As we grieve the loss of our dear sweet Aunt Bea we can’t help but reflect with love and gratitude the positive impact she had on so many. So much wisdom and love that you and Uncle Joey brought into Nick’s (Nicky, Jr ) life growing up—will be your legacy for us. I’m partially fond of the story my husband tells with a smile on his face (for the thousandth time) of his move to FL and his hilarious yet life lessons ride to FL in the car as he rode from NJ to FL with Aunt Bea joining to help in his family’s move. Shortly after that I met Nick and he told me on date #4 “I always wanted to marry a girl like my Aunt Bea,” so knowing how much he respected and loved her I was quite honored as he told me of how much love and energy she put into her family. I hope I came close to this wonderful legacy and thankful for times we’ve all shared. May the mention of your name Aunt Bea bring loving joyful memories to all who loved you. Rest In Peace with your beloved husband and son until we meet again... love always,
Christine, Nick & FrankSal
