    Dear Heather, Eber and Family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy at the loss of your mother. She was a caring, hardworking lady. I always enjoyed running into her and having a chat, whether at the park mailbox (back in the day) or at Giant Eagle. One thing is certain, she loved her boys and was so proud oof you all!
