Seems I am always a day late and a dollar short.
Diana and Joanna, I am so sorry to see that your mom has passed. My heart goes out to you both. Though on the other side of the country from you two, you are never far from my thoughts. Your mom loved you both and was a ferocious beast when it came to protecting you two and Emilio. She was always kind and hospitable to me when I visited and will always remember the disco downstairs and your parents entertaining guests.
The good thing about this is that she and your father are together again, dancing, singing, laughing, and loving.
Dear Joanna & Diana I was so sorry to hear that your Mom had died. I just came back from vacation and was planning to visit her at Evergreen then when I came home I was very ill with the bug. I shall never forget her She was a wonderful friend and I will miss calling her on the phone and talking to her. Please accept my condolences and she will be in my prayers. Sincerely Marie Charpentier
Your mother is now joined again by your father....two wonderful people I met a couple of years ago on the East Providence Bike Path. I am sending you both--Joanna and Diana-- and other members of the Petrucci/Mattera families my heartfelt condolences during this time.
Dear Joanna, Diana, and Anthony: I would like to express my sincere condolences on the recent passing of your mother/sister. I realize that no comfort is ever enough to replace the loss of a loved one. You will all be kept in my thoughts and in my prayers. Very Sincerely, Rick Petrucci.
To the Petrucci family, I am sorry for your loss. Your mother is at peace in a much better place now. I will keep you in my prayers.
