Dear Girolami family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Elizabeth. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart. Additional Bible based comfort can be found at jw.org Search:Comfort.

It is with sadness that we learned the passing of Aunt Lizzie. As a young boy, I spent a summer or 2 in Hamilton with Lizzie and Henry. What a great memory I have of going to ballgames and Coney Island. What a wonderful and long life she lived with a loving family.

I was blessed to know and love Grandma Girolami. She was always very sweet to me and made me feel like one of her own. That's why I've always called her Grandma even though I'm only a close friend of the family. I send my love and condolences to all. Stephanie
