To all of you, Gilbert and Flo's family, my sincerest sympathy in your Mom's passing.  As my sisters before me have stated I too am one of three daughters of Olive Lennon Pellicciotti and Russell Pellicciotti.  As the oldest, I have very fond memories of years spent together as children and young adults with my Uncle Ephe and your Mom and Dad.  I'm sure your parents have shared some of our wonderful times together as you were growing up.  Though in our adult years we were separated by miles, our hearts always remained joined together. We never let a Christmas go by without our yearly catch up letter.  One thing I did not know is that Mom and I shared the same birthday.  I shall miss your Mom and her letters as I still miss your Dad.  Flo was a "gem".

Dear Jim, Mary & Danielle,

We are so sorry to learn of the passing of Mary's mom.  In the few times we had the privilege of meeting her, she was clearly a very dear woman, who loved her family.  Please know that you all are in our prayers.  

With Love,
Dave, Kristen, Julie, Alayna & Joel

Dynamic, caring, lovable, sensible, respectful and the list goes on and on .......back breaking hugs must be added too.  So many wonderful memories, so many laughs, so many hugs and kisses, cards and letters filled with stickers.  Flo, you will NEVER be forgotten and always loved.

To Flo & Gil's children,

I am Gil's cousin. I remember him and Flo when they were young.
My mother was Gil's Aunt Olive.  They visited us from time to time.
Your Mom was always very warm and friendly to us. Your Dad,
what can I say, "That wonderful smile".
Please accept my sympathy.
I will miss them also.

I'm so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing.  She was a warm and caring woman who always loved her family.  I have kept in touch with her every Christmas for the last 50 or more years.  My Mother Olive Pellicciotti was your Grandfather's(Ephraim Lennon) sister.  Your parents visited us often in Newburgh when we were all young.
You Mother always sent me her love and blessings.  I will truly miss her.

My dear Lennon family-- My deepest sympathies to all of you- how she will be missed! What a great lady and example your mom was. She was always like a second mother to me--she cared for me like one of her own and always called me daughter #4. :) Even though our paths never crossed after I moved away, I could ALWAYS count on a birthday card anda christmas card every year from her- always addressed to Doris #4. The memories and love I have of her and all of you will always be treasured in my heart. Hold on to the memories - they will carry you through! Praying for all of you as i know the pain will run deep having lost my own dear mom less than year ago. Love and hugs to youall.
