Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Sherri, Pete and Jim, We were sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing.
    She was such an amazing and beautiful person. We are thinking of you and your families with love and prayers.

  2. I apologize for this very late message. And, with technology, you may receive this message couple of times. I just wanted to share my condolences to the entire family. I met Aunt Marge and your dad when I was very young and visited with them with my grandparents (Frank and Doraine Cervi). I remember the house… and the dog. But most of all I remember the hospitality they shared. Also, I remember Aunt Marge the last few years and admired her for both her knowledge and beauty. She was a very special person. I wish peace to everyone in the family.
