We will all miss Annamarie very much. She was a caring and generous mother-in-law, an outstanding mother to my wife, loving grandmother to our children and her determination and grit are an inspiration to everyone who knew her.

While my mother truly loved her job, her greatest love was for her family. She treasured her time with her children and grandchildren and was so proud of each of them. Even in her 80's, she made the trip to Virginia to be there when my youngest son, her last grandchild, came into this world. There wasn't a baby my mother couldn't soothe and she had endless patience with newborns - especially my colicky crew! She would stay up all night with each of my newborn sons, insisting that I rest during those first few exhausting weeks of motherhood. I don't know what I would have done without my mother's support and generosity during those times and throughout my life.
As my kids grew older, they always looked forward to Grandma's visits, accompanied by her delicious Italian food and my boys' favorite desserts, but most of all, by her unconditional love. I'm so grateful for the years my children had with their Grandma Annamarie and I know they will cherish the memories of their time with her forever, as will I. We all love you so much and will miss you always, Mom.

Before I left to study abroad in Florence, Italy — a place I chose to go because of my grandmother’s heritage — Annamarie prepared a whole spread of Italian food for my going away party of about 30 people. Everyone there made it clear that it was the best food they’ve ever eaten, which is simply a fact. I’ll miss you forever, grandma.
