We will always remember Pena’s constant smile. She played ferocious Rumikube if she was not the champion of the night at least she had a few games under her belt. We were blessed to have met her. We will miss her terribly.

Dear Liz,
Charlie and I are thinking about you all today. We hope that you find comfort of having such a wonderful and loving mom and all the cherished memories that go with it. Even though we didn’t see Mrs Totino very often it was so wonderful to be able to spend some time with her on our visits. Heaven has welcomed one great cook! I’m sure Rick has greeted her with open arms. We love you and are you are all in our prayers today.

Dear Liz and Christina,
My family and I will forever cherish the holidays and special moments we spent together with Pina and family. We enjoyed the cooking and savoring of Pina's special dishes, and of course the chitchatting and the sound of her beautiful voice. Thank you for sharing sweet Pina with the Aplin family.

Maria was always a loving caring and beautiful person. My fondest memories was how she so enjoyed feeding you her wonderful food. My favorite was her pizza. I so enjoyed listening to her stories of life in Italy and how she loved her husband and children. She was over the moon with her great grandson Cameron. I will miss you so and you will be reunited with your dear husband.
