    This message is for all of the Weaver Children:
    I was so sorry to read about the loss of your Dad. I don’t know if any of the older boys remember me but when I was a small child, my parents, Lucy and Rebel and myself lived next door to you in an upper apartment. I was very young then. I was in the first grade at Sacred Heart of Jesus in Bethlehem. I remember coming out to see your Mom and Dad numerous times with my Mom.
    I just wanted to express my sincere sympathy to all of you and send my love and prayers.
    Would love to regain contact if you want to take a long walk down memory lane of the OLD DAYS.
    You are in my thought and prayers,
    Cindy Fitts aka Lucinda Fitts
