Alice, Guido, Ronnie, and families:
My deepest sympathy….having grown up living next to your parents, I am sharing in your grief. I hope it is of some slight comfort to know that others are sharing the burden of your loss.

Your mom and dad are finally together again for eternity…..and I know they are smiling down on all of us. Remembering them both today.

Within the past few months I met Mrs. Riccadonna at Silver Creek Terrace. What a lovely lady. My sympathy goes out to her family as I’m sure she will be sadly missed.

To the Riccadonna Family,
I got to know Mabel when she was such a good friend to my Mother. We often visited her whenever we came to the area. She was always so interested in our children and our grandchildren. She is truly a model person to follow.
