    Dear Mrs. Cerninka & Eddie,

    I am sorry to learn of Mr. Cerninka’s passing. I think of you all often … And the memories of growing up on McDermott Circle. Please know you are in my prayers and thoughts always.

    Dear Rose and Eddie – My last message may not have gone through. Again, I want to express my sorrow at learning of Ed’s passing.
    I have such fond memories of being with you folks and all our friends on McDermott Circle. I am only in touch now with Sylvia Burke and Marty Mathewson. I am 89 yrs old but am reasonably well. Brad and Steve live here in the next town on Cape Cod. Brad lost his wife when she was 52 yrs old. Paul lives in Oregon (not married). I am so thankful to have the boys near by. Our love to you both Sincerely, Jean Finch
