Online Condolences


  1. My deepest sympathy for your loss. What seems to be a long life is never long enough where our loved ones are concerned. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. That is why He has promised to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises be a soothing balm for your grieving hearts.

  2. Deepest condolences to the entire Coppolino family. Josie was such a pleasure to be around. She will be missed.

  3. My sincere sympathy for the loss of your Mother. The bible calls death an enemy and when it takes those we love, it truly is.
    The bible gives a wonderful hope that God will remember our dead loved ones and will bring them back to life on earth. Jo 5:28,29 Ps 37:11,29.
    Soon God will wipe away all tears of sorrow and death and pain will be gone forever. Rev 21:3,4
    May you find comfort in these promises.

  4. Dear cousin Louis and family, our condolences on the passing of Aunt Jo. She will finally be joining Uncle Louie, and may they both be together and rest in peace. She lived long and was able to enjoy not only grandchildren, but great grandchildren!
    You are in our thoughts and prayers, Gerri and Tom Pullano
