To you all
Your mother was a lovely lady. I first got to know her many years ago when i worked at " Angelo's" I've since come to know some of you children and know what a good job she and your Dad did raising a wonderful family. I'm sure this is a difficult time for all of you for no matter the circumstances, it's always a deep loss when you lose your mother.

My sincere sympathy

To the family of Mrs. O'brien - I never knew Mrs. O'brien. She was the grandmother of our precious daughter-in-law Michelle O'brien Gilman and I could tell by Michelle's love for her that she was a very special person. My prayers are with her family at this time of loss. John Henry & Darlene Taylor.

Words will never be able to describe what You meant to me. We had so many laughs and good times over Your house, and You let me into Your life as If I was one of Your own. My friendship with Your family and most importantly JR will last forever, as will Your legacy. Your sense of humor had me in stitches and your kindness made us all love You that much more! Eddie Haskell(ME) will never forget You.

Rest Easy
