Dear Ed and Eileen: It was a privilege to know Emma. She just radiated a kindness and joy that was an inspiration to all around her. She loved you beyond measure, and you were really there for her. Some day I think you’ll hear the words, .well done my good and faithful servants.. You were exemplary caregivers. God bless and comfort you both. Fondly, Helen Brown
Dear Edward Our deepest sympathy to you in your loss. Your mother was a dear friend to the Loos Family, (Helene, Al & Karen Loos Acampora). Our prayers are with you.
ED….My thoughts and prayers are with you old friend…may good bless
My deepest sympathies are with you at this time. When I was first married I lived at 164 Helen Street in a three family house with Max and Emma Hoefer–wonderful people. I am very curious–in 1989, my husband, Bob Stiles, was a patient at St. Raphael’s Hospital for five months when he was dying of cancer. He had a wonderful nurse, Eileen Holt, who took such good care of him. Would this be the same Eileen Holt? Again my deepest sympathies. Marilyn Stiles
