In loving momoriy of Blanche Naffziger who passed away January 7, 1999, twenty years ago.

Nothing could be more beautiful than memories we have of you.

To us you were someone very special, God must have thought so too.

The Heavens now are brighter and memories grow more dear.

To our special mother, you’ll always be in our hearts forever.

Sadly missed by

The Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.

I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me.

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. 

The good life I lived while I was strong.

Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. 

Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.

Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.

Continue traditions, no matter how small.

Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.

Until the day comes we’re together again.”

It’s been 15 years, but we still miss you and think of you everyday.

Love, your family

You’ve been away for 30 years, which to me seems like only yesterday.

We all love and miss you.

I’ll continue to toot the horn when I go by the farm or East Nelson where you, Mom, Lou, Grandma & Grandpa are, now.

Love and sweet memories keep me going.

               Love, Sal, and the rest of your clan.

Today, like many other days

brings special thoughts of you

of happy times we shared

and caring things you used to do

And once more it’s a reminder

that life’s road is sometimes rough

because the time we shared

just wasn’t long enough

For you were someone special

who was thought so highly of

who’ll always be remembered

with affection, warmth and love

In Loving Memory

January 19, 1967 – October 25, 2017

Uncle Troy

The one who made me stronger

The one who made me believe in myself

The one who gave me faith

The one that made me laugh at the dumbest things

Had the most inside jokes and nicknames with

Who first taught me how to ski

The one that ate all the cookies

Gave the most hugs and love

Always cared for his nieces and nephews

Screamed at the TV

Watched movies all the time

Laughed at me for no reason

Was there for me at my worst

With me through everything

Gave me hope

Knew that I could do anything

Never let us down

Was the best uncle

Stayed with me no matter what

I wish he didn’t leave so soon

Wishing I could be skiing right now

I love him so much and miss him super bad

Why did he leave?

He will never be back to eat all the cookies and laugh at me the same

Nobody will replace my favorite uncle

I will cry every time I go back to Cannonsburg

Thanks for the best uncle

He was amazing

We all miss you

I hope you’re having fun up in heaven

It’s hard without you.

The Rose

by Bette Midler

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed

Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need

I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed

Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance

Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance

Its the one who won’t be taking, who cannot seem to give

And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long

And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow

Lies the seed, that with the sun’s love in the spring becomes the rose

Thinking of you often!

Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by
