Was sorry to read about your mother in todays paper. But it’s good to know that you three are still around
“alive and kicking”!!! Often think about old friends…where they are and how they’re doing.
We were so sorry to hear of Elsie’s passing. She was an elegant woman and friendly neighbour. Thinking of you at this time and hoping your sorrow will be lessened by happy memories.
Joe, Grace, Mariangela, Joanne and family
R.I.P. Mom – you were the best Mom in the world. I will miss you but I know that you are finally at peace
and with Papa. You will always be in my thoughts.
Dear Josie, I was sorry to read that your Grandmother has died. You are very lucky to have had her in your life for such a long time. She will be missed.
Dear Lola and Josie and family,
