Please accept sincere sympathy and condolences on the loss of Matriarch Mrs. Galluch.

Although I did not have the pleasure to be acquainted with her personally, I recently had the distinct honor and privilege to meet daughter Kathleen, who has befriended my 91 year old mother and provided amazing courtesy and Christ-like assistance.

Mrs. Galluch’s influence and inspiration to her daughter has been witnessed by all of us in the Carino family. She must have been an amazing lady!

Our very best wishes of prayerful support and comfort during this most difficult time.

May eternal rest within God’s presence be granted unto her,
Jim Carino
