Hello, we were Otter Lake neighbors. Laura was so very nice and easy-going. We had many little kids running around and she always told us how much she loves it. She had a gentle and warm energy. Positive thoughts to your whole family.

Elaine, JoAnn, and Gloria you probably don't remember me but I am Uncle Joe and Aunt Rose's son. We lived on Hubbell a block from your house on Jay Street. I am very sorry for your loss and she had the honor of being the last of the Borgia Clan. Caught up with her and Aunt Paula a while ago thanks to my wife and had at least a little time with both of them and remembered some of the old days and I have a few memories of recent times as well. Miss you guys and hope someday we can meet again as well.
Dick and Janis Borgia
To all my cousins you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Carolyn
