I know how much respect you had for your Father-In-Law. You spoke of him often and always had the highest praise for him and his accomplishments.
Brent and Justin,

Dear Family, Our deepest sympathy to you. Larry (Feirick) worked with Ned for many years at PPL in the Right-of-Way Department, and we always enjoyed getting together at PPL functions and seeing Ned and Ruth. I remember the trips they would go on. We just received a Christmas Card from Dad and he always thanked us for keeping in touch with him. Now we won’t get any more cards!!! Oh my….my husband was very upset when he saw that Ned passed away. Larry worked with him, Jim Brittan, and Bud Mull (who we just saw at a PennLanco Banquet on Sat.). I believe he’s 91 yrs. old. It’s hard to see a part of our past go away. I can just hear he and Ruth in heaven….she telling him what to do, and he goodnaturedly doing it. Blessings to you and your family as I know you have many good memories of Ruth and Ned.
Pat (and Larry) Feirick
We go way back to golf at Conestoga Country Club and continuing warm greetings at St. Leo The Great Church. Always a pleasure
