    Dear Diane and Dale, Thank you so very much for handling Richard's (Dad's) arrangements with such grace and dignity. We appreciated your kindness, professionalism and patience, including the preparation. Diane, thanks for answering the phone, many times same question, different person. Dale, thanks for your gentle direction as we needed direction. You followed thru on your promise to get us whatever we needed, you even presented us with a bottle of water for my brother. Thank You! Your genuine consideration was displayed when you arrived at Mom's house to complete the final details. James A. O'Connor Funeral Home exceeded our expectations in making Richard's services seamless. We will be forever grateful! Deepest Gratitude, prayers and love, Sherri Knupp - daughter The Richard Trizzino Family Read more

    Dearest Diane, Dale, & Wally, This thank you is past due as I couldn't find the words to say- so here goes- straight from my heart. Betty was a loving wonderful unselfish amazing woman! With your knowledge, kind words, love, and support we certainly made her proud! You took away all the worry and stress at this difficult time. You truly are "my" unsung heroes. Thanks for ordering the beautiful flowers, they were perfect! Thanks for answering questions and solving problems. But especially the "Chicago Bulls" prayer cards. That was out this world awesome! Thanks Dale for being the middle man, that really took a weight off my shoulders, and I appreciate you. So simply stated: Thank you so much for everything. You made it easy and yet personal. She was sooo beautiful! God's blessings to you. With much love and gratitude, Diane & Keith Celestine, Barbara Gaskell and the family of Betty Rudsinski. Read more
