Ellen & family-
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. You have been so steadfast in your love and care for your Dad that you should know he is resting in a wonderful place, finally at peace with a full smile on his face as he watches over the wonderful family he has left behind.

Our prayers are with you,

Dear Ellen, Jimmy, and Ritchie,
So sorry for your loss. As far back as I can remember it was Aunt Helen (with her great laugh) taking pictures with Uncle Jimmy by her side. Always present and always happy to see us. We loved them and we miss them.
You are in our thoughts and prayers,
Cousin Mary Ellen (Holmes) Patrick, Thomas, Emma, Michaela, and P.J. Forgione
