Greetings, on behalf of my sister Pam and two brothers Reggie and Piero I would like to thank each and every one of our families and friends for your love, prayers and support. This is just a time in our lives that you just cherish every day with your families and realize how lucky we are. She really wanted to be with Dad, she missed him dearly and we know she's at peace in her heart.

Please join us for her if you can in these crazy times, it's really the best we can do for her right now. With all my love and families love THANK YOU very, very much.

Dear family, you mom was always a sweetheart to me. She went out of her way to say hello from across the room and not just with a wave. I always loved her and thought she was so full of love and life. I told Paul over the years how special she was. We weren’t close as in seeing each other but she left a kind memory when you did see her and your father at Italian functions. God bless your family. She will be remembered always. Love.

Please accept our sincere condolences for your entire family. Your Mother was the sweetest, most lovely person that I had the pleasure to know. She will be missed terribly by everyone. I know she is one angel that got her wings immediately upon her arrival to Heavens gate.

Nonna,

You are the best example of patience and kindness. I’ll always cherish the summers in Italy, the Christmases in your basement, Halloween night at your house, and all the little moments in between. Thank you for being you. I love you!

Mrs. De Luca was the most amazing women I have ever met, she was kind to everybody and had so much love to give. They raised a beautiful, respectful family who are also amazing people. Mrs. De Luca is a one of a kind person and I truly believe she was my angel from the very beginning, I looked forward to Thursday night pasta night and Friday nights at the club so that I could see her and Oliver my two favorite people. She always made me smile and she made me feel so loved, it was like I was part of her family, like I was one of her granddaughters and that feeling was the greatest feeling ever. So I am so very sorry for your lose and you are forever in my heart I love you so much Mrs. De Luca, you and your family.

I first met Almerinda around 2001 soon after elected as Salem Township Supervisor. The DeLuca construction company facility was located nearby the Township Hall. I first knew a little about the DeLuca Company in 1956 after I returned home from Army Service and found their wholesale orders to the Roperti Turkey farm helped the turkey farm expand and become successful.
When I met Almerinda, I was interested in trying to get some work done for the township in building a Village Green Park and gazebo next door to the the township office to preserve the rural atmosphere of the township. There was an old house on the premises that had to be removed.
I few day later I saw the old house and basement walls being dug up, and to my surprise, it was Reggie DeLuca operating the digger. Then, on his own, he had the company lay the foundation and sidewalks to the gazebo. He handled other construction that was needed to finish the park.
When speaking to Almerinda or Reggie about financial payments, i explained I had sufficient donations from other businesses and residents to pay for some of their work, they refused any payments.
When elected to Township Supervisor I was able to convince Reggie to run for Trustee since I knew his experience in construction work would be helpful to the township. He is still a member of the elected township board.
During the years I have known Reggie and his wife Linda, we have had many visits. One was during their daughter's 18th birthday when I sat with some of the friends and relatives, and conversation was in Italian in a dialect I could understand. It reminded me of my Mother and Father who emigrated from Italy in the 20's when we had friends (pi'zanos) over for visits. The memories were so great, it brings tears each time I think of it.
I could go on, knowing Reggie and Linda and how they have helped make my life worthwhile living since the loss of my wife 25 years ago.

Grandma, I can’t even begin to describe how much I miss you. I miss hearing your voice, feeling your hugs and walking next door to have a glass of wine and chit chat with you. You were so kind, understanding and loved unconditionally. You are truly an angel to anyone you’ve met throughout your life. I couldn’t be more grateful for the big, beautiful family you, with Grandpa, raised and the values you instilled in all of us. Nothing made you happier than simply being with your family. We all find comfort knowing you are now reunited with Grandpa watching over us from above.

Your generous heart, I will always carry it in my heart. I love you so much 💕

Grandma, I am still in shock. You were taken too fast and too soon, just like Grandpa. But I find comfort in knowing you are back with him watching down on this big, beautiful family you created. I miss you so much- your endless love, selfless acts, and never-ending cooking. I will miss our Fridays at the Club and big family dinners at your house. I will cherish those memories forever. Give Grandpa the biggest hug for us! I love you ❤️
