    Aunt Ophelia, Uncle Jerry & Pam,

    There simply are no adequate words when losing a child or a sibling. The heartbreaking loss becomes a missing link to your Family Tree and most painful. Sadly, I can relate to such a deep loss of our infant daughter, Gina Marie.
    Please accept my sincere warm words of comfort, many prayers and love. May GOD GUIDE you through yet another painful Journey. May your hearts be comforted that both of your Angel Sons are now reunited in The Loving Care of GOD.

    Your Niece (& Cousin)

    Sherry Lynn Culotta
