    Suzanne and Rosanne, I remember your Mom and Dad. My parents and I were neighbors of your Uncle Frank and Aunt Mary Pazyra on Proctor Avenue. When I was little we would go to your house on the 4th of July to watch the fireworks when you lived near the park. Your parents were such nice people and I have fond memories of those times. Don’t know if you remember me. I was Carol Ann Liberti then and my parents were Dot and Vinnie Liberti. We lived two doors down from your aunt and uncle. Sad to think everyone is gone now, but we still have our cherished memories. God bless.

Send your condolences.
