  1. For 39 years we were privileged to call you “our neighbor and friend down the hill”. There are no better neighbors – there are no better people. You will be missed!

  2. We were saddened to hear about your mother and father’s passing.Your mother and my mother ( Leah Kiesling ) developed a long lasting friendship through their years of working at Ellwood City Savings and Loan. Also, my father caught his largest muskie from your father’s boat in Canada. He said he would never have landed it without your father’s boating skills. Our prayers are with you and your family.
    With sympathy,
    Terry ( Big Ter ) and Karen Kiesling

  3. Jon: So sorry to hear of your parents passing. They are together continuing their adventures as they did here on earth. May god comfort you in the days ahead. The road seems rough now but time and memories will heal.

    Take care,
    Marylee Huston
