Grayson & Charlotte McIntyre -
Pone, you will be sadly missed. Grayson has many fond memories and has not hesitated to share them with me. I remember our Memorial weekend visits to PA, visiting with you & Bill on Sat evenings, keeping you both up so very late. You always made early Sunday morning Mass. Good for you!! I remember the stories you told of the Conewaga Church, playing the organ. I proudly wear the pearl earrings. So very happy to have known you and proud to call you sister-in-law.

Mary, John and McIntyre family,
Losing your "Mama" is very hard, especially at this time of the year. Just remember all of the great memories and love that you have....those memories and the love and support of family and friends will help you through this time of adjustment.
With thoughts, love and prayers,

Knock, knock, knocking on Heaven's door.
Knock, knock, knocking..Pony is there for sure.
We know you are cured and the pain is gone,
You are with your family in Heaven and moving on.
We know you can't wait for Bill and the kids to be there
But we know you will as you were always so patient and fair.
We want to thank Bill for the endless love he has shown
For easing your pain while ignoring his own.
We have seen no greater love of a husband for his wife
Or resources shown, to extend her precious life.
The Bible says Angels at real.
The Bible teaches truth and Bill is the real deal.
So Pony enjoy your pain free home.
God is throwing a party, the greatest Heaven has ever known.
We will miss you.
With all our LOVE,
Bob and Sandy
