Dear Jaime, Ryan, Sara and Drew -as well as Carmine, Jamie and Dara - and all of your families...this world has lost a beautiful loving woman. Her family was of the utmost importance to her. Actually there was nothing more important to her than all of you. You are all in my heart and in my thoughts. I am so very very sad. We spent countless hours together as teenagers talking about all our hopes and dreams. I am thankful for having her in my life - yes too short, but she is with her love finally. I know each and every one of you will continue to make her so proud. I love you all.....Rest in peace my beautiful friend. Wendy Calnero Wojdyla Aug 12, 2013
Dear Jamie, Ryan, Sara and Drew, Our hearts are broken by Deanna's passing. We will miss your Mom's infectious laugh and her favorite greeting "Hi my darlings!" Keeping you in our thoughts and praying for healing and comfort. Sincerely,
To Deanna's family, I am so sad to see the passing of Deanna. I will always remember the vacation yrs prior with Ron, Deanna and fellow KY members. Great time and memories! God bless all of you and our hearts go out to you. Although sad for us we know through faith that Deanna and Ron are together again.
To Dara, Jamie, Carmine, Jaime, Sara, Ryan, and Drew - I cannot begin to express my sorrow at such a great loss. To my dear friend Deanna, I'll always be thankful we met that day in the RFA auditorium - Fall of 1970. I will love you always, "Tood"
