  1. Dear Jenny and family,
    I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I always loved chatting with her, from way back when I used to hang out with Jenny at home, and then after masses at Nativity, or bumping into her and Papa Joe in Media before we both moved away. Such a kind, loving, and caring soul. And I always admired her artistic talent, which she passed on to you, Jenny, and how beautifully your house on Picketing Lane was always decorated.
    I know you will all hold her and your dad’s memories in your hearts.

    Thinking of you all.
