Dear "Bing" and Family,
Please accept my sympathy on the loss of one of the sweetest, funniest ladies I have ever met. The world has lost a truly gentle soul. I will miss her greatly. I will treasure the last card she sent me, a picture of Kelly dressed in a "Red Hat". May God comfort you in your sorrow, knowing she is with him and not suffering any more.
If Kelly needs a home please let me know. 740-452-0392.

DEAR HOWARD FAMILY: I am saddened by the world losing such a TRULY joyous soul, yet I know her suffering was much. Words cannot ever tell you the gratitude that Mom and I feel here in PA for all that you boys have done for Aunt Roseann!!! You were truly the light in her eyes and she and Uncle Bing could not have raised 3 finer men!!! Please know that we are both there with you hugging you all at the memorial service. If only Mom would let me drive her there, we would be with you in person, but she is too stubborn. God bless you all and know that we love you all so so so much!!!!! Uncle Bing and you boys will be in my prayers nightly. I will not be sad but I will remember all the wonderful happy memories I have to keep my heart smiling forever. I wish you all the same thing. love always, Debbi and Mary Isella
