  1. Dear Annette, Paul and Family, I was so saddened to hear of your Mother\’s passing away. My Father, Sal Cioffi was her landscaper for many years. He passed away last November. I met her when I used to go and help my Dad. She was a very thoughtful, kind and loving person. She always gave me prayers to keep my faith and wrote to me when I was in college. I know my Mom and Dad thought alot of her too. Myself and my family want to let you know, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Sincerely, Ann Marie Cioffi-Julian
