Dorothy Levitas Obituary

Our Families Say:
Dear Paul and Anna - When you took our choices and put them into action (I am an OCD perfectionist) I could not have orchestrated the whole process better if I had directed it myself. You went above and beyond. It was phenomenal. I mean phenomenal!!!

"Personally, I think you both have really answered your true calling in life, to help us deal with the death of a loved one."
Sincerely, Terry Vinning

Anna and Paul - I cannot begin to express my gratitude for everything you have done. Your help and support have been such a blessing during this difficult time. Despite my loss, I am grateful to have gained two friends.
With love, Aree Peterson

Dear Paul and Anna - There are not enough words to thank you both. You are very special to me and I will never forget and will always be grateful to the both of you.
Very Truly Yours

Dear Paul & Anna - We cannot begin to express our gratitude to both of you for all you did to make the passing of Mom easier for us to get through. Every aspect was perfect, from making the arrangements, to making mom beautiful, to decorating with mom's things, the funeral and graveside. We will never forget your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time in our lives.
Cindy and John Belsito

In Sorrow, Paul Panesa

Dear Paul and Anna - Jeff's passing was as much a shock for you both, as for our family. Your kind, caring ways; your gentle guidance through those first few days after his death and ultimately through the calling hours and funeral – you both never failed to be there when we needed you and continue to do so now. Our community is extremely fortunate to have you here to respond and assist families at such difficult times.
Joanne Fredenberg and Family

Paul and Anna - Thank you for all you did to make sure Harold was laid to rest with lots of love and dignity. I appreciate your kind, courteous and professional service.
Love, Dolores Leonard

Dear Paul and Anna - I just would like to thank you for your kindness that you gave to my husband John, during these sad times of losing both of his parents. The professionalism that you showed was outstanding but most of all your compassion and caring meant so much to us all.
Blessings & Prayers, Nancy & John Napoleon
