Dear Teechie,
I will so miss you my sweet, funny and loving cousin who had such a positive attitude filled with your special laughter, even on bad days. You exemplified being a strong woman through your life and through your challenges.
We shared so much..our childhood at Grandma’s and many visits to Astoria..vacations in Bluestone at the cabins, raising our kids through phone support, you making me get my microwave Mother’s Day present(which I rejected) out of my car trunk to microwave Natalie’s bottle, playing Words with Friends, sailing with Aunt Mary..and laughing for years about that trip!, and so much more.
You were the bestest mommy, grandma and above all a loving wife to your special guy, Gene...it was a joy to see the love you two shared...
Watch out for all of us from your new heavenly home..
Love you always and forever, cousin Natalie xo
