GG what can I say? What can anyone say? As the years passed, we knew that one day you would be gone, no one lives forever. It doesn’t make the pain any less

Growing up living just a few doors away from you is something I’ll always cherish. Running down to your house to wake you up—- The homemade pasta hanging up waiting to be pulling in front of our house beeping the horn and loudly calling Kathleen!!! Spending time in PA with you and aunt fee. The looonnngggg road trip to the bluegrass state and you being prepared with spanish rice and chicken. Our trip to Italy and you didn’t care that I would only eat pasta with eggplant until we got to Sicily. The Vatican door being open and the sign that said no pictures. Yep there’s a picture of me going through that door!!Me being in the hospital and your use of the long wait to have your foot checked out. The countless visits to you and you always having what my kids needed. A stroller, toys their favorite foods. And of course bread and pretzels for them to feed the ducks. The family cruise! Visits to the casino. Cici’s!!The memories are endless... my children are fortunate to have their memories as well. You will always be a big part of our lives.

You endured the untimely passing of papa when you were on vacation and at that time one of your daughters was expecting a child. You watched another daughter grieve the loss of her spouse. You lived in the same building as another daughter and was able to watch her daughter grow up. 3 generations just a stair case away from each other! You buried your youngest daughter. You comforted us and showered us with love when life threw you curve balls. You never ever had the woes me...

You were a go to and a pick me up when i needed it. You always knew what to say.

You made everything better for all.

I will be forever grateful to have had you for as long as we did. Now you will live forever in our hearts. Keep sending the signs!!😘
