Dear Mom,

We had fun. Going to garage sales, walking on the sand on Long Beach, eating lobster and steamers at Lido beach. You gave me a love of reading and learning. You showed me generosity and forgiveness. I will always think: what would Mom do in this situation? I love you. Thank you forever. Your daughter, Laura

Grandma Helen always remembered the important things in her grand childrens' lives. I loved going to the beach and doing puzzles with her during summer vacations. She was so generous to help Carrie and I further our education, and for that we'll always be grateful.

I'll miss Grandma a lot, but I'm sure that she's happy and comfortable where she is now.

Mom, I will miss you very much. I know how much you enjoyed family gatherings with our families including our aunts and uncles. We try still today to keep this going as best we can because you taught me how important it is. I enjoyed going to antique shops with you. I hope that I will have the same relationship with my children and grandchildren as you have had with all of us.

Growing up, I remember getting together with all the family at Grandma's apartment for Christmas. It was always a special time and thats where I found my love of stuffed arichokes. She always spoiled us grandkids with her generous gift giving. I remember all the cactus she had and her love of plants. And I remember all the bangles, rings and necklaces she always wore. She had a love for the beach that I inherited and I'm so thankful we spent every year of my childhood going together. I will miss her!
