"My sincere condolences to Joe?s, Ray?s, and Rose?s families. I have such fond memories of you mom at your Mt. Ephraim home, sitting around the kitchen table and enjoying her cooking with the whole family. What a legacy she and your dad have left. I know she will be missed, but I?m encouraged to know she has been reunited with dad and Rose in the kingdom of God. And I?m very disappointed I cannot say goodbye to her with all of you, as we will be out-of-state on vacation. Perhaps we can find another time to connect and remember all the Tortorelli?s that have gone before."

"Dear Tortorelli family, My deepest condolences for your loss. While I was not fortunate enough to meet Barbara, I have had the honor and pleasure of working with her son Ray for the past several years. I'm certain Ray's always pleasant demeanor, kindness, and sense of service are a reflection of his mom and if so- I'm sure she must have been wonderful woman. I'll be praying for Barbra, Ray, and the entire family. Sean Henseler"
