Mom,I was privileged to call you that for the last thirty plus years.. You taught me that woman can be strong and sassy at the same time.. You were caring, loving and a amazing woman.. I have so many memories but my favorite is when my family visited you and Dad last year and you drop the fbomb because of the squirrels.. We still laugh about it. I'm grateful I was able to see you in your final days and know your final words to me were to drive home carefully and that I love you.. Please know Dad will be taken care of.. With all my heart I LOVE YOU and you will forever be missed!! Love Your adopted daughter Francine AKA Franny Baby..

I miss you when the sun comes up and when the sun goes down and all the hours inbetween! I have so many great memories of all our time together especially the last few years! You were my mom and also my friend and we could talk and laugh for hours! You were a amazing mother so full of grace and you were so beautiful and caring and unselfish! I know why my dad fell in love with you and we needed you in our lives! My dad and all of us respected and loved you more than you will ever know! Can't remember the last time you said my name, you always called me your "Baby child" I can still hear you say it so clearly and see all your face expressions! My life will never be the same without you, but how fortunate i was to call you mother i will always count my blessings for you! Thank you for being the most wonderful you.......i miss you, and i saw the baby bunny on your back patio the day after you passed......thank you for that! I love you!

Dear Barb – You have been a wonderful mother- in- law and friend and a grandma to my kids. You made us feel like part of the family and for 12 years I have enjoyed talking to you, confiding in you and sharing every moment with you about our lives, weather it was happy or sad or a big occasion, I always had to let you know! Your great sense of humor, your feisty and fun personality, your gentle soul, your generosity and unconditional love will be greatly missed. We love you and we will never forget you.
Carmela, Gio and Gabby
