My sincerest condolences to all of the Metz family members of Jean Metz the girl I went to school with on Loveberry Hill. I also knew Oren. The Metz family did so much for me, Mom (Treas) and Aggie. I sat down and listed the family and I had a little trouble. I believe the list is correct: Jean, Cora (Turner), Mary (Brockleman) Maxine (Hefner). The Metz men who helped us do everything on the farm; Andy, Harley, Claude, George, Earl, June (Lash Jr.) and John. It has been a lot of years but I still remember the Metz family. Please let everyone know that Tommy White is still getting up every day; I will be 86 in November.

That I can recall I met her twice in my life. As a child my father (James Metz) would share stories of how sweet she was and how special she was to him. The last of a generation of Metz's to go home. Tell me Grandpa (your brother Andy) that I love him. Love to my extended West Virginia family!!
