To the Family of Orilia ,
We used to have so much fun when we got together, Unfortunately the loss of loved ones, time and distance has gotten in the way of continuing those traditions but we do have our memories I’m sure they will be getting together and arguing about the silliest things ❤️ We are so very sorry for your loss lots of prayers for your family.
Love
Lidia & Ugo

Dearest Ma,
I definitely have a void in my heart. I was privileged and honored to be by your side during your weakest moments but the ultimate was being there to care for you in your preparation to meet Jesus and your other loved ones. Ma, please continue to watch over all of us from heaven above. Love you and Rest In Peace!
Lou

Ma,
There are far too many memories flashing through my mind of the times we laughed and the times we’ve cried throughout the years to describe the impact of your loss. I was never a perfect child but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t have a perfect mom. I may not have had everything I wanted, but I had everything I needed. One thing you always let me know was that you loved me and now I pray that you knew how much I loved you. It took an instant to loss you and it will take the rest of my lifetime to miss you. I love you.

I meet Mrs. D’Onofrio at a wedding by chance. We started talking and knew that I worked with her “Lougina.” Though the years we would see each other at family doings.
One thing we really had in common was our faith. It wasn’t usual for me to give Lou a new Novena or Medal to take home to her Mom.
She would be thrilled. There is no doubt that Our Lord welcomed her and is at peace.
Mrs. D’Onofrio, I’m so sorry I didn’t get to see you Friday. I know your Beloved Nino was waiting for you.
You will always hold a special place in my heart
Love, Diane
