Dearest Ann Marie, Margie, Cathy,Gina and your families. We just want you to know how much we wanted to be there with you. Your mom was truly one of the finest, classiest, smartest and funniest ladies that could charm the birds out of the trees. Honestly we loved her so much. She was so good to keep in touch with us. She was always so sincere and genuinely interested in our lives and our children’s. We will miss her so much. We can only imagine the void that she has left in each of your lives. Thankfully we were able to watch the livestream of the funeral this am. It was a beautiful tribute to this wonderful woman. You girls showed such tremendous strength and pride in your mom. God bless you all! Love Roberta, Francis, Matthew and Jessie. ❤️ We promise to keep in touch and continue the Gillis legacy.

Rest assured she is up there still looking after all of you
I have fond memories of Kathleen as my senior when I was in training
She would unlock the door after curfew to let us in when we were late !!

Our sincere condolences to you all and your families. I have many memories of your Mom but most importantly I looked up to her with pride. When I did see her whether at a reunion or a funeral she was always so loving and kind to me.
It is unfortunate that we are not able to visit with you all and share our sympathies but we will be with you in spirit watching her service virtually.

Love to you all.
Sylvia, Amedeo and family.

Ann Marie, Margie, Kathy, Gina and Families,
Our sincere sympathies for the loss of your Mom. You were so blessed to have her in your life for so long, as a healthy, vibrant matriarch. Her laugh was infectious.! I have great memories of visiting all of you in New York in our childhood. I'm sure she was the one who convinced one of you girls to send me home with your beloved doll Mrs. Beasley. I was so excited to be leaving New York with her! To this day, I remember how happy I was.
Thinking of you all, wishing we could be there to celebrate her life with you. Although not in person, definitely there in spirit.

Suzanne, Dan and Family

Annmarie and family,

We are sure that the memory of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother will serve as an eternal blessing to all who were fortunate enough to have known and loved her.

Share the memories from everyone and then expand those memories for all of the family to share and revel in.

Count the days, months, years and decades you were lucky enough to have and realize this is a time to celebrate the memory of your loved one.

May the journey through the Valley of Shadows be an easy one for all of you.

Love from both of us.

Ardelle and Marty Kasdan
