So sorry about your loss dear cousins. I remember the cutest little kid that he was. It seems like yesterday. I am lost for words. I fractured my 2 ankle bones and then the pandemic too, or I would have shown up to see all of you. I am still crawling around at home. Again, you have my sympathy to have lost another brother so young.

Jackie, Joni, Janie and families you have our deepest sympathy in the loss of your brother, Matt. I remember Matt as being the cutest and sweetest little boy. So sorry you lost both your brothers at such a young age. We moved back to Washington, PA last November after being away in Ohio for 25 years. Due to the virus, we decided it was better not to attend. We would love to have seen you all and meet your families while paying our respects. Again, you have our deepest sympathy. Love, Cousin, Berni & Bill
