Not sure what to say?

To Joey and Judy, we will greatly miss your mother as she was always such a ray of sunshine where ever she was. We will especially always remember her hospitality when we were traveling back and forth to Camp Devons in our early years with food, drink and lodging at the DeLuca Inn. Please be comforted with the memories of her kindness, her smile and her love of life and especially of you and your children.

Our sympathy sent to let you know that others share your sorrow and want to tell you so. Cousin Tony and Evelyn
