  3. Juliana,
    It has been a long time since I worked with you at Safeway but I think of you often and wanted you to know I am truly saddened to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful person. I saw her a couple of months ago in Wal-Mart and she was as always so happy to see me and talked of you. You were so lucky to have her as she was to have you. You are in my prayers.

  4. Dear Antista/DeLuca Family,

    I was saddened to hear of Julia’s passing. She was a very nice and giving lady. I worked with her through home health and had felt like I had known her for years. May God bring you comfort and peace during your time of grieving. I am praying for you and your family. Valerie Rosen
