  1. Walter, Please accept my deepest sympathies on the passing of your mother. Neil G. Walsh, Madonna ’84

  2. DEAR FR WALTER AND FAMILY, DO KNOW MY PRAYERS AND SINCERE SYMPATHY ARE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR THE WORLDLY LOSS OF YOUR BELOVED MOTHER. WE ANNOUNCED HER NAME AT OUR NOON MASS AT FRANCISCAN U. FOR THE REPOSE OF HER SOUL AND FOR THE CONSOLATION OF HERFAMILY.. MAY THESE QUOTES GIVE YOU SOME CONSOLATION: ” DEATH IS THE GOLDEN KEY THAT OPENS THE PALACE OF ETERNITY” -MILTON- “DEATH AND LOVE ARE THE TWO WINGS THAT BEAR THE GOOD MAN-WOMAN TO HEAVEN” MICHEL ANGELO

  3. My deepest sympathies are with the Jagela family. I’ve know how good Mrs. Jagela was to her family. She was a sweet, loving and caring mother and wife. I loved hearing her voice on the phone whenever I would call to say hi or when trying to locate Walter. I always liked receiving her Christmas cards since they brought a smile to my face. I wish I could be there in person, but pls know I’ll be there in spirit. Knowing her, she’s probably putting in a good word for us with our Lord. We all are going to miss her a lot. Edgar

  4. Dear Jagela Family, I was shocked and saddened when my parents called me to inform me of your profound loss. Your mother was such a remarkable woman and I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I cannot begin to imagine how her death has affected your father, she cared for him as no other could. Dr. Ed, Fr. Walt and Mr. Michael, know that you are and shall remain in my constant prayers. I regret that work commitments and distance will keep me from personally being with you for the Funeral Liturgy, nonetheless, I will be present in prayerful spirit. Fondly, Stas Tuchalski
