Card of Thanks

I would like to take the time to thank everyone who either, lent me a helping hand, visited, sent flowers or cards, or simply had comforting words during the days following the loss of my husband, Salvatore Tomaiolo. To my church family at St. Paulís, Father Chris, Paul Bartholomew, and the ladies of Bethany Ministries, who provided a lovely luncheon, thank you so much for your effort in helping the funeral run smoothly and being there in my time of need. Last but certainly not least, to John and Sue, who were and have continued to be my right hand and have been there for me through it all. I am forever grateful.


Grace Tomaiolo


In Memoriam


In Loving Memory of

John L. Stoddart

First Anniversary

09-27-39 - 02-14-13

Itís been quite a journey this past year without you by my side. My step has slowed as it seems you now have one half of my heart. Our Lucy Lu still sniffs for her Daddyís scent. I am forever grateful for the many years we had together. Yes, we had our ups and downs, but it was an exciting, loving and grand life and I will forever remember your sweet smile and infinite kindness, your generosity in deed and spirit to me and others, your loyalty, your uncompromising stance as to right or wrong, your enthusiasm and wit, and of course, the outrageous over-the-top stories you would recite at the drop of a hat. I miss you something awful. Beyond question, "Weíll meet again, donít know where, donít know when, but weíll meet again some sunny day" on that incredible beautiful other side.

Godís Speed my love, Forever yours, Erika
