    Hi Jimmy,

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. We all had a lot of fun, many years ago, when your parents lived in our house and next door on Bromley Ave in Scranton.

    Prayers, Alice

    James,so sorry about your Mom. Wilva has been a dear friend of mine for decades.She and your Dad were patients of my late husband, who was also very fond of them. She was a kind and caring woman, and I will miss her terribly. My deepest sympathies to the family.

    Dear James Lydon and family; I have been thinking of my dear friend, Wilva, and found this obituary just now and wish to express my dearest condolences on your loss. I was Wilva’s helper and kept house for her whilst she lived on Dartmouth Street in West Scranton and became good friends. I was unable to contact her after helping her pack to move to the Summit. I will always remember her last year’s fondly, right after the death of her beloved husband Jack, whom I had the pleasure of meeting while he was still undergoing dialysis. Wilva took it hard, but I was there when she needed me. With loving Sincerety,
    Mariann K. Salerno
