    Dear Family of Aileen,
    Please accept my condolences on the passing of Aileen. My late husband Bill Rinaldi attended Tech with Aileen and was friendly with her, particularly concerning the Deutsch where my husband was on the Board of Directors. Aileen was always cheerful with us and always shared her smile. May she rest in peace.

  2. Dear family and loved ones of Aileen,

    I was so deeply saddened to hear about Aileen’s death and am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences. I had the privilege of visiting with her regularly as she resided with a parishioner of St. Luke’s whom I would call on weekly to administer Holy Communion. Aileen was always kind, respectful, and greeted me warmly with a big smile that filled the room. She joined us in our brief weekly services and it was so apparent that she was a woman of deep devotion and faith. While not a parishioner of St. Luke’s, she was a dear friend to us and we would frequently bring her cards, goodies, and holiday gifts from the parish. She will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon her.

    In peace,
    The Reverend Rebecca A. Barnes
