Condolence & Memory Journal

I am sorry to have missed Mary's wake and funeral. I grew up next door to this great family and have many fond memories. Mary was a very kind and welcoming neighbor. She came to my mother's wake and my sister Margaret and I will always remember her kindness. The Tortoricis always had a big garden. Benny always had a smile and was very loving father.

Celia, Dave, Maria, and Dorie, Words can not express our sorrow. We will miss Mary's smile and always positive outlook on life. She always told us when we saw her that we were family, and she always made us feel like we were. May fond memories help comfort you at this time.
Laureen and Kelly

Very sorry to hear of your mom's passing.
I spent many hours at her kitchen table with my mom. She was the last friend of the Friday morning shoppers. I am sure she was greeted with open arms.
