Dear Brovelli Family, I am sending my deepest condolences in the loss of dear Vasco and Pauline. I met Vasco at St. Marys when I worked there. He had worked with my deceased father in law Ralph Stenquist at GM and was delighted to recognize my last name and share stories of working with him. What a gift that was to my family & I. His smile, and caring way was a gift to all who knew him. And how beautifully he always professed his love for his dear Pauline. Such a great loss for you, but how perfect that they are once again together in God's loving arms. God bless you all. Cathy Stenquist

I was deeply saddened to hear of Vascos passing. Over.the past 17 years both he and Pauline have become dear, dear friends of mine and I love them both so much. I pray for the entire Brovelli family and thank Stephen for keeping me updated and for his friendship. I pray that Pauline will come through this. How Vasco adored her and the rest of his family. Rest in peace my dear friend. I will miss you always.

We send our condolences to Vasco's bride of 71 years and to Stephen, Nancy, Debbie and his grandchildren. Oh, how he loved you! I am so blessed to have worked with Vasco for all those wonderful years at ST. Mary's. Memories flood my mind accompanied with smiles and tears of joy that Vasco is reunited with his sons Wayne and David. Each of you now has another 'saint' to pray to. He always will be with you and interceding for you. God will say "yes". Vasco had that way about him that persuaded folks to say yes when he was interceding for others. We will miss you, dear Vasco. We continue to pray for Pauline.

Sincerest condolences to the entire Brovelli family, but especially to Stephen, who I remember well from High School. You are fortunate to have been able to enjoy so many years with your dad, but I know his passing will leave an emptiness that will only be filled by the wonderful memories you shared.
