I am so sorry about the passing of Uncle Steve and Jeannette. Uncle Steve was such a good man and Uncle. So intelligent, always interesting to talk to, big believer in education, lover of sports. He was always a big fan and supporter during my football playing days, whether it was HS or Pop Warner. And I will always remember the years we would go to the Easton - Pburg game on thanksgiving with him, my son Tyler and my Dad. It was a great way to share time together. RIP Uncle Steve and God Bless. Love, Doug

Mr. Viglione was my guidance counselor at Shull Jr. High School. I remember him as a very nice and caring man. I also, knew his son in law Nick from the Bethlehem Post Office. My condolences to his entire family on your loss of both Father and Mother. May the Peace of Jesus Christ comfort you all at this time!
