    We first met Margaret when Mandy was three. We were at the YMCA waiting for the kids during lessons. Throughout the years we would work together at St Mary’s and SMCC. She and Tim were devoted volunteers and we always enjoyed our time with them. May she have the peace she deserves. We will miss her. Arnie and Carol

    Dear DiSabatino family,
    I’m very sorry for your loss and hope you’ll accept my condolence and deep regrets because this enemy death shows no mercy but always brings much grief and pain and I’d like to share where I found help at such a time as this when this enemy death took my entire family. I found much comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 tells us this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. These scriptures and others help me cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my family again and I wanted to share this with you at this difficult time when hope and comfort is needed hoping this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please feel free to let me know. I do want you to know that I do share your grief and hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
