Memories Timeline


  1. Aunt Laura, Thank you for all the great things you did for me growing up and into my adult life. I will always love you. Marlene (dance with the dolly with the hole in her stocking)

  2. Dear Joe, Judy, Linda and Family, I know how hard it is to bear a loss of the one you love so much. Please know that I and my children all sent our love and prayer to you at this most difficult time. Ken and I have such wonderful memories of the happy person Laura was and the wonderful visits we would have at the family gathering. as you may remember Ken passed away in January of this year and Laura called me and we talked about how she and Ken loved each other and how much Ken loved Joe. Sincerely, Judy Soprano

  3. Dear Judith,
    I’m so very sorry to here of your Mom’s passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy to you, your sister and your Dad.
    I know how difficult today and the days ahead will be for you, as I too just lost my Mom this past July. Remember the good times, try to forget the sad, know that her pain is over and she’s happy and smiling once again.

    I’ve thought of your Mom alot lately and I’m glad I took the opportunity to stop and see her one day, not too many years ago. I will always have fond memories of her when you and I were growing up. I especially remember the many times she drove us to your Dad’s garage. Hopefully, our Moms will find one another and talk about those days walking the three girls down Ridge Road to St. John’s School every day. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    As always,,,Sharon LaDuque-Sechrist

  6. Dear Judy, Linda and family,

    We had just recently found out about Aunt Laura and Unce Joe not being well. We were so saddened to hear that both of them have passed on. To lose both of them in such a short time must be devastating. They both were always so full of life and fun to see. Gary has alot of wonderful memories of those old days when the Wille’s used to get together. We will certainly miss those Christmas phone calls from Aunt Laura. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.

  7. I have nothing but great memories of my Aunt Laura. Christmas Eve’s at her house and sitting at the kitchen table listening to stories. She always had a big kiss for me. Thank you for the great childhood memories. I will miss your smile. Rest in Peace and may God bless you and your family.
