Memories Timeline


  1. I would like to give my regards to the Raia family for their loss. In times like these, the scriptures can comfort our grieving hearts. Please note the words of John 5:28-“Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear HIS voice and come out…” Jay D.

  2. Pamela,

    Just received your holiday card and kind note. I was crushed by the news. Tony meant a great deal to me. Please let me know how to reach you. I am sorry that I did not learn of this until after the service. I would have surely flown in to pay my respects. I am on LinkedIn and FaceBook in case that is an easy way for us to connect and exchange phone numbers. Much love. Richard Katz
