Arlene, I read of your Mother’s passing away.
Through you and your sister, as a mother,
You can be assured that your mom enjoyed every day of your lives. Good or troubled. And giving her grandchildren was a great achievement, I’m sure she has told you and your sister this many times. Remember the good memories and pass them on to your children, grandchildren! Your Mother is home now.

Arlene, and the family who all loved Pat Telesco.
As caregivers that we are Arlene, it’s still very hard to accept our own parents’ demise.
Since we have known each other( 1982) long time, I will remember meeting your mom and dad. Very quiet folks. Well , your dad was! Obstacles you faced were all comforted to you by mom! My condolences, may mom be out of pain and at peace!

To: Gene and entire family,
I was sorry to hear of Pat's passing. Though we didn't see each other much, and I'm not quite sure how that happened, I used to see her quite often At Riccardo's Market. I will always remember as a wonderfully warm person.
Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless, Buddy Kays

I am so sorry to read about Pat's passing and Kay's also. I remember what a great family you had/have. Being so far away and losing contact has always been hard. I remember my mother's closeness to all of you and your parents and aunts and uncles. Most of all the hilarity and joyfulness they shared. I always wished my children had the opportunity to know their cousins.
God bless all of you and may you rest in peace Pat.

Gene & family, We were so sad to hear of Pat's death. I was looking forward to seeing her at our 60th reunion. We were great friends at Dunmore High. I am still in shock. One sure does not know from day to day. I have great memories from school and our emails. God Bless you Gene and you are in my prayers daily. All my love, Cathy and Bill Huff.

To Pat’s family,
I bowled with Pat and enjoyed our after bowling snacks. She was a wonderful person. I am deeply saddened by her passing. May perpetual light shine upon her. With love, Karen
