Lorraine, Carolyn, Jeannie and family: I would like to express my deepest sympathy to you with the loss of your Mom/Grandma. She was truly an amazing women. I only knew her for a few years, but she became my cupid, by introducing me to Caryn. I soon became Grandma's Christopher and knew she was so happy for us. One of my fondest recollections was a surprise visit I made on Easter Monday. We talked for a few hours and I loved hearing about her many talents/stories and talking about her many cherished recipes for desserts. I always loved sampling her desserts such as the pineapple cheese cake, cookies and rhubarb squares... She was so proud of her family and it is an honor to be a part of it. With God's Love, Chris

Dearest Family, How can we ever thank you enough first for sharing your precious Joanna with us and then for the further blessing of sharing your beloved Genevieve with us? GG was the inspiration and role model for all the wonderful women of your family. What a treasured legacy of love she leaves. We feel very priviledged to have know her and to count ourselves as part of your extended family in California. With our thoughts & prayers, Angela & Ken

Dear Gene, May you rest in peace in the presence of God. Although, having known you for the past 21 years, you'll probably have St.Peter busy decorating the halls of Heaven:) You will be missed very much. The neighborhood won't be the same without you. I will personally miss your delicious Pierogis during holiday times, and the girls will miss coming over to look at all your wonderful crafts in your home. We know you're in a much better place right now, resting and praying for us. We love you and will miss you forever. With lots of love - your neighbors, The Vale Family - Tony, Helena, Elita & Leana
