    John, Bill, Deb and Harry, So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have so many fond memories of growing up in the neighborhood. I do remember the "wiffle ball" bat that your cousin Von mentioned in his post. She kept all of us Kaufmann Avenue kids in line. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. You have our deepest sympathy.... Dennis & Amy Kenavey

    I was blessed to have Mom as my mother in law for over 50 years. She brought joy and love to all. She created beautiful memories for our family. She will live in my heart forever.
