Nancy and Family,

Uncle John and Aunt Millie were my Godparents. Have many fun memories of times with your family.


We were next door neighbors to John and Isabelle for many years and could not have asked for kinder and more considerate neighbors. They were great friends to us and our teens grew up caring for and by them. John was a very special and talented man, they don't make them like him anymore. Rest in peace, Mr. Serra, you certainly had a life well-lived.

I am so sorry to hear this. I have such wonderful memories of your mom and dad. Then, later in life of Ruth and Isabelle. You and your family will be in our prayers. I hear reunions can be fabulous. I hope all of our family members are having the best time ever! Debbie McGivern Simon

John was always a close friend of my dad, Jerry McGivern, from NJ up into Syracuse NY. We all knew and loved "Uncle John". Hope they are together again having another great time.

Nancy, My sincere condolences on the loss of your Dad.I have nothing but fond thoughts of both your Father and Mother.I will always remember him as a "Gentle Giant" who was kind and never spoke ill of anyone.My prayers are with him.
