My Dear Mom,
It's already been 2 years, I can't believe it! I am still grieving for you every single
day of my life. I miss you so so much, I cannot even explain or put it in words.
You, were my mom, best friend and my running partner after dad's passing and
my divorce. I miss all of our shopping trips, going out to dinner or lunch, you spending the night with me all the time. I loved having you and Sammy spend the night with me Truffles and Sugar. We were so happy just sitting here together with our precious babies. Sammy still lays in your spot! I love you mom so much...
I wish you could come back, I know you put up a hell of a fight to survive as long as you did. I will hold you close in my heart forever.....I didn't mind taken care of you at all, you were no problem. Forever mom, until we meet again. Your daughter Pam

My heartfelt condolences to the entire family and may you all be comforted in knowing she is still with you in your hearts.

As Margaret Ventimiglia's oldest grandchild, my grandma until her passing spoke fondly of Delores and treasured their phone conversations- she kept me updated on our California relatives all these years. My prayers are with you.
