Tonawanda News — Thanks for the correction, Peter, the answer ends up 784 miles — got that right, anyway.
A reader of this column called to say she has hundreds of hard cover books that she would like to give to an organization or facility that could use them. Some of the authors she noted are James Patterson, Nora Roberts and “a lot of Danielle Steele.” If you know of a place that would use the books, call me at the News, 693-1000, ext. 4110, or email me at email@example.com.
Louis Pane died this past week. He was a person who enjoyed life and shared his humor and hard work ethic with everyone. As owner of Pane Heating and Cooling, he ran a company dedicated to doing excellent work and giving tremendous service at an honest price. His wife, Caroline, ran the cafeteria at St. Francis School for many years and taught my kids how to eat good food. (I can honestly say I never packed a lunch for them.) Whenever they come over for a spaghetti dinner, the comment is, “No offense, mom. But the best spaghetti sauce was the one Mrs. Pane made.” But back to Louie. He gave his all to the community through a 50-year membership in the K of C, 65 years at Live Hose Fire Company and as a member of the Renaissance Club. He served for five years in the Coast Guard during WWII and members of the American Legion Post 264 gave a wonderful memorial service at his wake. But above all this, he was a person of integrity, full of fun and love for his community and family. Condolences to all.
