  1. On behalf of the entire Aldasch family I would like to extend my deepest heart felt sympathies to the entire Crisafulli family and especially to Fred for the loss of your sister in law Mary. Although I never knew Mary Fred all spoke very highly of his brothers wife and held her in great esteem. I know there are no words that can be said to heal your sorrow but I hope you may take solice in knowing that she lived a long full life and is now in the care of the lord and is reunited with her husband Charles. May the lord assuage your anguish and pain in this time of loss.
    Respectfully Yours,
    Mark Aldasch & Family
