While I only met Mrs. Cassady on several occasions, I remember her friendly personality. She was always kind to Mr. Cassady´s students. Sending thoughts and prayers to the entire family.

Donald, Karen, Charlie and Linda I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I have so many memories. Her homemade root beer and applesauce. The way she decorated your house at Christmas. And the amazing way she could sew, making Donald's suit coats with the flashy lining. She was a sweet and talented lady. You were blessed.

CD and Don. Sorry to hear of your moms passing. Had many memorable times with her when we would have our neighbor get togethers, and always ask Donna if she has talked to her. She was a great lady. May you keep her memories in your heart. And may she rest in the arms of the Lord

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Elwanda. I met her many years ago when I taught at Pen Argyl High School with T.E. She was a lovely and gracious lady. She and her beloved T.E. are together again singing "West Virginia." May she rest in peace.

Dear Don & Karen, Charlie & Linda: I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a sweet, lovely lady. Can't picture her without a smile on her face! I loved when she was tending to her yard or sitting on her porch on Robinson Ave., because we'd both stop what we were doing and enjoy each other's company! I still think of her when I pass that house. And, of course, I think of her whenever I make her Friendship Tea. She was a gem! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
