My Great Grandma was a great lady. I remember every time I came over to her house we would play zingo. Which is a much better game of bingo. She hated any fights so when the game got intense and there was yelling, she would yell "Ayyyy!" I remember she onetime hid money inside her bathroom clock! It was a fifty dollar bill! It was so funny because she pretended she didn't even know about it. But I remeber on her last days, one of my last memories was after I said my last goodbyes, I held her hand, and gave her a kiss on her forehead. And I knew she would be in a better place. Love you Nonna!

My dear Godmother Aunt Mary will be greatly missed. Great memories growing up and Kathy and I were just reflecting on our yearly visits to Florida and the delicious pasta dishes she would make for the family. All of our children looked forward to that visit.
She now is joined with her loving husband and my Godfather Mario as well as her sister Rose and brothers John and Nick.
God Bless you and may you rest in peace.

Some of my favorite memories of Aunt Mary came from our family visits to Florida playing hours of May I, our family card game. Uncle Mario was saving a card that he knew Aunt Mary needed, when the round ended he revealed the card and I will never forget her reaction and the roaring laughter of all of us at the table.

We will miss you Aunt Mary, thank you for the years of great love and lasting memories ☺️💕

I had a lot of good times with Mary. She’s my bingo buddy. I don’t speak Italian but somehow we understood each other. Beautiful lady with a big heart. Never a dull moment. My condolences to her family. She will be missed.
