  • My prayers are with the family at this time of “letting go.” Mom is in God’s loving arms and no longer in pain and able to reunite with those she loves who went before her. She leaves much behind her with those she loves until you all meet again. God bless you!

  • Le mie più sincere condoglianze alla sua famiglia

  • Josephine, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Miss Alessandra was kind and gracious. Though she will be missed, her spirit will always be with you.

  • I met her and Mr Trimarco when I worked at the bank at 10th & Oregon. I instantly loved them. They reminded me of my family and we’d talk Italian and became friends. They gave me a card when I got married and my baby was born. So sweet. They were wonderful people and I miss them both very much. Would love to have a family contact for them. Prayers for the repose of their souls.
