Oh gramma I miss you so much. My favorite memory of you was when mommy would go on a cruise and you would stay with Miguel and I for a week and we had homemade food cooked everyday for us. You always kept your house clean and always cleaned mommy house for her while she was gone. We both know it needed it. I wouldn’t be such a big fan of law&order SVU if it wasn’t for you gramma. I’m pretty sure you didn’t realize it, but you taught me so much about life. Thank you gramma for being so good to me I love you, and I will miss you for a lifetime.

In my thoughts, heart, and prayers always.... I Love you all.... xoxoxoxox

Loved visiting mom. Eating fried clams. Loved watching you scratch your lottery tickets. All though the ride to the Cape was long it was so well worth it. Rest In Peace Mom. You will be missed. I love you

May you Rest In Peace. You were like my second mom growing up, your house was my second home. If I wasn’t at your house Debbie was at my house. I remember you I used to always give my sister jessica sweets and telling her dont tell your mom lol. The days of going to seagull beach when your sister would come down. May your family get comfort in knowing your no longer suffering. You will definitely be missed by many
