Memories & Candles
I was sad to learn of your Mom's passing. My mother's goal was to reach that 90 mark...I'm glad that you and your family were able to celebrate that milestone with her.
Your mother had a smile that would light up a room and warm the hearts of all. I'll always remember the sleepovers and pool times at your family's home...and particularly the welcome your mother gave to all.
She was quite a lady.

Holly & Lee, My sympathies on the passing of your Mom this week. I have very fond memories of our families relationship. Hot chocolate and fresh popped pop corn after skating on the pond and our family dinners stand out in my mind. I also remember how close a friendship your mother had with my mother. Again, my heart felt condolances on your loss. l

Dear Lee, Joe and Family:
Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your Mom. We are never ready for this, but she will be another one of your Guardian Angels watching over all of you.
You have alot to be thankful for that you had her as long as you did. I am sure you will be finding pennies from time to time and those will be from your mom just letting you know she is thinking of you. You are all in our prayers at this time. With deepest sympathy and love. Bob, Jo-Ann and J.R. Amantea

Holly and George, my deepest sympathies, your mom/ mother-in-law was a wondeful neighbor for many years. My parents missed her and Alfred dearly. She always treated me and the rest of the little brats in the neighborhood like gold...She will be remembered very fondly. Don

I met Ginni when I first contemplated moving to York, ME. My brother and I were checking out townhouses and Ginni came along. Turns out she had family back in NY near where I lived at that time. That was the start of a wonderful friendship.
I loved going to visit and chat with Ginni. She had terrific stories to tell and she was always ready to share them with anyone she met. I enjoyed looking at her family pictures

I have known Ginny since I was in kindergarten being friends with Lee and Holly. When we came home from school for lunch (many, many years ago,) she would have to count out the ravioli's to be sure Lee and I had the same amount or we would get mad. Holly was always there with her big smile. We grew up on the same street. Our mothers had coffee together all the time and life was good and simple. Mrs.
