I wish to extend my sincerest best wishes to all of Del’s family at the time of her passing. I have fond memories of her filling in on Thursday night’s with her husband Joe at Joe’s Food Store in Albany. The last time I saw her and Joe together was at her husband’s 50th Reunion at Siena College. (Several years graduating classes celebrated together.)

I knew Mrs. Belfiore when I was a child and I used to deliver their newspaper. More recently, she was living just down the hall from my Dad and I would see her and help her whenever possible while visiting him. She was a wonderful lady who I missed seeing once the facility closed. My thoughts are with her son and his family.
Mary Beth, Steve and Stevie,
I just want you to know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May your memories of the life you shared with her bring you peace and smiles. Love, Jody
