 I am thankful she suffered so little the day she "went home." One day of "I'm sick," is all she had to endure. We all did the best we could to make sure she was happy and comfortable, when in reality, she brought happiness and comfort to us. I will treasure the extra time I had to spend with her, for the rest of my life and I have all of you, Pam, Bonnie and Jim, to thank for that opportunity. I will never forget it. Mom and Dad did raise at least three wonderful children and I love you all!

I will live the rest of my life remembering all of our times together. Please don't stop telling me the stories of those times I don't remember. Mother is now with Father, as it was always meant to be.

With all my love,
Charles Stephen Kingsborough


 Dear Jim, Pam and Bonnie, We were so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. We didn't know her well, but we enjoyed seeing her sit on the porch, simply enjoying life. May she rest in peace.

Jimmy and Luca (118 Parker St.)


 My Deepest Sympathy to the entire Kingsborough family. What a beautiful service for a beautiful person. What a legacy she leaves behind. May God grant you all with comfort, peace and wonderful memories.
