Debbie, Kris, Jeff, Greg, Shawn My deepest sympathy to you at the passing of your dad. I will always remember both your mom and dad with a smile on my face as they were the hip young parents on the street. Two of my fondest memories are when they had the motorcycles and off the two of them went down the street - so cool. And one especially of your dad was when he came to the rescue as I was in a battle on the Jones' front lawn with another neighborhood girl. Although I was winning, I wasn't proud of my actions and was glad he intervened. Those years on Marion Street were some of the best times and I will miss your parents as I miss mine. All my love to your families. Maria(Pappas)Vereb

I was sad to hear Mike had passed away. Mike was well liked at National Cash Register and was a fellow Marine. He now goes on to his last duty station as a Marine. To guard the Gates of Heaven.
