  1. Dear Beth and Linda, Sorry I am unable to be with you today. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Joan

  2. Dear Linda and Beth, I was sad to learn that your Mom passed. She looked very pretty in the picture you chose for the paper. What a small world that you grew up practically in my husband’s backyard (the Carneys on Morgan Lane). Dave got such a kick out of talking to your parents, especially your Dad, at cousin Anthony and Christine DeCaprio’s wedding so many years ago – he still talks about it whenever we talk about family. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time and know that Mom is in a better place. Love, Wendy and Dave (George and Winnie D’Alessio’s youngest daughter.)
