My deepest sympanthies to my best pals Sue and Debbie, their families and mom Sally at this time and the days ahead that will bring heavy hearts. I'm sorry I can't be there to give lots of hugs and support but my thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you every step of the way. A human life is a story told by God. Death leaves a heartache no one ca heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal My love, thoughts and prayers are with you all now and always

I used to work with Sue at Genetti Manor in Dickson City back in 1993 and 1994. I remember Sue hiring me on the spot when I put in an application for the Manor and got the job. I had to leave for medical reasons and I miss working there a lot. I'm divorced and living in Scranton now. My prayers go out to Sue, Jeff and the rest of the family. I dont drive and couldn't get a ride the funeral home and saw the obit in the paper at the library. Sue talked about her father a lot. I remember Ross and i will be thinking of Sue and Jeff and I hope they will be okay. talk to you soon.
