    To the Aurelio family:

    I heard this morning of your mother's passing; please accept my belated sympathy.  I will always remember her standing at the podium along with your father's mother; our Friday evenings in the 1970's having (the finest) pizza are engrained in all of our memories.  She was a wonderful hostess as well as a wonderful wife and mother.  I hope your wonderful memories of her will brighten your days for years to come.  

    With deepest sympathy,

    Scott Arquilla
