  2. Mark & Barb,
    I read about your mom in the Democrat this morning, online, as I am living and working in Myrtle Beach SC right now. My daughter & husband and their 3 children live here and my son goes to Coastal Carolina University here.
    It really hit home with me this morning when I read it. I lost my mom recently in February. We had the service at Holy Cross also. I can remember your mom so well and she was always there. She seemed to never change over the years. I rememeber her mostly from church and when we all were in grammer school. My heart goes out to you, Chris and John as well as my prayers. The Lord is good. He will help you and heal you.
    Take care,
    Lisa

  3. Mark, John, Chris: We were so sadden to
    hear of the loss of your Mom. She was
    such a lovely lady. When I was very
    young I remember your Mom and Dad
    stopping during the Christmas Holidays
    at our home and bringing me and my sibblings a gift which we appreciated so
    much. Your Mom was always so kind and
    thoughtful to everyone. We send our
    prayers and sympathy to you and your
    family. Take care, Dick and Joanne

  5. To the Metzer Family: My condolences to all of you. I worked in the International Div. at Kodak Office when your dad, Jack, was there working for, who else, Lou Baker. I met your mom on a few occasions and was impressed with her friendliness and sense of humor.
    Some of us in the Latin American area went to a gathering at your home on Beach Ave. and had a wonderful time and the last time I saw Blance was whenyour dad passed away and the wake was at the Latta Road house.

    Sincere sympathy to all from Pat O’Shea
