We will never forget your hospitality and good word you put in for us, that spring in 1989 in Philadelphia, with Cardone Industries. You and your husband didn't even know my family, and yet you put your credibility and reputation on the line by vouching for this newly arrived family from Romania. Because of you, we were able to get our first job in America, and thus start our new life on the right foot.
We always enjoyed seeing you and your family and consider ourselves fortunate to be in your circle of friends. May God rest your soul and grant strength to the family you left behind.

Love and prayers to your precious family!

I am so saddened that i could not hug you once more. I love you and loved your no nonsense always straight forward, but sweet and truthful actions and words. I will miss you so much. You received me and my family with so much warms in your house and fed us your delicious cooking. I wish I would have tell you more how much I appreciate it. Oh, and your green thumb...every plant you touched was happy and thriving...just see those fig bushes...
We shared the same maiden name and came from the same magic transilvanean places... i always felt that we must be related...
You left and leave behind an emptiness impossible to fill. You went to be with your husband and son and with God you served and loved all your life.
Rest in peace Cornelia, I love you and I'll miss you so much!
