Memories Timeline


  1. Jim, Martha and family,
    We were sorry to read of your precious Mother's passing but so happy that you had her love and guidance for all these years. To come to the end of your life at age 98 so loved by so many is a wonderful blessing and in her case, so well deserved. In all my 81 years, I can't think of a kinder, gentler lady than Viola. My mother adored her and we always spoke of her with fond memories of fun times that we spent together when I was a young girl. Now your Dad has his soulmate again by his side after so many years. I am sorry that we will not be able to attend her wake or funeral but please know that she will certainly be in our prayers those days. Our love to all the family.
    Dotty and Basil Magro
