Private Condolence

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. It seems so unfair that death should have the power to take away someone you love. However, the Bible at Psalm 34 and verse 18 assures us that our Heavenly Father is aware of our pain and is near to the broken-hearted. The Bible also gives us the promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4). It is my hope that the power of God’s Word will help to ease your sorrow as you cherish the loving memories you shared together. For more information please visit JW.ORG.

I went to college with Carmen. She was a genuinely good person and a true New Yawker. Her heritage and her family's importance were reflected in her daily life.
May she rest in peace.

The Epiphany community was so blessed by our beloved "Mrs. Desimone". She was kind, caring and devout. She was a true gift to the parish and to all our children. I will miss seeing her but I know she is now home with her love Ronnie, where she wanted to be. Rest in peace, Carmen.
