Dear Patty and all the Gentile Family,
What a wonderful person your mom Mary was. I always remember her with a smile on her face and sharing her kindness and caring with others. No wonder she was so successful at working with the public as a saleswoman and buyer. My heart goes out to you in the loss of your mother. May you find peace and comfort in remembering all the beautiful life events you were able to share with your mom for so many years.
