Sorry for your loss. Dave was a great distant friend I had gotten to know through work. He was a pleasure to talk with and was one of the many technicians that I have gotten to know over the years. He will be greatly missed!!

I remember Marianne Foley very well from The Beaver Falls High school. We had some classes together & knew each other well. I always liked her. Marianne sure developed into a beautiful & educated girl. R.I.P. Marianne, the BFHS Class of 1960 can be proud of your accomplishments

Sr - I really miss working with you, building things. Maybe we can build a 'big' garage together in heaven - 2 blocks higher and 3 feet wider...

Rest in peace...

I worked with Vi at Union National Bank in New Brighton in the 1960's. Neither before nor since have I met a nicer, sweeter or kinder person. She was a blessing to everyone she met with that open and charming smile. I am sorry about her passing and know how you will miss her. God bless you all and welcome VI home .
