  1. Barb, I am so sad to see that your Mother has passed away. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Garavaglia family. Jim, your mom and dad gave so much to so many. What a long and wonderful life lived. They left behind a great family legacy.

  3. My sympathy and prayers to the family. Josie was an amazing woman, and together with Quinn, a blessing to so many, especially on The Hill. I have visions of her busying herself with all that went into the flea market in the basement of the church!
    A faith-filled, faithful woman.
    May she rest in peace

  4. Frequented Their local neighborhood store , Mrs Jo was always happy to see a child come in and visit .
    May the family find comfort in knowing she is now with he Quinn.

  5. Our sympathies to the family. She was a lovely woman who made an impact on many a person who visited the store on Lafayette! Her and Tony lived their faith everyday. May she rest in peace.
