  1. Sister dear my love and prayers are with you until we are together again. Terry, Al and Paul our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time.

  2. Our Deepest Sympathy, and our Thoughts and Prayers are with the Fontana Family. Your Friends at Harbor City Auto Sales.

  3. My deepest sympathy to the Fontana family. I am sorry for your loss. May our Heavenly Father provide you encouragement and peace at this time. He comforts us with his promise found at Revelation 21:3,4 which says," He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." I hope these words bring comfort to you as they have for me for many years.
