    Aida was so much a part of our family and a blessing to all of us. A welcoming loving person that I never heard say a negative word about anyone. She was gracious , kind and someone that made you feel loved. We will miss her. I’m first cousin to her husband Louie. His mother and my mother were sisters. My mom embraced Aida as another daughter and they worked together at Clara Mass Hospital in New Jersey. My mom and my dad loved her so very much because they saw the genuine person that she was. To Vanessa , Stephen, and my Marine brother Louie as well as Aida ‘s sisters , be proud of this wonderful women that graced all of our lives. Always Faithful Peter Gasiewicz

    Deepest sympathy to Lou, Vanessa and Steve, and all of Aida's family. She will be so missed. She was one of the most loving, kind, giving and welcoming people I have ever met. Truly inspirational. May you all find strength in bearing the grief of losing someone so special. Aida will never be forgotten, and her spirit will live on in all of you.

    My husband Danny and I met and became friends with Lou and Aida in 2019 when moved in next door to them in Leland. Aida was one of the most kind, friendly, gracious and caring people I have ever met. She always had a smile on her face and seemed to remain positive and hopeful all throughout her illness. My husband and I feel heartbroken at Aida’s passing. God took another “good one”, he often takes the best— Lou, Steve, and Vanessa surely have a guardian angel in Heaven. Aida will be missed very much. Love and prayers to all her family and friends.
