    My deepest condolences to you and your family during this time. Your mother was an amazing woman, and she will truly be missed. Her kindness was contagious, and her memory will live on forever. She was caring and always a pleasure to have known. I love how she always shows off her family, her pets, and life itself; besides all of that, she opens her heart, home, and family to my father. We will be forever grateful for making my dad truly happy. You will always remain in our hearts. <3

    When I saw your pic and read the news I became broken hearted. I’ve known you as a childhood friend in the Bronx where we went to the same school and used to play kickball and other sports. Then later on when I moved away I didn’t see you for some years. Throughot the years we kept running into each other again and again….ln Facebook, I used to put “like” to your flower photos collection….just loved them all and admired the way you handled your retirement. Eventhough we didn’t have continuous communications I always felt that we had a lifetime friendship. May you have eternal peace. Thank you for your many years of friendship.
