In Memory


In loving memory of Beverly I. Smith, March 4, 1929, to February 19, 2012:

Mother, you loved, cared for and taught me throughout my life. When I was sick, you cared for me and prayed that I would get well. You always encouraged and believed in me as I attempted new things. Then, I watched as you grew old, lost Dad, and your body slowly betrayed you, but you never stopped showing me what a wonderful mother you were. Mom, I miss you.

Bill and family


Happy birthday to our loving mother, Frieda “Buterbaugh” Mannetti, February 26, 1943, to January 2, 2013:

If Roses Grow In Heaven

If roses grow in heaven,

Lord please pick a bunch for me

Place them in my mother’s arms

And tell her they’re from me

Tell her I love and miss her

And when she turns to smile

Place a kiss upon her cheek

And hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy

I do it every day

But there’s an ache within my heart

That will never go away.

Love you and miss you,
