Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Rodriguez as you were known to me, as I begin to write, I remember the times of laughter and tears we shared for many years, Alexander Linn, vacationing at the NJ shore, food and drinks in the back yards, although time and distance may have weathered the friendship my thoughts and prayers of and for you never faultered. You were a true angel indeed, you touched so many and I am fortunate that I was one. May God Bless and Keep you safe in the palm of His hand. Deepest Sympathy to all Her family and friends
My Dearest Friend, I can‚??t believe we have been friends for over 45 years. We have been through a lot together. You are so wise and smart. I will miss your wisdom. Gosh I‚??m still talking to you! I want to thank our Lord for all the days and years we had her in our lives. Thank you God for all the time she had as a mother, a wife, a grandmother, and a best friend. I am sure we would not be the loving caring people we are today without Daisy touching our lives. Always in our hearts and thoughts Daisy‚?¶.until we meet again in Gods Kingdom. Your Best Girlfriend‚?¶.Love you! Laura

Jack and Dora and families, I am so sorry for your loss, wish I could have gone to her service but the stomach bug kept me home. Daisy was a very special lady, she was always happy and smiling no matter what she was going through. I hope that you find comfort with some of your memories, she will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace Daisy
