Dear Aunt Jan:

You always impressed me as a lady of grace and elegance! I unfortunately didn't get to know you or your family very well, as I always lived in the south, and visited infrequently. But I know this for sure . . . you lit up my Uncle Johnny's life! Uncle John didn't start his life until he married you! He truly never knew happiness until he shared his life with you. What a wonderful thing to complete someone as you did.

I know you're both resting with a life full of wonderful memories.

My blessings and condolences to all of your family.

Sincerely,

Nephew David Bozzi

Dear Jeannette's Family,
My mother, Elaine, and Jeannette shared a room at the Abbott House for a few years and comforted each other. They became friends and kept each other company; eating meals, playing Bingo, various activities and saying Rosary every Friday morning with Amy. I spent a lot of time at Abbott House and remember seeing Jeannette's children, granddaughters and great-grandchildren visit which always brought a smile to Jeannette.
I am very sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
Sincerely,
Linda (Perlino) Cunningham xo

Jeannette Prezioso was an incredibly special person. There will never be another like her. She was the strongest person I knew never taking " bologna" from anyone - yet she was also the kindest. Her generosity and selflessness is what I will remember most about her. Her heart was as big as the moon. She cared about people in a way that most don't. She loved her friends, she loved God, and above all else she loved her family. Even in her darkest days she found humor in everything. She loved to laugh and she loved to joke. She truly knew what was important in life and never let what wasn't get in her way. She was the matriarch of our family and while our loss is tremendous we will celebrate her and the time we had because that is exactly what she would have wanted us to do.

Nana, it breaks my heart that you aren’t here but I know you are in peace with Meme, Pepe, and John. ❤️
