  1. Dom, Dino and Maria: I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I remember her from my mom & her being friends ‘way back in the day’. I always thought she was such a lovely lady. My dad & sister have both passed, but mom is still here – doing okay; just turned 86. I truly feel your pain; I wish I could say something that would make it better. We just learn to adjust and live on, don’t we? Again, I’m so sorry and will keep you and your families in my prayers.

  2. So very sorry to learn of your moms passing. I have such great memories of visits as a child when mom and dad would bring us up. Dad (Irish) Hugh passed 21 years and mom (Bernadine) passed Feb. 4th. Much love to all of you. As a mighty ship sits quietly after a perfect storm, the mast remains, the sails are gone. Only your heart knows the depth of your mothers’ love. Many prayers to each of you now, and for all of your days.
