Jon & family, Heaven gained such a beautiful angel. Your mom was a sweet caring mom who always welcomed us with a smile no matter where she was... In church, on the street, or serving us youngsters lunch at St. Jerome Catholic School cafeteria. May you find strength, love and peace in the days to come. May your mom's memory be eternal. Love and prayers, Dana Romito Galis, Derwood, Maryland
