Harlie LoPreato

Almost a month has passed since you've been gone and it hasn't gotten any easier. So often there's times where I think "I have to call Grandma and tell her", and not being able to call you is a heartbreaking realization every time. I would do anything in this world to hear you say "hey baby doll!" one more time. You looked at me each time with the same excitement and love in your eyes, and remembering that is what gets me through my hardest days when I miss you the absolute most.
As a little girl I would always think about how you'd be at my wedding one day. You were my super hero, of course I thought you were going to live forever. Knowing you wont be here for some of the most important moments in my life breaks my heart, but I know you are always watching. All you wanted was to be with Pop and your parents and I know you're ecstatic to be up in Heaven with them. I'm sure you're happy, healthy, young and beautiful, and I'm sure you're up there dancing like you used to love to do. I hope they have a big soaking tub up there for you, God knows you love your baths.
You always told me that I was your everything, so I got that tattooed on my arm in your handwriting so that every time I look down I think of you. I'm so glad you got to see it. You were truly my bestfriend and my everything as much as I was yours.
I miss you more and more every day. It never gets easier without you here with me but one day we will be together again and I can't wait to see your beautiful face.
I love you with all of my heart, but you already know that.

Dear Ms. Marlene, I will always remember how you loved me unconditionally during my adolescent years. The lessons you taught me through cooking, cleaning, and how to create a family will always be greatly cherished in my heart. Rest easy and I hope you are back with Mr. Nicky!! Love Always, Patty Beckmann.

I have so many good memories growing up on W. 23rd St. With Marlene. I will miss seeing her this summer sitting outside in front of her house, saving my parking spot with her chair, and no one better move it either. Marlene wouldn’t have that! She was such a caring, giving person. Always trying to feed everyone , whether she knew you or not. I am truly blessed to have grown up with such a beautiful lady. I practically lived at her house. I’m so sorry Valerie, Vici & Nicky. & family I love you all & you are in my prayers. She will be truly missed. A big part of 23 rd street is gone now, and will never be the same. R.I.P Marlene. I will never forget you. 💕💕💕
