerry and Family,
My deepest sympathy. I remember how Shirley was such a good friend to my sister Diane Hasselman. I am sure they have met in Heaven already and are so happy to see each other.

Prayers are with you to comfort you in your time of loss.
She is surrounded, now, by angels and wrapped in the arms of Our Lord.

Leave A Condolence
