I have many happy memories of Jack and Florence Bonorato, in-laws of my daughter, Christine Moore Bonorato. Jack was a delightful family-oriented man, very sweet and thoughtful. Florance was an upbeat, lovely lady and a great cook. I always enjoyed a visit with them whenever my Christine and Robert came to town for a visit. They were good people and I felt fortunate to have known them. I extend my deepest sympathy to the Bonorato family.

My dearest friends, wipe your tears of sadness away, for I have not left you. I live forever in your memory, and my light will always shine by the love in your hearts. Celebrate my life, but do not dwell on my passing. The end to life's calling was yet the beginning of my voyage as the angels carried me home to heaven. So if you are sorrowful, close your eyes and remember we will meet again someday on our continued journey.
