Dear Jason & Jenelle,
I want to extend my condolences to you and your family. I am the daughter of your mom’s first husband’s brother, Tom. I was a bridesmaid in your parent’s wedding.
We had many fun visits to both Benwood and Bethlehem. I sometimes brought my guitar and sang songs at your mom & Chiz’s. I have a lot of good memories of your mom.
I live in Pittsburgh and will not be able to attend in person. Please tell your mom ‘hi’.
Both my mom & dad always enjoyed visits with your mom.
So sorry about you losing your dad at such a young age. I just lost my mom in Dec of 2013 & my dad in March of 2014. He was the last survivor of the 10 Yarnevic children. He was 90 when he passed from here.

In deepest sympathy,
