"Dear Tieng, Tommy and Diana, there are no words to express how sad I am over Christine?s passing. I will ALWAYS remember her beautiful smile and mannerisms. I cannot look across the street without thinking of her and getting teary eyed. Life will not be the same without her in it. I have faith that she?s in peace, pain free, but sometimes that?s not enough to console her loved ones. I pray that the love and memories you all shared is enough, for now. God be with all of you. I will miss my friend. Love to all of you, from the Farrells. ???"

"Dear Diana and Tommy, so very sorry to hear of your Mom?s passing. I haven?t seen her in many years. Once our children aren?t in school and sports anymore, that happens,sadly. She was a sweet lady and always fun to talk to and laugh with. She was a great Mom who raised two great kids and I know she was very proud of you. I hope every happy memory will bring you comfort. Thinking of you and your family at this sad time. Love to both of you. Mr. and Mrs. Critelli. (Lucy and Joe?s parents)"
