Dear Annabel,

Just last week you crossed my mind and the memories of so many conversations when you were my favorite neighbor on Miller Street in Reading, PA. The neighborhood has changed from that time, it's not as personal any longer. We can never understand why we sometimes think about a person who was in our lives and we find out they are no longer with us here on earth and you have returned to our Holy Father and rejoined with other members of your family waiting for your return home. I will cherish your stories of the movies and dances you attended in downtown Reading when you were a young woman and never worried about returning home on the Southside of Reading late in the evening. Thank you for the special memories and calling me your friend. Love, Joan Furillo-DeBlasi

Heaven recently received one of the kindest and most wonderful person God has ever created. She was filled with love for all family, relatives and friends. The most wonderful mother any child could imagine or wish for. I was truly blessed to be one of her sons. She will be a true asset in Heaven, as she was on Earth . Thank you Mother for your love and everything. May God bless you on your journey. Love your son Michael .
