We are deeply saddened and very sorry to hear about the passing of your sister, Rose. Unfortunately we are unable to attend the mass/viewing since we are unable to drive.
She was a person dedicated to caring and helping others, active in many organizations, and volunteering her time and effort to the welfare of the city.
It was always a pleasure to be in her presence.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Judge Albert and Orpha Stallone
