My condolences to Edie's family. I worked with her at the former Keystone Distribution Company. She was a lovely lady with a dry wit and great sense of humor. May her star shine brightly in the heavens.

Please accept my sincerest condolences. I remember your parents fondly, especially your Mother, and would like you to know that I always enjoyed being around them. We had some good times on North Queen. They are some of my fondest memories.

The Hanlon's were my neighbors when we lived at the Reynolds' home on North Queen Street. You'll never meet a more wonderful couple then Edie and Beaven "Pat". My condolences to the families.
