Dear Nanna,

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to know you. I will alway cherish the times we spent together, especially the trips we took together to Florida. Seeing the look on your face as we drove through the mountains, and hearing you talk about how beautiful the scenery was, are memories that will warm my heart forever.
I remember how you always greeted us with so much love and excitement every time we'd come to visit.
Nanna you were greatly loved by all of us and will be sorely missed.

May you Rest In Peace.
I love you.
Your grandson, Andrew.

I miss my mother a lot but I am relieved that her soul is now free.
One of my Mom's best attributes that I will always admire is her kindness. Whether it was helping a neighbor write letters to a far away daughter, or pick up an item from the grocery store for another, she was always happy to help.
Mom always encouraged my siblings and I to be the best that we can be; whether it was our education, sport participation, careers, or major life events, she was always there with her support.
One of the most memorable events of both my Mom and Dad, was a Caribbean cruise we had together some years ago. My mother was so awed by the beauty of the islands we visited, the natives' rich history, their traditions, and unique foods. I can still hear the words my Mom uttered so often in our native tongue, "xi gmiel", translated: "how beautiful". I will never forget that event.
I miss my mother a lot, but I know that she is happy where she is at, and that some day we will be together again.

Love you forever,
Pat

My Dear Nanny

I am so glad I came to Canada for a visit on September 11, 2011 with Tara soon to be my wife. I was thrilled and very grateful that I spent time together with you my nanna. I remember my younger years when I use to come to your house you always greeted me with, My Markus Welby, as this was as TV show called Markus Welby M.D.
Nanna, I will always remember your gentle ways, your beautiful smile, your love and your kind warm heart. Nanna, I always hoped to come to Canada so I can see you once again, but time did not permit.
Nanna, you will always be in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

Nanna, I Love You
Mark, your Grandson

Wow what a journey Mom! We come into this life, into this wild journey with, as Gord Downie so eloquently put it ‘no dress rehearsal, this is our life” It’s very clear how many lives Mom touched while here and i can tell you that bias was not a word that Mom knew well. Somehow she had an inmate knowing that everyone is special! How does someone live all those years and not judge anyone in an adverse way? My heart soars with love when i think about how precious that is! Well mom it took some time but I have come to learn this profound truth myself.Everyone is special. So easy to criticize that statement, but walk in someone’s shoes who you hastily think may not be special, especially to the age of about 7 and only then you will know how precise that rearing is. Its a critical part of life. Mom reared 10 of us, and all of us had the great fortune to be raised with Love at the helm, and she still had lots in the tank for anyone and everyone who had crossed her journeys path! Her Love lives on. I feel it everywhere. Which is why i feel such great peace! I even feel it through Nicholas. (Her Cat at one time) Partially because he’s a joy bringing son of a gun! Having that joy,energy,frequency vibration any time while you are here in this lifetime, in this eternal now is a beautiful thing! That’s a good way to feel Mom, knowing that she too is in this eternal now.Mom would want us to see the beautie in things, love each other, love life, and likely most important, Love who you are! Reflect for a minute on your own journey, every person reading this has been through incredible things! So Love that about you! Love knowing that you, an innocent child came into this world and look what you have endured, emotions of love pain compassion confusion heart ache joy fear.. Love who you are and see your light shine brighter than ever!Lets not let Mom journey be in vane. Instead lets take a page out of her book and be the love that makes this world Magical!

Nanny,
You were the most beautiful soul to walk this earth. From bearing 10 children, moving them to another country around the world, maintaining your faith. and bringing your children up with the upmost respect for you, grandpa, each other and everyone around them. Those same values you instilled in your own children were then taught to all of your grandchildren and then great-grandchildren making your earthly legacy an amazing one. I'm sure that cycle will continue on and on. I was privileged to call you “Nanny” for the first 52 years of my life and you will forever be in my heart and my memories. Love you so much.
Your first grandson, Tony
xoxo

I’ll start with one of my fondest memories of Nina. We had most of the Zammit family over for Thanksgiving dinner one year early in our marriage. After dinner we were all sitting in the living room with our backs to the dining room table. Suddenly Nina is laughing so hard she can’t speak and is just pointing at the dining room table.

Our dog Bailey had jumped up on a chair and then on the table. He was devouring the pumpkin pie that had been placed there for dessert. We couldn’t get him to part with the pie until he had licked every last drop. Nina thought it was the funniest thing ever and to see her so full of joy made my Thanksgiving. It still makes me laugh today!

Nina, thank you for being a supportive and loving mother-in-law to me for 22 years. And thank you for raising one of the most important people in my life. I feel so blessed to be a part of the wonderful family you built.

We will all miss you Nina, but we take great comfort in knowing that you are now reunited with Stephen.

Love always, Kira

My Beautiful Mom.
Mom, I am so grateful that I was able to hold your hand as you passed on to the other side. I’m sure a lot of departed family members where there to welcome you. I will for sure miss seeing you. What I know for sure is that you will be watching over us from above. That is what you do. That is what you always do. I love you so much. I appreciate all the sacrifices you made for us to ensure our happiness is in no way compromized. You are a super mom. We are all so lucky to have had you as our mom. Thank you for all that you instilled in us. We are what we are because of you. Ten awesome kids still congregating at every appotunity. You will be missed but always remembered in our hearths. Until we meet again. Rest in peace Mom.
I love you Mom.

I have many Memories With my Nanny which I will Cherish for the rest of my life . A genuine soul, selfless woman, Her faith guided her life, I remember her giving me a rosary and teaching me to pray it. She saw the beauty in everything, when I close my eyes I can hear her saying “that’s beautiful” or “that’s great”. She was one of the best cooks I know, even the simplest dish was something to brag about. I’m thankful to have had her as a Nanny for so many years, I’m sad to see her go, but there’s isn’t a stitch of doubt in my mind where she is now.

I love you Nanny.

Dear Nanny,
Ever since I was a child you have always been a source of stability and peace. You are the most sweet, kind, noble, and heartwarming person I have met in my life.
I have many fond memories with you like walking around your place wearing my dinosaur pajamas as a kid, having Pastizzi's in your backyard, your amazing pantry with the best snacks, going to church, your amazingly charming laughter, and all the family events together. I feel so grateful and lucky that you are my grandma. You are inspirational and strong, and I am so thankful for the legacy of our family you left behind. We will cherish your memory and teach our children your values, and your story. You will be in our hearts and minds until we meet again in the next life.
I love you with all my heart, and wish you peace and happiness.

Love your grandson,
Alexander
