Not sure what to say?

It is with a heavy heart that I remember this wonderful woman and what she meant to me. She truly was my surrogate mother when my mom died and was always full of life and love. You will be missed and will always be close. Say Hi to your dear Vince and my mom & dad for me when you see them.


What a wonderful lady.Always eager, with a big smile& conversationto visit me when i came from Michigan to visit across the street. She is greatly missed.

When we moved across the street from the Guariglia's almost 15 years ago we were blessed with having a wonderful friend and "family member." Because of Ms. Maggie's belief in "never met a stranger' the neighborhood, her family and my family all became one.
We truly miss our dog sitter, my cookie tester, my "Mom", our walks, her laughter, and her guts to try anything once..
love & miss you,
Kenny,Fay,Billie & Lillie

Our hearts are filled with grief Dear Lord as we ask for your loving help and comfort in the passing of Frances mother and my mother in law-Maggie Guariglia. Someone loved so very very much ! The emptiness within us cries out for the guidance and gental mercy we so badly need. How thankful we are for the many happy moments we shared with our loved one. We shall cherish those times forever.

Ms. Maggie,
Your legacy lives on in your wonderful family. What a phenomenal woman you are because even from heaven you are touching lives on earth. Thank you for blessing my family without knowing much about us in such a special way. I pray that we create as many wonderful memories as you did in your Wheeling Dr. home. You will live in our thoughts forever. We are forever grateful. May you rejoice always.

Until we meet again,

Belkis, Jhonny and Jaden
