To the families of Mariruth,
Our sincere sympathy for the loss of a kind and wonderful woman. Many fond memories I hold dear to my heart
over the years. She certainly was a ray of sunshine when we gathered together. So very happy to have
crossed paths with her.
May she rest in the Arms of Our Mighty Lord and Savior, till we meet again.
With Love,
Frank&Mary Guzzardo Annese
