Dear Debbie, Dorothy , David & family,
I can't tell you how devastated I am to hear of your mother's death. Growing up we were all so close, and your mother and father made sure, after I moved to North Carolina, that my mother had them for company. Aunt Helen also told me about Ricky and hearing of the two of them, my heart is broken. My health precludes me from making the trip to Wayne, but please be sure that you and the whole family are in my prayers and that I will offer my mass & communion Sunday for your mother.
Love, Aunt Betty Pruzinsky
To All the Quackenbush Clan,
we will all miss Aunt Ril terribly but are sure to hold on to the memories of our time with her and especially the Chadwick escapades with all of the cousins. She was truly one of a kind and along with Aunt Neat and my Mom were the closest set of sisters anywhere. Our deepest sympathies to all of you.
Bob , Elaine and family
I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Cyrilla. I was Debbie's boss at one time and came to know and love Sirita (I could never get her name straight) so I was allowed to call her that!
I hope over the years that I knew Sirita that I was able to bring some joy and laughter to her when we spoke or went out to lunch or dinner. We were supposed to go to the Lincoln Airport restaurant for BLT's when she got better. I will now go in her honor and memory.
I will always have a special place in my heart for Sirita and I know she is at peace now with Dave.
My sincere sympathies to her entire family. A truly outstanding and loving mother and friend.
I was saddened to hear of your loss.I only knew Cyrilla as my sister's longtime neighbor but have fond memories of the occasional backyard conversations over the years. Please know how very sorry I am.
To my Cousins,
Wow...I feel like I'm in a daze or a horrible nightmare with all of the tragedy that has occurred this week for all of us!!
I am truly grateful every single day for the outstanding family I have and for all of the love and support we have given each other and will continue to give each other forever. Aunt Ril adopted me as her "third daughter" after my Mom passed almost 4 years ago , and Rick as a second son who was always there for her when she needed painting etc., around the house.
I will miss her immensely, as we all will feel a gaping hole in our lives and in our hearts. Always the "tough German"...right to the very end.
I will miss not only my big brother, but my second mother. But I can already feel their presence guiding me to be strong, the same way they were. We will all get through this because of our strong families and faith that everything will work out and be ok.
Like all of us, I have so many wonderful memories to hold on to and will cherish always.
I love you all.
