Domingo Abel Acevedo

June 17, 1982

If you only knew how I sigh to see you again!

Even tho at the tender age of 5 you were taken from me I remember you as if it were yesterday you where an amazing father you have left a huge imprint in my heart, soul and mind everyone I have come in contact with I tend to measure them to you to see if they're as outstanding you once where! You were so out going, fun, loving full of life everyone you came in contact with loved the man and father that you were! I miss those tender moments that we shared I remember after my bath how I used to stand in front of the fan to comb my hair and how you used to watch me with so much love, joy and pride! Since you were taken from me my life was turned upside down and I went thru hell and back and I believe I still stand here firm & strong is because even in death I know you still protect your little girl and for God giving me you as my daddy I'm forever grateful thru you I know how a man should treat me with the same love and respect you have given me! Love always your Princess Mimi aka Gladys Acevedo

Robert Patrick Curley

1931 -2002

Your memory lives with my every heartbeat.

Dear Robert, I drove down from Maine last weekend to visit the kids. Twenty of us went to dinner on my birthday. We all talked about what it was like when you were around. I felt so good and then so sad. However, the next day I went to the cemetery where we first took the walk and held hands all those years ago. It's so pretty there. I am back now at our home in Maine. William and Elizabeth are coming up for the Memorial Day Weekend with all six kids. It will be such fun. By now love, Buzzy

Who but God can give me strength?

The other day I visited Restland and with Carol's little Mary. She is seven now. I told her the story of how we first met and were married in the chapel at the cemetery in 1953. I showed her where we stood and said "I do" to each other and hoped that some day she too would find the perfect someone like you. Then I ran into this fellow whose name excapes me for now but he was so helpful to me and he shared with me some of the things the cemetery is doing to make the place so beautiful. He also told me how I can write to you and share my thoughts on the cemetery website with my very own personal expressions. Mary is going to write too. We love you Henry my darling. Mary

Let's say 'thanks' before we eat.

Hi, grand daddy, Mimi and I were out to see you and put flowers by your name. I put the water in the metal vase and said my prayers for you and everyone. Love you, Mary

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.

How Blest the Righteous When He Dies! When Sinks a Weary Soul to Rest. How Mildly Beam the Closing Eyes! How Gently Heaves the Epiring Breast

Philip Insabella

1907 - 1987

The LORD is my shepard; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteous for his name's sake. 

All of our stories about Dad are filled love, warmth, laughter and his devotion to his family. Dad was a wonderful parent, husband, brother, and grandparent to his "Cori." We've missed Dad for so long, always wondering what he would say or do in our life's situations. He is always in our hearts and thoughts...We love you, Dad. 

Aubrey Olivia Jarrett-Young

November 19,1989 - November 19,1989

It's hard to believe that it's been almost 29 years since you spread your wings to fly with the angels. I often wonder what you would have grown up to become?, what life would be like with you here? I know you would be beautiful, even more beautiful than your mom, smart, ambitious, successful, loving. My little angel, just know that we think about you EVERYDAY. You're gone but NEVER forgotten and we will see you again one day. Until then, continue to smile down on us and protect us. WE ALL LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU. 

Donald Jonach

November 2, 1921 - January 12, 2006

"We we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us." Helen Keller

Missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.

Missing you on a daily basis. Peter Kearney, Jr. 

Anne Klos

December 10, 1944 - June 17, 2005

I'll never forget the day last winter when my sister Anne and I took our grandchildren sledding in at the local park. Her grandson and granddaughter were both under age 7 and my twin granddaughters were 5. We dressed the children in their warm outerwear and took our sleds to the park. At first, my granddaughters were a little weary about riding down the hill on a wooden sled, but with the agility of a teenager, Anne sat down on the sled and took off down the hill to show the girls what fun it would be. Her laughter sounded like beautiful music echoing from the hills as she glided along. All of the children enjoyed the day of sledding and when we returned to the car, Anne had a thermos of hot cocoa, complete with miniature marshmallows, ready to warm us. That's the way she was. I miss her dearly.

July 27, 1901 - February 14, 2009 (Interment)

Do not worry. Things have a way of working themselves out.

In 1960, our family had to leave Cuba because of the communist regime. I was heartbroken to have to leave grandma behind. Grandma was always the optimist. She said that she would join us shortly. In the meantime, we both could look at the moon at night. It would be like we were both looking at each other. Two years later, we were all reunited making that one of the happiest days in my life. Now, when I look at the moon, I know she will be right there beside it watching over us. Rita Liu

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Even though we were separated by an entire continent, we would email each other on occasion. I would always start off with how the weather was back east. We especially shared a lot of emails when 911 occurred. I regret, that as time went by our email frequency became less and less. But, there is a lot of good memories. Expecially Christmas time, and our trips to Lake Paulenskill. Visits to Valley Household when we were little. My brother and I would love to play store. We'd pretend we were answering the phones, and fixing appliances.

May, 1951-December, 1994

The Lord is my Shepherd

He was a devoted, wonderful father and husband. A great humanitarian who touched many lives. Upon his early death people came from everywhere to tell the wonderful things he did for them. He never told anyone what he was doing for others. As he did all these wonderful things he turned people toward God. He has left a wonderful story among everyone that knew him. Angela Vargas
