Memories Timeline


  1. A great spirt has passed over. I’ve sent a donation to the Scleroderma Research Foundation. Sorry to miss the Celebration of Life ceremony.

  2. Cynthia was very special to all of us, but especially to my parents. I meant to thank her for always being so sweet and kind to them but somehow i missed the opportunity to say all the things i wanted.
    I hope she knew how much she meant to us. We will always remember her and be thankful for having spent time with her.
    Rui and Gary
