    Dear Uncle Bill , Elaine and family, our deepest sympathy on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother. Elaine, Your mom was a beautiful person inside and out and loved by so many that knew her. I have so many wonderful memories of her as I was growing up. She was always so sweet. I will miss her terribly as all of you will too. My mom and dad adored her and not only was she their sister-in-law but a wonderful friend. I’m sure they have welcomed her into eternal life with open arms. May you all find peace and comfort in knowing that your grief is shared by so many of us. God bless you and your wonderful family. Love, cousin Diane , Artie and children.

    Dear Elaine,
    I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother. Though I never knew her, she must have been a wonderful, caring person since you embody those very same qualities. I hope you and your family will find comfort in remembering the many years you had with her. Most sincerely, Nancy and George Pettinelli

    I only heard about Aunt Bertha’s passing yesterday from my brother Andrew Fleming. Aunt Bertha was one of the few Aunts and Uncles I knew as I was growing up being the youngest grandchild of the Cormier Clan. Have many good memories that will stay with me forever. I wish I could have seen her in the recent past, put did not work out that way. My sincere condolences to her immediate family and especially to Uncle Bill. Love you all.
