Past Comments


As a friend of Paul, I loved seeing her attend his Weird Science shows. She was so very proud of her son and it was written on her face with her bright and beautiful smile.

Tony, Nothing but fine memories of your Mother. I take great joy in the way our Moms got along at St. V’s in their later years. Both were very involved as you know and always on the same spiritual page. Hoping that this message of comfort finds you and finds you well.

Hang in there….

Our hearts and thoughts are with you on the passing of dear Connie. We will always remember her warmth towards us and her special friendship with my Mom. It was very touching to read the acknowledgement of this. We cannot be in Milwaukee on Friday, but we will be there in spirit honoring our memories like newly made pasta spread all over the house drying! Thank you, Connie.
Warm regards,

Aunt Connie was one of the most wonderful women I knew and Uncle Sam one of my favorite men in the world! Together they had a fabulous family and I have many warm memories from my childhood, spending time together in their home, at Brown’s lake and staying at cottages up north on our families many summer vacations together. Aunt Connie and Uncle Sam were my parent’s best friends and I will always remember Aunt Connie, a strong, beautiful woman, vibrant with her beautiful smile and sparkle in her eye. She will always live on in her beautiful daughters that remind me of her. I loved her and she will be missed, but I am confident she is happily reunited with her beloved Sam and my parents. I know they are all having fun together again! My condonlences to the family and I look forward to seeing all of you Friday.
Love, and hugs and kisses,
Mary Goldbeck (Maryrose Patti)

We were saddened to hear about the passing of your mom. Take comfort that she is no longer suffering. Our friendship made a hard time easier.

Connie and Sam and their big family always let me and my son, a tiny family, know that we were welcome to spend holidays and holydays with them. When we did, the love in the house was overwhelming. Connie and Sam sure knew how to raise a great family and make any guest feel a part of that family. Thank you Connie — and Sam. Love and Peace, Margo and Sean Huston
