    I will miss all the lovely letters from my sister Connie. She always had a way with words and expressed them so clearly. She loved her family with all her heart. I’m so lucky we found each other before her passing away. Bernie was the love of her life and her children brought sunshine into her daily devotion. With my deepest sympathy and love, Edie Dinneen(Gibilisco)

    For my very dear friend Bernie, as I’ve had trouble catching up with you, this past week , but where there’s a will, there’s a way, thanks to help from a few other friends, and my daughter Susan.
    You’ve suffered a HUGE loss in your beloved wife Connie, and I will pray for you often, as I know how much you depended on her for so many things.
    She will be missed by everyone she touched, throughout her special life, and we know she’s up there in Heaven, and probably the new Italian cook for The LORD.
    You’ve been special people to me over the years, and my very first Christmas card was always from her over the decades, and always included a taste of faith to perk me up.
    Pleas accept my sorrowful grief, and PLEASE take care of yourself. And R.I.P., Constance, as I just know where you are. Love you guys, Big Al 🙂
