Mommom was one of the most influential person in my life. One of the most important thing she taught me was loving. Mommom loved people fiercly, and although we can all agree she mostly showed it through shopping, she also showed it through her words and her hugs and kisses.
Some things I will never forget-
I will never forget her signature scent of coffee and Coach. I will never forget how many sweetners and cream she needed in her 1/2 water 1/2 coffe concoxtion. I will never forget her contagious laughter. I will never forget when she played “This Ones for the Girls” and she would get Raven to howl. And finally, I will never forget the many Christmas Eves we have all spent with her.
She will continue to influence me throughout my life and I am eternally grateful for that. We are all so blessed to have had such an amazing woman in all of our lives.
We love you Mommom, and we cannot wait to see you again.

When I think of my mom, laughter is the first thing that comes to my mind. She and I could really laugh together! I loved her wit and sarcasm. I’m going to miss that so much. I also will miss how much she loved her grandchildren. I’m so grateful for all the time she would come spend with me after I had my babies. She would clean my house, do laundry and make meals. It was a huge blessing! And she loved nothing more than to hold a new baby.
I can’t wait until we laugh together again in Heaven.

Mom mom was the kindest and most generous person i ever knew. I had many great memories with Mom mom, so many, that they would not fit on this page, but some of the best memories happened at the pool. The whole family would have a bunch of fun, especially Mom mom. Even when her back or foot or whatever was bothering her that day, she would always come outside with everybody and find many ways to have a good time. The times that the family went out to dinner with her were also good memories. She would always laugh and joke with everyone, and she would occasionally slip me a twenty from time to time. We would also play games with both Mom mom and Pop, and order dinner from Royal Farms or My Three Sons. These were some of the best of times I had with my grandmother and i appreciated every moment of it.

I have so many fond memories of my mom. Driving to atlantic city talking and listening to music . Staying up all night talking and watching movies. Watching her get on pier rides with joseph when he was a baby. Going to various places to eat. We always had so much fun. I can't imagine how much fun it would've been if we could've actually won some money. Those were such good times. The thing that was so great about our relationship was the fact that we never had to do anything special to have a good time. We could just hang out at the pool or go out to dinner or even just go over for a visit. We always had fun talking and shared a lot of laughs. Even in her final days she was still able to joke and laugh with me and that will always stay with me along with how happy she was to finally get a cough drop. That summed up my mom ! Never asked for much and very easy to please and could find a way to be happy and laugh when most people would be miserable. I'll always remember how much she lit up when she saw or talked about my wife or my son and how she always tried to make me feel special. I loved her so much and will miss her more than I can put into words. She was not only my mother but also my friend my guide the one person I could talk to about anything and everything. I wish I would've been there for her more and had more time to do things but I look forward to the day I will see her again and to spending eternity together.

Pop,
With deepest and heartfelt condolences...
What a blessing to have had her as a mother-in-law. She treated me like a daughter from the moment we met and for that I am eternally grateful. The love, kindness, and thoughtfulness she shared towards me, I will cherish and carry all the days of my life. We had wonderful times together and many, many laughs over the years. I will miss her infectious laugh, sweet smile, poolside talks, Sunday family cookouts, birthday and holiday celebrations , and especially our Chili's margaritas! Joseph loved his Mom-Mom very much. He will miss her terribly and her "delicious kisses". May she rest in peace...
LOVE YOU MOM!
Always,
Gina

Mom, The first time I met you was I was a Junior in High School. It was in November. I can remember how nervous I was to meet you and the family. You opened you arms up to me. We have had so many Awesome times together and as a family like Bowling, Going to Dinner for Everyone’s Birthday, Shopping Trips, Going to the different Casinos, Christmas Eve’s and the list could just go on and on. We have so many Wonderful Memories together and as a family. I was lucky enough for you to refer to me as your daughter and I called you Mom. You are going to missed by many people mom. I love you!

I was completely blessed to have such an amazing mom-mom. She has been incredibly supportive throughout my life. We’ve had great memories together that I’ll never forget and things I will carry to my children one day. She loved her family but most importantly loved God. I love her so much and I can’t wait to see her again one day.
