Condolence From: Christopher (a.k.a. Buckwheat)
Condolence To: Dear LuAnne (a.k.a Fluffy), I just learned this morning of your passing into eternity. Needless to say I am both shocked and saddened by this news. We were good friends for more than 20 years. We first met when we worked at Neighborcare in West Hartford. My most precious memory of that time was sharing my faith in Christ with you and hearing you ask Jesus into your heart. I am confident that you found the Lord that day. We have been there for each other in time of need and I can honestly say that you have been, are, and always will be a huge part of my life. I miss you and will see you in Heaven. Love you Fluffy!

On behalf of President/Chief Administrator David Eustis and the entire Northwest Catholic High School community, I offer my deepest sympathy on the passing of Luanne Bordonaro '84.

Luanne, her parents, and her brother, Paul Bordonaro '81, are all valued members of the NWC family, so we share the Bordonaro family's grief as they mourn the too-early death of their beloved daughter, wife, stepmother, sibling, niece and dear friend to many.

Please know that we will remember Luanne and all her family in a special way during our daily prayers this week and also at our first school-wide Mass in September. We are so very sorry for your loss.
