  1. Michelle and Lisa, We just wanted to say how sorry we are for the loss of your mom. We all shared a difficult time and we just wanted to wish you peace in the coming days. Sally and Rosemary Pat’s daughters

  2. We would like to say sorry for your loss. It was nice that Angela was able to stay at my house when she needed to and help my mom while I was getting ready for my deployment to Iraq. Ben would like to say that he thinks that Angela is riding her little red car to heaven and he is not sure how large heaven is but, that the car is little so she should be fine. Love Cassandra, Jerome, and Benjamin. I hope Angela was able to see the photos of Ben I had sent.

  3. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Chrissy Donofrio Torres
