My grandparents Ralph & Juanita Fazio lived across the street from the Underwoods. When my brother & I were little we always saw Ms Virginia & Mr Underwood around the house when we'd come up to visit Grandma & Papa. They would always get excited to see us! As we got older & Papa moved down south w us we didn't get to see them as much. But when I was there about 3 years ago I talked to Mr Underwood. He was cutting his grass. He kept such an amazing lawn! I'm praying for the family & may GOD bring you comfort!

My Dad and Jr. (which is what Daddy called him) carpooled together at the Alloy plant. Your Dad was always so nice to me and I saw him at the store one day and he told me that the day before my Dad died, Jr. had to drive home from work (he drove our car) because Daddy was too weak to drive. I never knew that (I was twelve when Daddy died and I'm sure a lot of information was not told to me) and I appreciated Jr. telling me that story. Your Dad and your Mom were always so nice to me and I always enjoyed seeing them. I'm sorry for your loss.
