Aline and David and family,
I wanted you to know how sorry I am for your Mom's passing. I certainly know of the sorrow your feeling from this. She is now with the Lord as all the others who passed away. I'm here for you always. God Bless You.

Heaven gained another angel after 102 years one heck of a run for such a beautiful person. There are a select few people in our life that have such an impact on ones life and my grandmother was one of those.
I can honesty say that 99.99 percent of the good parts of me come directly from her guidance, understanding,Morales,and ability for forgiveness was second to none. No matter what problems I or the hundreds of other people ever had in life she would always listen and is the only person I ever witnessed had the absolute power to change the way you were thinking and how you saw what the problem was, your mind would be completely different after she conversation always followed by a prayer.
My grandmother and grandfather instilled so much of the family values that have made such amazing role models and honestly a family legacy that hopefully will last for generations to come.
Some of the greatest years and memories of my life will always be cherished staying with them on Petersen mountain with the family get togethers at the Ridge, church at St Rochus, picnics with the Nitches and just being a little boy growing up on that mountain. (Even if I was so far away I couldn't hear the bell which was most of the time sorry grandma).
You raised some of the best people in the world and I thank you for that. You will truly be missed and remembered by all who have known you. You truly made such a difference in so many life's. Thank you and goodbye for now but I will see you again your loving and grateful grandson. (PS. You may be my best hope for a little smooth talking with Lord getting through those gates so kinda butter him up a little for me I know you can. I love you so much grandma).

Mrs. DeYot was my 5th grade teacher at West End Catholic. I will always remember, and cherish her. She taught me to believe in myself, no matter what. She loved every child she taught, and had the ability to make every child know how special they were. Mrs. DeYot will always hold a special place in my heart. Condolences to her friends and family. Rest In Peace, sweet lady.
