Butch, Eric, Billy and Patty,
I’m sorry for your loss. Irene was such a very nice person. When I was a Freshman in High School, Irene was a Senior. She introduced me to her friend “Budda” who was in his 5th or 6th year of High School. She said to him, “This is my cousin Mike Pellizzari. You be nice to him”. First and last time I saw that gentleman. I’m sure her introduction save me a couple of “Just because” butt-kickings.
Butch,Eric,Billy and Patty,
It’s so hard to come up with comforting words at this time of sorrow.
Chris and I and our children give you our deepest sympathyChristina Balduzzi
It has been awhile since we last saw her and have a lot of fond memories.
Wishing you all well.
Love Jim and Chris Balduzzi
