  1. I pass my deepest regrets to the entire family. I am so sorry that I will not be available to attend Elsie’ s showing. It is so sad to me that the Sommariva family were not closer over the many years. I do plan to pay my respects to Elsie at St. Michael’s Cemetery during my routine visits to visit my Mom and Dad. God Bless the entire family.

  2. Dear Leslie, Bobby, Jimmy and Ralphie,
    We were so sorry to hear about your mom when Mike called. She was so pretty and a lot of fun to be around. I know how much you all will miss her. Just remember she will always be with you. She will be there when you least expect it, so never stop looking. Wish we were there now, but you are in our thoughts and prayers, Love from Mar, Tim and Dillon
