    Dearest Phyllis and family. We think of Jon as the faithful husband and father who was present at all the family events to support the ones he loved. May the angels escort him to the throne of God in paradise
    May God give you peace as you continue life without him after so many long years together. You are all in our thoughts and prayers

    Mary and Jenny and family, I am so sorry to hear that your dad died. You used to babysit for my son, John Marfisi, in the early 80s. I’ve remembered you fondly, and please know you’re in my thoughts during this difficult time.

    My deepest sympathy. I have fond memories of Uncle Jon laughing and being playful with Aunt Phyllis and the kids – my cousins. May the peace of our Lord Jesus guide the family through this difficult time and welcome Uncle Jon into the Kingdom of Heaven.
