    My deepest sympathy and love to the Tintari family and friends.  Miss Mary was a warm, loving and gracious lady who extended kindness to everyone she knew.  She was a devoted religous women who loved her family. She was beloved my her late husband Frank, late son Carl, and devoted daughter Mary Kay.  She was a women of great strength despite her loss due, in no small part, to the love, care and devotion her her daughter Mary Kay.  Miss Mary treated me like family and I loved her for that.  From baking and mailing me my annual Italian Christmas cookies, to teaching me how to make her special Easter jello fruit eggs, to sewing me pink satin pillowcases, knitting me potholders, introducing me to cauliflower mash potatoes and vegatarian rubens (during the 1970s), and our group rosary prayers via telephone calls, she showed me love.  She lovingly held and rocked my infant daughter and was kind to her during our visits throught out the years.  My daugher referred to Miss Mary as the lady who lived in the pink house.  I will alway cherish my memories of her love and feel blessed that she was a part of my life.  Her greatest gift to the world are her children, the late Dr. Carl and her amazing daughter Mary Kay.

    Love you Miss Mary,

    Blonde Archerio (Anne)

    John and I extend our deepest sympathy to Mary's family.  She was such a wonderful woman who celebrated the good times in life and faced the bad with grace.  I knew Mary since I was a little girl and her kindness and congeniality were welcome qualities whenever we would talk on the phone.  She is in a better place; God Bless You, Mary and rest in deserved peace.
