Condolence: Dearest Joyce & Jerry; Joyce, i found this online and hope you don't mind my adding my sincerest sympathies for the passing of your dear Mother!
She sounds like such a wonderful mother and friend! isn't it wonderful when God gives us such parents, not all have them. i never met your mom, but i am sure i would have loved her because i always loved you!i now understand your pain...we lost my Mom a short time ago, July 15, of this year. Mamma (Letizia Ingallina)lived with us for the past 5 years, and declined slowly. God was faithful to her for over 91 years and she was ready to meet her LORD. 9 of her 11 children were at her bedside during her last days, as well as 25 grandchildren and 15+ greatgrandchildren, and when she breathed her last. we all miss her terribly but we have the assurance that we will share Eternal Life with her and our Lord Jesus Christ!
Please know you and your family are in our prayers, and my deepest love and blessings are and have been with you and dear Jerry and your son, Adam, who i am sure has a family of his own now.
i love you my dear friend, and i thank God always for you being part of my life! i loved seeing the pictures of you and Jerry - i pray all is well with you both. please receive big hugs and kisses for you both.
in the LORD's love, bernadette and russell bovee
Condolence: Helen was our dear friend and next door neighbor in Saranac Lake. We loved her no- nonsense ways and her dry sense of humor. She often had us in stitches. She was a good friend to us and our cats and went out of her way to be kind. We often marveled watching her head out to work on cold snowy mornings. We missed her when she moved but were happy to know she was with her family she loved so much.
XO Susan and Frank Pastizzo
Condolence: Dear Joyce, Tricia, Charlie and family, I was absolutely shocked when Jane called to tell me she had heard Helen had passed away, Last year when she was here for her last visit, when it came to say goodbye to her, a great sadness came over me and I felt in my heart that I would never see her again. I am so glad that she and I talked recently on the phone. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of you having lost both of your beloved parents in such a very short time. May they both rest in peace. Helen is no longer suffering with pain. I have many fond memories of all the years she and I shared an office at Sweeney's. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Condolence: Dear Tricia and Joyce, I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Our family has great memories of visits to Charlie's Inn. How many people would welcome their daughter's friend who comes with FOUR children? We remember her fondly, with love.
Condolence: she was an absolutely amazing woman with whom I worked with at Sweeney & Fiorile...William A Sweeney and Edenfield and Snow! We share many memories and I am truly glad that she got to meet my grandson, Owen Smith in October 2012. She was an Accountant with many many friends. I admire her a great deal and will never be able to walk in her shoes. I was able to tell her anything and unless I asked her opinion she would just listen....her and I didn't connect immediately...but quickly...I was the "mail girl" at Sweeney and Fiorile and I offered to retrieve her personal mail while she was away visiting family and send it to her....that sucked me in and I was Helen's for life....I gladly retrieved her mail for her and awaited her return.....we shared many girls nights out..one of the most memorable was a $75.00/bottle dessert wine and a Richard Gere movie. Helen ....we Share so Many memories and you always won when we went to the Casino! You had that luck! We shared many wine breaks and laughs and I cherish all of these memories...forever...the most difficult is absorbing the fact that you are gone..I haven't suffered this loss since my dear Grandmother in 2000 and you took over where she left off...what am I going to do without you? Thank you for the memories Helen....You have tattooed my heart forever and your laugh echos in my heart and mind forever xxoo
Condolence: Helen was a dear friend and I will miss her terribly. We share many happy times and good memories. It is very sad to think that she is really gone. She will remain in my heart forever. She was a very strong, admirable and independent woman who I feel blessed to say that she was a part of my life and I will cherish that forever. Thank you for becoming my "Mom" and making me a part of your family xxooxxoo
