Dear Larry, Maria and family - I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Angie passing away...she was always one of my favorite aunts. I used to love to go and visit her and your Dad (with my Mom and Dad) in her lovely, warm home in No. Providence. She was a wonderful, warm, giving soul who was a pleasure to be around. I know how hard it is to lose your mother...please know that my prayers are with you and her in heaven (I am sure). I just heard about her passing last night and am mortified that I did not attend her funeral. I will have a mass said for her.
Love and prayers, cousin Nancy

Dear Larry and Maria,

We just heard from Elizabeth Ann that your mother had passed away. I did not see it in the paper. We are so sorry for your loss. Whenever we saw each other we discussed our Italian heritage. We will keep her in our prayers

Dear Larry, Maria, and family:
Aunt Angie was the best. She always made me feel good about myself when I was growing up. Remember all the good times Larry. It's so hard to lose your mother. I know she's up there with my mother and father. They are probably all laughing and playing cards or something. Larry, it's been 10 years now since my mother (Aunt Adeline) and father (Uncle Tony) died. I think of them everyday. Take care of yourself.
Your cousin Steven Alves........
