Messages of Condolence

  1. Mom will truly and greatly be missed. She was a sacrificing and loving mother that thought of us and others before herself. I look forward to the day we will be re-united. Until then my love and appreciation to her.

  2. If there was a window looking into Heaven, I know I would see you there, dancing with Dad. I would see the wonderful reunion you would be enjoying with Grampa, Gramma, Aunt Mamie, your brothers, and your sister, to whom you never had the chance to say good-bye. I will miss you so much every day that I spend here without you…but I know that when we see each other again, our reunion will be just as sweet as all the beauty you are experiencing there now. I love you, Mom, and I am so thankful that God gave me to YOU. Forever, and until we meet again!

  3. To My Brothers and Sisters,
    This is truly with a sad heart that I have to write this, and I know that we all have to meet this time in our life eventually. I am so grateful that the Lord has given us such a wonderful, wise, and strong woman to watch over and care for us through the years. She has taught me many things that have formed me into the man that I am today. Most importantly she has taught me Love for others. I love all of you and I will miss her so much. The thing that gives me great comfort is knowing that she is reunited with her mother, father and dad in the Glory of Christ’s Love. Mom, thank you for your Love in this life.

  4. Mom was an inspiration and example to all people she knew, the love she shared was truly unconditional and there is no way I can express how much I will personally miss her. She was the greatest mother I could have asked for.

    What a Blessing it was…
    To know my mother
    To have her hold me when I was too young to know
    You were always there to pick me up when I fell
    To wipe away tears and calm fears
    To show me how to love when it wasn’t easy
    Teaching unconditional love
    You were a beacon of light to all who knew you
    Showing that richness in life means is more than material
    To be taught how to live in this world with strength and love
    And be shown how to pass from this world to the next with grace dignity and peace.
    Mother you will be missed beyond any words that can be spoken
    And a hole will remain till we are reunited
    Till then I will never forget all that you have helped me to become
    I am happy you are home and at peace
    God is smiling, now that one of his precious daughters is home
    I am truly blessed to call you MOM

  5. To the family of Frances Ann Zingalie.You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of someone so dear. The Bible message at (John 5:28,29) can be a great comfort at this time in that it speaks of a “resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous”. Our Creator Jehovah God also reveals a promise at (Revelation 21:4) ” And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May this Bible message be of comfort for you.

  6. Grams was always always there to talk when I needed advice or to just chat about nothing…. You told me you and Gramps would be looking down on us and it means everything To know you are forever our guardian angel. I know you are dancing in a vineyard with grandpa up there celebrating the happiest day being reunited with the love of your life…. I miss you so much it brings tears to my eyes but I look forward to seeing you again… even though you told me you wanted me to lose my first fight so I wouldn’t want to do it anymore, I know I got a fighters heart from you and grandpa who passed it to my mother, and then to me. My fights will always be dedicated to you and grandpa ❤️ Love you forever Grammy

  7. I did not know this beloved woman. I do have the great fortune of calling her granddaughter, Natalie, my friend. My deepest sympathies to all of you who knew and loved her. I can imagine the wonderful qualities I see in her granddaughter and great grandkids are a result of the love and affection she shared with her family, as my grandmother shared with mine. I am so sorry for the loss you’ve suffered, I pray for peace for both the living and departed.

  8. Kleenex box is at my side…beautiful words brothers & my sister… Mom, I miss you so much already, called your cell phone just to hear your voice, whew! I am so very thankful we all had time to spend with you & hear your heart regarding life and us. I’m grateful that we had time to share our hearts with you as well. I will forever hold onto our time shared in the car on the other side of a table in a restaurant, over the phone or at our homes.. & mom, I am happy that you are together again with others you have loved over the rainbow. Beautiful, sweet, fun, loving you will be missed from the bottom of my heart, but I will also rejoice for your birth into heaven into a new life and body. Love you always.

  9. Momma Z was a very special lady!! Even though she didn’t berth me, she always treated me as one of her own. She has been a true inspiration in my life and she will truly be missed. All of my love and heartfelt condolences go out to the Zingalie family. We were all truly lucky to have her in our lives!!

  10. I am absolutely praying for each and every person in your family. Although I did not know her that well, Erica told me many stories about how beautiful of a person she was. It is a testament to her character to see the amazing family that she created. Her blessings to the world will live on forever. Her legacy will never be forgotten! With love, Luke.

  13. Don and I have known Fran (and Carl) for 45yrs. They came to our wedding 43 yrs ago. They were friends of ours before we even hung with the Zingalie kids, and we laughed a lot. Their house was the place to just hang out at, day or night, and we did. We spent many summer evenings on their porch. Fran typed my term papers for nursing school. She came over when we moved to our house in 7 Hills and helped us get settled in. We have so many good memories of them both. I will miss Fran, she was a true friend, and loved the Lord a lot. We look forward to seeing them both again some day, and we’ll laugh together once more. Our blessings and love to all the Zingalie family. Don and Donna

  14. I love you my dear sweet Fran. You have been such a wonderful friend to me, and to so many others as well. I will miss you deeply. You are now with God, at peace with no pain and suffering. My prayers are with the Zingalie family during this difficult time.

    With all my love,
    Angie Bova and family

  15. What a dear ,great lady she was. She was like a second mom to my son Anthony Salerno. It became the family joke that we still had not had lunch together. We will someday. Love and prayers to the family.

  16. I’ll remember your kind soul and spirituality. You leave behind many friends that loved you dearly. You will be truly missed.

  17. Dear Tony & Gracie –
    Our sincere condolences and love to you as you mourn your mother. It was wonderful to be able to meet her during her stays in Michigan. Her love for her family was beautiful and she shone with the light of Christ in her heart. We trust that the Lord will comfort you in the coming weeks. God bless you and keep you.

  18. My heart breaks for all of “Miss Frannies” Family and friends but, at the same time it brings a smile to my face to have been blessed to have known such a selfless, kind, and beautiful woman…Rest peacefully sweet lady, but, before you do, like your family said, …” Dance with Dad”…

  19. Fran, you were my sons second mom and I thank God for you. Your house was his second home and I know he learned so much there with Gods grace present. You taught me a great deal about being a Catechist in the Catholic Church. Because of you, I did become one while living in Texas. Thank you God for putting Fran and Carl in my life. I know they are smiling and praising God continuously now.
