Memories

I remember June and Jane in my life since I was a child, as far back as I can remember, as well as the rest of her family, even g-ma Anne and g-pa Bosco. So saddened by her death. They were more like family then friends. I will miss her giggles and smiles and card playing antics! Now she can meet up with Jane once more, and the twins will be together again at last. I will miss her as much as the rest of my family will, especially my mother who was like a sister to them though all of their lives. May they all welcome her to heaven, have a reunion together, and rest in peace. Good bye June... Say hi to pappy Bob for me! You take care Seco! With love and hugzzzzz and fond memories, Terry

Seco and Family - I was sorry to hear about June. I had been thinking about her this past month and waiting for nice weather to drive down to Faribault to visit her. I am sure you all have a great void in your life but remember that she had a good life with all of you. Sincerely, Bev London (Morse) Minneapolis, MN

Uncle Seco, Roy, and Sandy: We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Aunt June. Our thoughts and prayers are will all of you. May the love of family and friends help you through this difficult time. I will always remember Auntie June telling me that us "Finnish Women" had to stick together as her and I had married the "Varani Italian Men". We always laughed about this. May you always remember the good times you shared, and know that a part of her will be with you forever. May God Bless You and Keep You by his side. Take Care..........
