We are deeply saddened to hear about Aunt Etta's passing. Every time we would see her she always made us feel Welcome, like part of the family. We have only ever known her as 'Aunt' Etta because she was always so kind and thoughtful to our family. Her presence and her genuine smile will be very missed. Our sincerest condolences to the family.
With Love Michela Manzanares & family

Will miss my dear cousin who always had a kind word and a loving heart. A true blooded OMalley who brought a bit of Ireland to me by just saying hello. God bless you, and the Saints take you in hand. ☘️
