Add My Condolences

I met Marene and her husband, Matthew, about 46 years ago, when they came to me to find them a home, in the greater Pottstown area. After searching for a few months, they settled on a newly constructed house in Lower Pottsgrove Township to raise their family. Time just flew by, as it just doesn’t seem to be that long ago! Marene and Matthew were just the nicest couple, very cordial, and always welcoming. My sincerest sympathies go out to you Matt, Michael, Maria, Madeline and all of your families. GOD bless you all.
