Dear Patty, Bill and family, Please accept my condolences on Martha’s death. I am so sorry that I missed the visitation and Liturgy. I didn’t get around to reading my newspapers this week until Saturday night. I remember Martha fondly from high school. She was a beautiful young woman with such a warm smile and manner. I share your sadness.
Sincerely,
Rich Polinsky

Dear Patty, Sharon & Family,

Marci, as we always called her, was a cousin of mine. Growing up on Pinch Run we were neighbors, and spent many times at each others house, including picnics at Wheeling Park. When my Mom & I would go shopping we would always see Marci & Sophie , and gab and catch up, they were always together. Marci was a sweetheart, always smiling and laughing, just a super lady. There will always be a special place for Marci in my heart.
