Sending our prayers to the Gentile family; she was an outstanding wife and mother; always smiling --devoted Catholic and a very giving person to our children at St. Jude's Hospital.......Like her husband---both were so given to St. Jude's during my telethons and radiothons over the pasted 30 years..........I most admired how they shared their love to their children and grandchildren and how they would reach out to everyone in time of need.....May she rest in peace; now with her husband in heaven and blessings to the children and grandchildren; job well done !!!! above all---thank you---for remembering the children at St. Jude's at this hour!!!!!!!!!
