Dear Peter and Alex , Louanne, Dino ,Peter If anyone is in Heaven Elizabeth is. I was her Pastor at St. Bridget Church for 12 years and her deep, simple Italian faith inspired me. I was the celebrant of her motherís Funeral and we became close friends. She liked my Irish accent and wanted me to keep talking which I enjoyed doing. No matter what cause the Church was espousing Elizabeth was there to help and all her friends rallied to help. Be assured of my prayers for all of you at this sad time

Pete, and family, words will never explain how much Elizabeth meant to us both. For me, I have had so much love and respect for her, since we were younger. Our lives filled with laughter, old fashion times, just way too much to ever express how difficult this is all for all of you and us. She was the bright spot in so many lives, strong faith, kept her going the way she did. I will never ever forget her, my visits with her, our cuddling time, sharing special thoughts still are felt in my heart and mind.All of you had a true gift from God, and she was always your Angel, and will always be there for all of you in spirit. I know there is a void in many of our lives,she will never be far away,for she is and will be with all of us for ever.. Much love and prayers for all of you.
