We were so sorry to hear of your lovely mother’s passing. She was such a sweet lady. Loved talking to her. Loved having you girls sitting on our front porch playing with your barbies with our Christine. My Chris sends her sympathy also.

Theresa, Christine and Joseph,
I was so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I don’t know if you remember me ... I lived on the corner of Wayne and Garrison when you were children. I used to babysit for you occasionally. I have fond memories of your family and fun times that we shared. Please know that I am praying for you and your families. May God fill your hearts with His peace and all the precious memories that you have.

Theresa, Christine and family,

I have fond memories of us with your mom at your house after school at SJCC. She always smiled and made me feel special because she genuinely cared. I lost my dad in May, but remembering our most cherished memories has helped me to cope with the immense loss. I hope you too may find comfort in your most cherished memories and know that she is at peace in heaven and will always be with you in your hearts.

I have so many beautiful memories of Priscilla and her daughters. She was a wonderful lady and always special to talk with. Her daughters were best friends in high school with my two oldest daughters. You have my deepest sympathy and prayers.

Someone once told me and I truly believe it, The loved one is gone but her love lives on forever. She is with you and always will be. Love you always and forever,
