Our synpathy to your family
Jim Caterbone Jr. and family

I am sorry to hear about your Mom, she truly was a great lady.  I apologize for not making the services, companies today just aren’t in tune with allowing time off for friends’ services.  I will keep you and your Family in my Thoughts and Prayers.

My deepest sympathy to everyone.  Aunt Midge and Uncle Joe deserve to be Sainted for sacrificing their retirement years to help raise their grandchildren.  I enjoyed their company and appreciated all that Uncle Joe and Aunt Midge have done for me over the last 4 years.
I hope that I will be able to attend the ceremonies; however if I am not able, please respect my situation.
Stan J. Caterbone, Nephew

I’d like to extend my sympathies to the family of Midge; she was a lovely lady who loved her family…and now she is with Joe and other family members. I have wonderful childhood memories of the old neighborhood and my friendship with Chris. I hope you find comfort and peace knowing your Mom is at peace.
With sincere sympathy, Judy (Harnish) Kiely
