Dear Bill and family,
I will always remember Win's beautiful
smile and how she chuckled when she laughed. Peace be with you and may the love of the Lord continue to shine upon you.

To the Family of Winnie,

She will be sadly missed at our Rosary group in Bradenton Fl. Winnie was always so full of life and always a warm smile. I loved to tease her, and she would tease me right back. I met her and your Father in Publix when she was in a wheel chair, and I asked her if I could sit on her lap for a ride, and she laughed and said she would have to charge me. She is and always will have a special place in my heart. Winnie is now with Our Lord and Savior, and is smiling on all of you, as well as all her friends.

Love and Prayers
GOD Bless all of you

Dear Margie,
I'm so saddened to hear of your mother's passing. I only saw her a few times but I was so taken by her lively sparkling personality, humor, and "joie de vivre". My thoughts and prayers are with you, your Dad and your entire family. May you find comfort in the knowledge that she is in God's care and will always continue to be a part of your lives.
