Grace, Jimmy and Anita, Phyllis and I are saddened by James’ passing. We so enjoyed the times we were together. James and I had wonderful conversations and always found something to laugh about. I will also never forget what a blessing he was to my mom. I know she bugged him quite a bit at times, but James was always gracious and kind to her. Please know that we love you all and that our prayers for God’s comfort, strength and perfect peace are with you.

I have nothing but good memories about Mr. Mahone. He was a kind, generous person. And what a sense of humor. My life was enriched by living across the street from the Mahones all these years ago. I know your memories will sustain you through this difficult time. With much love, Miriam

To The Mahone Family, Michael and I would like to express our condolences along with our thoughts and prayers for your family at this difficult time. Mr. Mahone was a gentleman, a caring person and devout Christian and he will be missed. He was a hard worker and set a wonderful example for his children and grandchildren. All of you hold special places in our hearts for the kindness that you extended to our family when Mother passed away and for always keeping an eye out for our Father. Dad has often commented on how he misses the little talks that he had with Mr. Mahone . That this was one of the things he would miss about the being your neighbor along with the slice of cake Mrs. Mahone brought him. Once again you have our deepest sympathies and if we can be of help, please feel free to call on us. Susan, Michael & Adrienne Leccese
