  1. Wow Aunt Lucy you have been gone for 3 years. It seemd like only yesterday that I was calling you. You passed away too soon. I miss you terribly. One thing for sure I can still hear your voices in my mind. I remember all of our talks. They were good. I have brought Aunt Margie with me to Tennessee. I am trying for her to have a good life. It is hard Aunt Lucy. At least you aren’t suffering anylonger. Imiss you and Aunt Rita and Aunt Peggy too. I keep in touch with Aunt Josie. We got to see Joseph and Tammy. The only thing I regret is not coming to see you and Uncle Dave before you both departed. Ben also. Well Aunt Lucy I wanted to talk to you. I will pray tonight to see you in my dreams. I love you and miss you. I pray that Joseph and the family are in good spirits always. Loss is always hard. Your Niece Diane

  2. Dear Sister Lucille,

    When Joseph called me about the sad news, the first that came to mind was that you were free from your body hurting and walked with no pain. To greet you was God, Dave and Ben. Also there was our sister Rita and our Family. Will miss you terribly. Enjoy meeting in heaven with the whole family and friends. Love you and miss you.
    Always your sister Margaret

  3. Losing a parent is never easy, yet it is looked upon as the natural order, versus losing a child. May you have the strength to share your grief and relish in the found memories. My prayers are with you.

  4. Dearest Joe & Tam,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your dear mother, Lucille. She was always a favorite lady of mine and I enjoyed hearing the laughter in her voice when I spoke with her at Easter time from La Quinta. The world is a better place because of her and in her honor, we should all get together soon and make a big batch of sauce!
    Her laughter, that twinkle in her eye, and her loving nature will all be missed. She had a wonderful life – thanks to both you and Tam.
    God, we ask that you bless Lucille and welcome her into your Kingdom.
    We Love You Both,
    Lynda & Dean O’Hare

  5. Joseph and Tammy:

    Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of Ms. Lucy. Lucy now knows the glory of the Heavenly Kingdom and eternal paradise shared by Dave, Ben, Rita and other family members. Her tireless devotion to family and friends will never be forgotten. Lucy will live on in the lessons and experiences she shared with everyone she came in contact with. May your hearts mend, in time, and your memories stay strong.

    It is with a heavy heart but a joyful spirit that I offer to you my deepest sympathy for the loss of Ms. Lucille. I am honored to have been allowed the opportunity to care for both your mother and father. They both share a very special part of my heart and I will fondly remember the many stories and lessons they shared with me. I know that Ms. Lucille is reunited with both your father, brother and many other family members. One day, you both will join them again. I pray that God Blesses both of you, provides you comfort in His healing presence. May you find joy and healing in the memories you have for you mom, dad and brother. Thank you again for allowing me to care for them and share this difficult time in your life. My life had indeed been blessed in many ways by you and your family.
    Prayers and Blessings

  8. Joseph and family,
    I was very sad to hear of your mothers passing, but I know she is happier now that she is with her David and Ben. These past few years have been very challenging for her. Please know that as her hospice social worker, she has inspired me and provided ME with comfort. She was such a spirited and bright lady. I know that I have been truly belessed to have known her and her husband.

    My love, thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Miss Lucille will always be a part of my heart.

    Always,
    Fe Ana Balsick
    ex Social Worker for Frontier Hospice

  9. Joe and Family,
    I was saddened to read of Lucille’s passing and of Dimetrio’s
    passing as well. It was my great
    pleasure to meet them as well as
    help care for Dimetrio when he first
    got his G-tube. I will always remember Lucille’s vibrance and quick wit! God has blessed your lives with loving parents who lived a very long and full life. They are together once again and what a celebration in Heaven!!
    May the loving heart of our Lord comfort you in this time and carry you through with the blessed memories you share.
    With Love Peace and Blessings in
    Christ,
    Paula

  10. Dear Joseph and Tammy,

    It took me this long to write a note about the saddened news of your mother my Aunt Lucille. This past year has been so complexed for me. The only wau I can explain it to myself is that God needed some extra special help. Our loved ones were the chosen ones. I want you to know that you are always with me in Spirit. I can still hear Aunt lucille and also Uncle Dave. Their voices are omprinted in my memories. Ben’s also. At this holiday time I am not only sad but also rejoicing that i had a chance to speak with them before their passing on. In our family I don’t ever a loss like this past year. It only strives to make me better in staying in contact with those who are close to me and which I love very much. One thing for sure your parents gave me love through the telephone lines. I was not able to travel to see them. Ben gave me love through email. He became a special part of my life for I didn’t have anuone at the time I coud go to for guidence. I will never forget that. Then with the passing of Aunt Rita, my special friend even though she was my Aunt. I miss her dearly. We had so many plans to accomplish. But now they are only in my memories. So I say to you My cousins,I will keep in touch whether it be through an email or a telephone call but remember you are not alone. You walk with the rest of us who will surely miss all.

I want to share this one thing with you……Two nights before Aunt Rita Passed on. My daughter Michelle and I were there to see her. We said the The Our Father together. We prayed the entire visit. She knew that she was not coming home. She did know that she was going to the most High Home……..With the lord. I feel in our conversation with your Mother and myself the week before she passed on that she knew. She kept asking me to come there for she had so much to tell me. I beleive she knew also. I also looked to your mother for guidence. Our conversations were of life and the living of life. When I am saddened I sit quietly and cry. Then a peace comes over me as if they are telling me not to cry for them but to be happy for they are no longer suffering. May you have a peaceful season and may the Universe comfort you at this special time of the year.

    With all my Love Always and Forever. To Tristen, Justin and Carol also.
    Your Cousin Diane

  12. Dear Joe and Tammy,

    Please know that you have been in our prayers. Loss is never easy, but I pray you would find peace and comfort in our Creator Jesus Christ. We may never understand why things happen, but know that Jesus is close to those who mourn and hurt. I have learned from experience through my mom and Nana. As they celebrate together in heaven at yet another home coming of one of our family members may the memories of Aunt Lu, Uncle Dave and your brother always bring a smile to your face until you too can meet with them again. All our love Lynn, Guy, Rita and Rebekah (Rosanne’s daughters)

  13. Dear Joseph and Tammy,
    Joe and I returned from vacation to hear the sad news that Aunt Lucille had passed on. Our hearts are heavy with sadness,especially being so many miles away,however, I her niece, picture her in the best of health,rejoicing with her family in heaven.

    Joseph, I would like to take this time to express my memory of your Mom and Dad way back when I was a little girl. Aunt Lucille and Uncle Dave were my “OZZIE and HARRIET”. They always spoke with respect,kindness, and great admiration for eachother. Aunt Lucille and Uncle Dave were the smartest and most fun to be with. They always showed an interest in their family.

    As a grown woman, with my own family, there was never a time when speaking with them that their special love for family did not travel through the phone lines.
    My Mom adored them and I kinow they adored her.

    I can picture their smiles as I write this and I know their memory will live on in my heart forever.

    With Love,
    Cousins Nancy and Josseph Imbriale and Family
