Hi Wayne and Pete, so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. Looking at the pictures on the Brunswick Memorial site brings back so many wonderful memories. Your Mom and Dad were always the most loving and kind folks. I know you will miss your Mom, but I also know she will live on in your hearts. Please give our best to your Dad. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Peter, and Wayne I was so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. Living next door to you for so many years I got to know what a nice person she was. I haven't lived next door for almost 52 years and I probably only stopped by and talked to your dad a couple of times when I saw him sitting on the porch. I know he is really going to miss your mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.
Michael and Elizabeth Wenger
We will miss you Mrs. Rossi. You were a wonderful neighbor to us for the last 16 years.
Kevin, Sandra, and the boys.
