Dear John and Family,
My deepest condolences to all of you. I am so very sorry that I cannot extend my thoughts in person.
What wonderful memories I have of Stephanie. Great dental parties, meetings of the Women's Dental Guild and fun ski trips with super friends. So many of us have been blessed with long
lives and special families. Life has been good to us.
Since Ron passed on to his Heavenly Home at the end of February, he will be able to welcome Stephanie and together recall our great times together !
My love and prayers go out to all of you at this difficult time. May the love and support of friends help.

Dear Lucchese Family,

With sincerest condolences on the loss of your beloved. Periodically, my path has crossed with yours through the years. Living across the street, I have happy memories with the Lucceheses. I saw all of you in Canada on her 50th Wedding Anniversary and what a beautiful family! Dying is a new way of living with Christ-may she rest in peace.

It's been over 30 years since I saw you Mrs. L. but I will always remember your kind warm heart when I would hang at your house with Phil during our high school years.
Your smile always made me feel welcome along with the fantastic food that you would put out for us, I never left your house hungry.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. L., Phil and the rest of the siblings
long lost friend

I have loved Mrs. Lucchese most of my life. I have 2 memories that are so vivid, even many years later. I hope the Lucchese family will smile when they read them. My first memory, is pushing Mrs. L through a old school house window. There was a table she wanted a better look at. If I remember correctly, she has that table. Every time we pass that building, our family talks about that and laughs. My second memory, I am sure John Jr. will remember, was the look on her face when she saw Johnny’s face the first time after he fell off a bike. He was riding (as we all were) a bike without a chain, down Slusher Hill Rd. He forgot to steer the bike onto the grass. He was going so fast, it was to late. I am not sure if he heard us screaming to dump in the grass. He decided to use his face on the dirt road to stop himself. Our lives are full of memories with the Lucchese family. God Bless the entire family and know I grieve a long with you. Cheryl Kacz Viola
