Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Quinn, JC, Tim, and Tom.
My deepest sympathies for your loss. I have far too many memories of Aunt Gloria to write about, most from my early childhood. She was always kind and patient with me, even while raising 4 very active young boys. Her death marks the passing of the generation of our parents, who raised us during some very challenging times. I'm fortunate to have known and loved both your parents, and I will carry fond memories of them as long as I live.

Dear JC, Quinn, Tim and Tom,

We extend our sincerest sympathy for the loss of your mother. She was an extremely friendly, wonderful person who loved to converse. The Bolla family was a distant relation of my father who sponsored his immigration to thiis country from Italy for which we are forever grateful. She will be sorely missed by all.

May she Rest In Peace and perpetual light fall upon her.

The Albanesi family

JC, Quinn, Tim, and Tom, you mom will always be remembered by Susan and me. She was always there when we needed a hand, even when Uncle Wilbur was alone at home, she kept an eye out for him. She always had my respect, she earned it with being a caring mother, wife, and neighbor. God bless her.

I had the privilege to work with Gloria for many years at the Aetna. She was one of the sweetest and most conscientious colleagues I worked with in my 42 year business career. My sympathies to her family.

Tim and Family. Your mom is surely looking down from heaven since she had to be a saint to raise four boys and two were twins. 40 plus years at same job and raising a family ... WOW. I feel for your loss having my mom pass about 7 yeas ago. Not a day goes by and I do not thing about her. Keep all the good times in your thoughts and know others are thinking about you and your family.

Your good friend, Dan
