    From all your friends at Warren Tettensor Amantea LLP our thoughts are with you on the loss of your dear Mother. Many of us had the opportunity of knowing her and feel privileged that we did. She was an aspiring individual with alot of spunk and we will never forget her. Take care Kathryn – remember she is in a better place and doesn’t have to suffer any more.

    Zia Kathy,

    (and to Michelle Lisa, Lewis and Zio Aldo)

    I was sad to hear of your mom’s passing. Although I haven’t kept in touch with her in the recent years, I have many fond memeories of her when I was a child. She was always kind and welcoming to anyone that entered her / your home. I mostly remember the family gatherings that brought everyone together for a meal that always seemed like organized chaos during the preparation. Your mother was the silent rock that saw what was missing and quietly filled in the missing pieces to the puzzle. Even when logic suggested things weren’t going according to plan, they always finished with everyone full of good food, lots of fun and laughter and most appreciative of the hospitality that was given. In the end always a success.

    I will always have fond memeories of your mother and I will be praying for her eternal peace.

    John Furlan and Family
