Michael and Maryann,
In the Loss of Your Mother
May the healing touch of time
Ease the sorrow that you bear,
Take it from your troubled heart
And leave warm memories there--
And may those cherished memories
Give you courage, strength and peace,
As you realize a love so great
Can never, never cease.

I am saddened by Angie's passing and express my condolences to my cousins and any other family members. It seems every year we lose a few more family members and we are saddened by that however we can keep them alive in our memories until it's our time to join them once again in Heaven. Due to work issues I will be unable to attend her service but I will certainly raise a glass and toast her life. Bill

Deepest condolence to the Abromitis family. I will always treasure the wonderful memories of Jack and Angie sitting side-by-side at the card table, Jack, the tough ex-soldier boy, and Angie, his classy "Babe". She lit up the room when she was surrounded by her family and friends and I will always feel fortunate to have known her.

Dear John, Mike, Maryann,and Jackie,
I have many fond memories of youthful days at the Abromitis house. We raised a little hell, had an abundance of good times, and shared many humorous moments, but the greatest memories are of the love your Mom always freely shared with family and friends. I am saddened by your loss but am grateful for the good fortune of having shared many important moments of my life with the Abromitis family.

I will never forget the first day I met both Jack and Angie. It was at the Smokehouse BBQ in Hackettstown to play free poker with me as the tournament director. I would always be greeted with a warm smile, and welcomed like family (which are all a wonderful reflection of them both). Loved them both and will miss them greatly. Say hi to Jack for me Angie. Hope to see you both again someday. God Bless the Abromitis family.
