Our sincere condolences, Tina, Danielle and Anthony. Your parents were so wonderful and dear friends to my Mom and Dad. They’re playing cards together and drinking wine as I write this I’m sure. God Bless. Phil Jr.

Tina, Danielle, Tony, and family - my sincerest condolences on the loss of your mother. I had the pleasure of meeting her once when she visited Danielle in Colorado (I'm one of Danielle's friends there) and she was so vibrant, so funny, so full of life. I loved her immediately. I'm so sorry for your loss, and I hope you all can find peace in the memories.

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. My relationship with your mom started back in grammar school and high school. Your mom was in our wedding and I was in hers. As a matter of fact she was the one who introduced me to my husband. We enjoyed many good times with her over the years. She had an infectious smile and personality. May she Rest In Peace. We are sure your whole family will live with many wonderful memories of her. May God Bless you All.

Marlene was a true warrior and wonderful person. We worked together in Williamsburg and I know she will be missed by many. She was always so full of spunk and had a passion for helping others. I'm sure she is an angel amongst us and looking for opportunities to help where she can.
