I cant believe your gone grandma. Im glad I got to talk with you on the phone a couple weeks before you passed and go out to eat with you uncle mike and mom and dad. I will always remember your kind words and how you always managed to make everyone in our LARGE family feel special. You were an amazing grandmother and an amazing mother to my mom. I'll always remember my sleepovers when I was little, and playing hookie from school just so I could spend the day with you. I miss you so much already, but I know well see eachother again. Love you grandma.

Mary, thank you for remaining part of our lives after all the years - for your kindness, friendship, love that went out to not only myself - but to my parents - and to being a wonderful grandmother to Brian. I will always treasure the times we had getting together to "catch up" on our lives and your happiness for me. You will be deeply missed - we love you!!

I miss you so much already, Mom, I don't know how I'll go on. I will be forever grateful that you were my mother, Mom. Thanks for your unconditional love and encouragement. Thanks for being the wonderful inspiration you always were. You were a giver - asking nothing in return. If there was some way you could help someone, you did it. You made the world a better place to be in for all who knew you. You will live on in the hearts of all of the people whose lives you touched. Our family will continue to love one another and will get together to share in each others lives as you've always encouraged us to do. I'm relying on many of your own words as I try to move forward with my life.

Kiss Dad, Margie, Richie and Renee for me. They know how much we all miss them.

Until we meet again, Mom.

Mom, I will remain forever grateful to have had you for my mom. Thanks for your unconditional love and understanding, guidance and for being the inpirational person you've always been to me. You were always a giver - asking for nothing in return. If you could help someone, you did. You made the world a better place, Mom, and you will be sorely missed. Your owns words will be my guiding light as I try to move on without you here. We will continue loving each other and getting together as you've always encouraged us to do. You will live on in each of us as well as in the many other people whose lives you touched.

Until we meet again....
