  • Dear Chris, Mitch and Family,

    Chris I was so sorry to hear about Mom’s passing. When it’s quick it is tough on those remaining, but we know it is wonderful for her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    Fondly, Barbara

  • What can we say that has not be said about Grandma Virginia her whole life? She was an extremely warm and caring person who went out of her way to make everyone feel welcome and accepted when around her. I will always remember her running around after cooking a great meal for her family to make sure everyone had their fill and refused to eat before everyone was taken care of.

    She always had a genuine interest in my life as I grew older and never forgot to always send Katie and I a card for holidays/birthdays/anniversaries. She was loved by all who had the chance to know her and will be sorely missed.

  • For comfort during this difficult time please read from Gods own word the Holy Bible at Matthew 5:4,5 Psalms 25:16,17 also Psalms 83:18…

  • We will all miss our gentile Aunt Ginnie. She had a wonderful soul and was a beautiful lady as I remember growing up. Rest in peace!

    Tim, Eva, Christopher & Alanna D’Antonio

  • Mark I didn’t know your Mom but you always lit up when talking about her my thoughts and prayers go out to you and Danny and the rest of your family……….Vera
