Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Carol and Richard and family, Our thoughts, prayers and love are with you. Most Sincerely, Tinker and Howard

  2. Dear Carol, Richard, Mathew, Michael and families, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your dear Father and my heart breaks for all of you. I had the delightful experience of having lunch with Mathew at his favorite seafood restaurant once and was endeared to him immediately. Mostly I remember the Christmas following my Mother’s recent death when my own father was so despondent but, surprisingly, agreed to stop at Carol’s for a glass of vino. We watched you all play bocce ball out back, drank wine in the cold, laughing, joking. I could tell my father was actually enjoying himself. He had not enjoyed ANYTHING up to that point. We Italians so enjoy being with our families and our watching yours that day raised both our sprirts and helped us in our time of mourning. Thank you for that invitation to share your father, family and a bit of the grape. God bless you, Patti’s. I know your grief and will pray for all of you. Warmly, Barbara Marullo

  3. Carol, again, I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Please know that he is in a much better place than we are and when our time run’s out to be on this earth, that your Mom and Dad with be there to welcome you to your new home. Remember all the good times that you had your Dad and always know what a wonderful daughter that you were to him. My prayer’s are with you and your family. Love, Sylvia Ramon

  4. We send our prayers to our long time friend. Since we moved from Converse, Tx Matt has always been in our thoughts. We always checked with Paula about your Dad, and we missed seeing eating with him on Saturday night after church. So take care and our prayers are with you all.
