My deepest sympathy and prayers and thoughts are with all of my family there. I have wonderful memories of my aunt Rosie who was also my godmother. I remember my last visit with her we laughed. I used to love to make her laugh, she would look at me and laugh and nod her head and say " I don't know who you take after." It made me feel good that I could make her laugh. Aunt Rosie, I love you and will miss you and all the stories you told about me when I was little. Rest in Jesus arms till we meet again.

Becky, Ginny, Manny, Peter and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I remember your mother as a kind, warm and friendly person who always had a smile. Even years later, if I'd see her she'd always remember me and always ask me how my family was doing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Lenny Calandra, Jr.
