Dear Joe and his entire family….

My heart goes out to you all at this sad time. It seems as if your family has had its share of sadness for the past few years. I wish I could take away the pain you all must be feeling, especially knowing how close your family is. You are very fortunate to have the memories so cherish them. Feel good in your heart for all the angles you have watching over you and know in your heart that they are ok now. Joe, I hope you are doing ok buddy, I wish I could give you a hug.

Love,

Tiffani Jo Suriano

Her warm smile and delightful spirit were always welcoming and she treated everyone the same. She had a passion for love, life, and family which could be observed by the way she interacted with people. She never made you feel as if you were a stranger and always had a hug and a kiss waiting for you. She was definitely a bit of “Heaven on Earth” and we are at a loss because she is no longer with us physically; however, because she was able to touch so many, she will always be with us in our hearts. I will miss you Aunt Virginia and all the qualities that you will take with you and just hope that we can all learn from you and live half of the life you did.

I am really saddened by the passing of my good friend Virginia, she was a lady that showed love to all she met As a resident at garden Park, she always had a smile on her face. I have known Virginia for a number of years for I met her while driving bus and can remember helping her across the street when she lived on seventh St. She has been missed here at the highrise during her illness and I am sure everyone here will always miss seeing her smile.

Your family will remain in my prayers and if you ever need anything feel free to call on me even if is only just to talk.

God Bless

I was so sorry to hear about your loss. I met Mrs. Thomas while attending Corpus Christi Church and my life has been blessed by having met her. Her smile and hugs were like no other. She was always so nice to my daughter and I. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I know the Angels are singing today because Mrs. Thomas is with them. God Bless Mary Nicoloan

Jenn & I send our sincere condolences in your time of loss. “Nanny” & “Mrs. Thomas”, as I called her for many years, was the most gracious lady. I remember going to her house with her grand-kids & trying to feed me even after I was stuffed to the gills; she always greeted you with a gleaming smile, a big hug & kiss.

Her kind heart will be dearly missed.

Sincerely & God Bless,

My father contacted me and told me of Nanny’s passing. I wish I could be there to give her one last kiss goodbye. I will always treasure my memories that I had. From her beautiful smile, wonderful laugh, and the mouth-watering aroma of Nanny cooking that filled the neighborhood I will always have those in my heart. I am a better person for knowing her.

I miss you all and my prayers are with you.

Love,

She will never be forgotten in my life. She was an angel in my eyes. Sorry I couldn’t be there in person, but yous are on my mind in your time of sorrow. My prayers are with you. God BLESS YOU ALL.

Tommy,

I am so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. No one that has ever been loved so dearly is ever truly departed. She lives in your hearts forever. I know all to recently what this is like. My mother, Gloria Contraguerro Bauduin, died on July 2, 2006. My prayers are with you and your family. My saving grace is knowing that heaven is a much better place, no pain and tears. I’m sure she is in the arms of God and experiencing the most wondrous joy our hearts could ever imagine. It is the missing them that hurts so much and will for some time. May God bless you and keep you in His care.

Sincerely,

Donna Wells Camposecco
