    My heart felt sympathy goes out to Henrietta's family whom she lived so dearly.. I worked as an aid at Woodcrest Elementary in PNGISD with her & her love of her family & the students was evident all the time. She was had the sweetest disposition of any teacher I've ever met & was so helpful to me in getting my degree to teach. I lost touch with her but seeing the video was such a joy; seeing her surrounded by the family she adored. I know Heaven is rejoicing in her being there.

    Ms. Satchitano was truly a beautiful person. Always, God’s light shown in her. She prepared my granddaughter for her First Communion, and just recently contributed to the St. Joseph Altar given by our family. Her kindness and love will always be remembered.

    Ms. Sanchitano was a beautiful person. I will truly miss having conversations with her at CCD. She was very faithful in teaching and preparing our Assumption children for his/her Reconciliation and First Communion. She will be greatly missed.
