    Dear Dick, Rich, Pat, Nora and Terence, together with your large group of family and friends,
    I wish to join the others to offer my most sincere condolences for having lost your angel on earth. Many precious memories have been made on True St with your family, none of which would have been possible without that beautiful woman you cherished so well.
    She was a mother to many of us too, and gave us a model of perfection for how a wife and mother could be. Graceful, happy elegant in her simplicity and strong in her Faith, I think I could speak for all the True St Gang to say she was as beautiful inside as out, and that her presence will be missed terribly.
    We never know what we have until it’s gone, and I know you will have much grieving to do, with the calm satisfaction of knowing she flew straight to Jesus in Heaven. The memories should be all the sweeter.
    Love and Hugs to you all. ✝️
    Joseph Sardina and family
