Lina “Angela” PAPINI

To Nick and Marilyn and all of the Papini Family

Losing a parent is always a painful experience that lasts for the rest of your lives. I hope that the pain subsides and the joy of the memories of your Mother replaces that pain.

May God bless you all at this trying time and always.

Take care,

To the Papini family, my sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers on the passing of your mom, grandma, aunt, etc. It is so difficult to lose the "glue" of the family, the one who was always there to listen, to offer a helping hand, dry a tear, give a hug. The wonderful Italian dinners that can never quite be replicated, but always remembered with fondness and a full tummy. There are really no words to express the loss of someone so special. Know that you are in my prayers. She is in Heaven and will always watch over all of you. Love to all.
