“I am very sorry to learn of the passing of Mrs. Amelia Gentile. I use to place Bible literature with her. She loved to read especially religious materials. I can still see her sitting on her front porch reading her Bible. She is now in God's memory. The scripture at Revelation 21:4 has always brought me comfort and hope that one day I will see my dead loved ones again.”
“My Grandmother was the true matriarch of our family. Losing her definitely leaves a void in all of our lives. I know that she is truely at peace and will always remember her in my heart. ”
