Dear Pacella Family, I was very saddened to read of Dee's passing. I met her years ago when she became an aid to a child in my daughter's first grade class. She traveled all through elementary school with my daughter's class, and I worked with her as a teacher. She was warm and loving, a woman with such a strong faith. You boys were blessed to have her and your father as parents. I know you will all miss her greatly, but it is true that she will live on in your memories and in your hearts. My prayers are with you all. May God be with you and may you feel His presence, strength, and comfort.

Dee was the most wonderful person who entered the lives of Frankie and I. She taught us both so very much. But most of all she taught us family and faith are the most important foundations of a happy life. She referred to Frankie as her 5 th son words could never express the gratitude and admiration I have for her. I am deeply saddened but she is in a better place, at peace. She truly was an Abel on earth now called home. Much love to Chris, Jon, Jake and Josh Lynne and Frankie

Words cannot express our deepest sympathies. Your mom was very special lady, who loved her family with all of her heart. She was not only a wonderful neighbor, but a friend & prayer partner. We were truly blessed to have had the privilege of having her in our lives. Her transition truly leaves a hole in our hearts, but we also know, she is safe & at peace with our Lord and Savior. We love you all.

There was a message Dee repeated to me over and over. It was "Don't ever take your husband for granted. Appreciate every moment with him and love him as much as you possibly can every minute of every day because you never know when it will be the last day with him here on earth." I know this came out of her experience and aching heart for Sal. What she didn't realize was that all the while she was repeating this message to me over a period of years, God was working to restore my marriage. My husband and i have a very strong marriage now. But i can say that over the years Dee's words came to mind many, many times and i'm sure will continue. I miss her very much at work. Just to have a sister in Christ around the workplace is very needed. Her service was so very Christ centered and God honoring. It also displayed the great love and honor she received from her sons. She was a blessed woman!

Dear Pacella family......I was deeply saddened when I found out about your mom's passing. She was a great lady that I worked with in the Beaver Falls school district. We had such fun working together! She truly loved you boys and her wonderful Sal ( who was such an awesome person). I know that she is happy with the Lord ....and Sal is by her side. She'll be guiding you from above. My sincerest condolences............Joline Pawlack
