I'm so sorry for your loss.  I always remember all the times at your house on Shirley Lane.  Playing truth or dare when we slept over in your basement and the balloon people we made and took pictures of in your Mom's car.
Take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jody (DiRienzo) Hoffman
Patti and family,

Michael, I am truly sorry for the loss of your mom.  I will always remember her for her silver-fox hair and her laugh.  The last time I saw her was on our deck for "grandpa's" birthday.  She was as quick as he with the quips and the digs..like Gracie and Allen.  She was a joy, Michael, and she will be missed.

I love you Michael, Julie
With sad heart I heard of Gail's passing.  I was looking forward to seeing her again when she came back to Kings Point.  She was a great lady.
