  1. To Mrs. Immig and Rosemary,

    It is with true heavy heart that I heard and have read about Mr. Immig’s passing. I think back to the days I first met you all at Stop and Shop, I met a truly loving, caring and inspiring family – one that opened their arms to a cashier and fellow parishoner. It was with true form that we were to be connected, discovering that Mr. Immig’s alma mater was my sister’s (I’ll never forget his hat!) as well as our connection through Emmanuel College.

    Know that though time has passed, I think of you all often. You are in my thoughts and prayers most especially at this difficult time. Think of those great memories and hold them close – I know I will!

    Warmest Regards,
    Sabrina
