We met on our first trip to Italy with Fr. Wantland. Pat, Carol, Lydia and I had the best time together. We also visited Greece. Happy memories of friendship and laughter.
Oh, how she loved her Dina and Rocco.
Lydia was one of the best C.C.W. Presidents at St. Andrew.
It was a shock to hear of her passing.
Saw her last December on a bus trip to see the Ditchfield Family Singers in Sarasota.
May she rest in the arms of Our Savior and Blessed Mother.

Your mom is still your mom. Now she’s with you 24/7. She wishes for you to live with lots of love, happiness, joy and lots of laughter. In time we all will be going home and ‘seeing’ each other again. Much love
