I’m not sure if you remember me; I am Valeria‘s daughter and Jim‘s sister. I was going through some papers today and found a letter that your mother had written to me after my mom died. I tried to contact her, and found that she just died this week. Your mother was a great lady, and a good friend to my mother. Please except my sympathy for your loss.

To Louise and her entire family, I send my sincere condolences on the passing of Mrs. Meneghini. I knew Dr. Meneghini well as one of his patients. To Louise, again I offer you our prayers of consolation. May she rest in peace.

I met Elizabeth's daughter Louise in 1972 through St. Margaret Mary Church. Elizabeth offered to take Louise, my sister Linda and I to the Indianapolis 500 Qualifications. We had the best time, laughing and making some great memories. In the mid 70's I accepted a position with Elizabeth's husband Dr. Angelo Meneghini. In the 8 years I worked for Dr. Meneghini, Elizabeth was always kind and caring. One of her most obvious qualities was her beautiful smile. I will miss Elizabeth, she was a beautiful woman. Sending our love to Louise.
