  • I was lucky and very blessed to have this lovely woman as my mother. Words simply cannot describe what she meant to me and those closest to me, who she always embarrassed as her own. I, and many, many others, will miss her profoundly. I love you Mum (my last words to her, Sunday June 27th).

  • Jim, My Jim, My sincere condolences to you and your family. Little over a week ago I decided to have my wife do an online search for you, without much success. I thought of coming to the viewing, but I have been extremely cautious about being in crowds because of Covid It's been over 40 years, but I still talk about you. I have some things in my studio you left behind. And to this very day I teach some of the things you taught me, such as making a waste mould, to my interns. If you have any interest in communicating, my cell no. Is 935-5504. Or my wife's Facebook address is: Sincerely, John Rita

  • My Mum was the best. She was the person I could talk to about almost everything. She was supportive, loving, generous, and caring. People mattered to her. She would listen and loved to hear about you and your life. She was fiercely proud of her family and loyal to her faith throughout her life. I don't know how to live without her to talk to any more. But she is now at peace. I love you , Mum.

  • My mother was the most wonderful person I have ever met. She always supportive and encouraging with anything I ever did. I was lucky to be able to call her mom. I am going to miss her terribly. I love you mom.
