    Ray and family,
    We are very sorry for the loss of your dear wife and mother, Catherine. On behalf of my mother Lina I want to say how sad we are about her passing. Mom was so blessed to have you as neighbours and you always treated her with such kindness and respect. She will miss seeing Catherine for Sunday Mass and also miss those times she would pop by to have a visit. On behalf of Lina and the rest of the Coppola family our condolences.

  2. Dear Ray, I am the daughter of your best friend and buddy Ray Rose, I have heard some stories about you two guys going back to the younger huligan years, including how you meet your beautiful Catherine threw my dads wife, my mother, Trudy. As a small child, I can remember Mom and Dad saying, Better get all dressed up, The Kelly’s are coming over, seriously I thought Catherine was the Queen of England, always looking so greatly prestine and suitably dignafied. She always spoke in a soft voice and took a geniune interest in us kids. You have truly been a blessed man to have had the honor of sharing your lives together. Sincerely, Your God daughter,
    Lynda Jane Francis Rose
