Dear AJ, Mark, Gia, Angelo and family,

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. We loved seeing her when we would go to Pittston visiting family and friends. She was the nicest person I have ever met. Always willing and ready to help in any way that she could. She will be missed by many. Hugs and prayers to all of you.

There is no doubt that she is reunited with Butchie who was the love of her life.

Your cousins from Allentown,

David, Maria Rose and family.

Your mom’s legacy lives on in you. I'm so sorry that you've lost someone who you and your family loved so much. I know you made your mother so proud; I'm sorry her light is gone from your life and so sorry about the hurt in all your hearts.
