Condolence & Memory Journal

Bill,Noreen, Lori's family, and Leslie's family,

So many good thoughts of Mr. DeRose, him and your mom dancing at Lori's wedding, what a beautiful sight. His playing the accordian at my kids Communion parties. Then being at your home, Bill, for those fun filled movie nights, He was such a fun loving person.

Love, peace and prayers for him and all of you.

The Hufnagel family,
Mary, Kristen and Jason, Jimmy, Phillip and Nick
