I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your family and the neighborhood that my
sisters and I grew up in. I remember your father as a kind and gentle man who
was always pleasant to all he met. He certainly was a devoted son and father.
Your book was a tremendous testimony to his love and devotion for your family.
I wish that I had know more about him back then.
Your Dad worked in my Uncle Al’s A & M Market. Albert Varnerin passed away on
February 12, 2010. His wife, Marion Varnerin, passed away on August 25th of
this year. I am the second daughter of John and Louise Varnerin. Both of my
parents worked at the store at different times and knew your father. They spoke
very highly of him. John was Al’s brother who passed away when we were
children. My sisters are Maureen Varnerin McKean, Ellen Varnerin, and Lisa
Varnerin. Lisa gave me your story and I passed it on to Ellen and Maureen.
Please let us know if you write another book, as it was a wonderful walk down
memory lane. Many thanks!
Ann Varnerin Barry
