Birdie - you were a part of the SSVA family for so many years. We were with you as you as you learned, grew, laughed, cried, played, and struggled. You left us and moved on - but we kept you in view. With your passing, we so hope you have found peace. Much love to you and sincere sympathy to your family and friends. Andie and the gang at SSVA

There are so many wonderful memories. My favorite memory Birdie is the love and compassion you have for others. I met you at S.S.V.A which made an everlasting mark on my life as a true friend and CoWorker. As part of "The Crew." Your love for life, sports (go Steelers), friends and family always empowered you. This made a mark on me. Thank you for coming into my life. Forever you will be in my heart. Beth

Birdie. I will never forget you. You were always kind to me and I've always considered you a good friend. You left our hearts filled with good memories yet a hole that can never be filled. A hole that we all must learn to walk around as we carry on. You will be forever missed. The Crew will carry on your memories. You are free now.

Dear Birdie,

You will truly be missed.

The Crew will not be the same. You have touched our lives and now you live in our hearts. We hope that you will keep your eye on us from above. You have a big heart and a sweet soul. What I remember most about you is that you never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Very few people can say that. You lived your life your way, to the fullest and on your own terms.

It was a pleasure knowing you and calling you my friend.

There is a special place in a lot of hearts for you.

With love,
