To Aldea's family -

We only met Aldea within the last year (+/-), but instantly fell in love with her warm & beautiful personality! Of course, after seeing two of her lovely "family" calendars and hearing about each person in the photos, I could just feel the LOVE that she brought to and had for each one of you! I would say a LOVE that she brought to so many others as well!

When I look at Aldea's beautiful photo that the family posted, I see that infectious smile that lights up a room! And then as you get to know her, it gets even better!

Our sincere condolences and love to each of you!

To all of Aldea family members
Please accept my condolences for Aldea’s loss. She spoke lovingly of her family and, at each visit, never failed to show me pictures in her album. She was so proud. We met when I was assigned to her table in the dining room. I will miss her.

I feel like I have lost not only my 2nd mom, but also a good friend. We met when I was just a teenager(CYO days) , we worked together for several years and I became a member of the family. Paul and I contributed to your multitude of grandchildren and even after his death we remained friends all these years.

Since living in Florida full time since last year, I have missed our weekly iced coffee and canasta games and occasional jigsaw puzzle. Your daughters have kept me updated on a regular basis and I have enjoyed sending you occasional greeting cards with updates from me. Your passing is a great loss to the family and you will always be in my prayers.

Now make your puzzles up in heaven and find a new canasta game..

Love Marian
