To all my cousins: Ro, Lee, Kathy, Sue and to Mary Jane, Katy, Delores, Gene and Leo,

I can't express enough how sorry I am at the loss of your Mom and sister. Louise was the sweetest Godmother and cousin and made a huge impact on my life. So many memories were made that I will keep forever in my heart.

Please know that I am thinking of all of you.

Love Always,

Mrs. V and her husband Dick were so gracious and always treated me and my family like family. I remember while in college, going to their house to pick up 2 Sabres txs they gave us; 2 seats in the Reds! I couldn’t believe that I didn’t have to sit in the Oranges!! It was such a nice gesture, I’ll never forget it.

My condolences Lee to you and your family.

Dear Cousins,

My family has so many wonderful memories of celebrations at your house where your mom greeted us with her beautiful smile and ready laugh, and fed us until we could burst. She radiated warmth and love. To be with her was to be happy. I will miss her, but I know she is at peace.

Love, Wendy

To Louise's family: Louise was one of the first persons at St. Greg's whose name we actually knew. For many months, we had shared a pew at the 9:30 mass, until one day we decided we needed to know her name. She was always so gracious to both of us, a truly lovely lady in all ways. Since the time she was no longer at St. Greg's, she has been on my daily prayer list; and in fact, I was thinking of her this morning just before I saw the notice in the paper. May it comfort all of you to know she is in God's hands now and is at peace with her husband and son. Deepest sympathy to you in your loss. Sincerely, Lorraine Rybak (and husband Dan)
