  • All our love Missy, Tony and families. Sooo many stories and great times with Linda we loved her very much. She was a big part of me and Marsha getting together. I would ask Linda if I could close when Marcie did, thinking she was clueless. Few months later she would say, with her head down and eyes glaring over her readers, “you better marry her”. And I did! Just one of many good stories I have of Linda. We both are very grateful to of had the privilege of not only working for Linda but the Dipetro family! (Best job we ever had)
    She will always be remembered and loved by us. God Bless

    So sorry for the loss of your mother. Prayers are being said for you and your family🙏🙏. May the Risen Lord be with you and your family during this most difficult time! I could always talked with your mom. Her and I had good chats! Sending hugs!

  • Dear Missy, Tony & families,

    Sending our deepest condolences on the passing of your wonderful mother and my beloved Aunt Linda. Words cannot express my deepest regards for your mother. In “the early days” she provided security, acceptance, guidance and love. She and my Uncle Fred not only provided delicious meals and the ultimate hang out at The Pizza Villa – they were a home away from home to not only me, but to hundreds of others.

    Aunt Linda would “tell it like it is”, and for that, I learned to value those who spoke the truth in love. I loved that she smiled a LOT & loved a good joke and liked to laugh. I love that she loved the song “Midnight Train To Georgia” and encouraged creative expression.

    Mostly, I loved to see the sparkle in her eyes whenever she looked or spoke of Uncle Fred and her children! They were her world. And witnessing that love – I learned that although one can work very hard, follow their goals and achieve success – it is meaningless without the love of family and friends.

    I take great comfort in knowing Aunt Linda was surrounded physically & in spirit by that deep love.

    Thank you for sharing your incredible mom and dad with all of us. I can truly say I do not where I would be today without them and their example, mentorship and unconditional love.

    With Love,

    Linda (Bernabei), Darryl and Renata Retter

  • Tony and family.

    Your Mom and Dad both were such kind people. Delaware lost some treasures.

    My prayers are with you all.
