Dear Tommy and family,
I was so very sorry to learn of Marie’s untimely passing. We grew up together on Monroe , and our families were very close.
Actually I always felt like we were “family”.
Our parents knew each other very well , and many of my memories and happiest days were spent at the Mastropasqua home. Marie’s memory will live on through all who knew her. My deepest sympathy and prayers to each of you. May she rest in peace.
