ADD A MEMORY
Patricia Fabbri Loar

You were the big sister I always wanted. We shared so many days, months, years of our lives together. We were always expecting babies close to the same times. Always comparing notes.
There were times we laughed until we cried and cried until we found it difficult to stop. But we were there for each other. Thru the years only geographics kept us apart .
My brother always laughed when you and I played music with the vacuum sweeper. We were young, crazy and our hearts were filled with love of family.
I will continue to miss those times but I have a heart full of beautiful memories. RIP Goonga.
P.s. bets are on that Banjo Eyes found a slot machine up there....in his kitchen.❤💚❤❤

I will always remember going to Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Aldo’s house as a kid. Such wonderful memories with such beautiful people. I’m sorry she is gone, but I know they are cooking one hell of an Italian feast in heaven. My love to you all during this difficult time.

No matter how long a life is, it doesn't ever seen to be enough time. It's always difficult to say good bye, but I know all the family is welcoming Marilyn home and I'm sure Al was there with arms open first in line of many. I'll always remember Marilyns love of her family and abundance of wisdom and good advice. May all the special memories you each have of your Mother or grandmother, comfort you now and in the coming days.
