I never thought I could find another mother. I am so blessed to have had her in my life for the last 12 years. Her beauty was outside as well as inside. She could light up a room when she walked in. Her smile was infectious. I will miss her deeply.
Love you mom

I met this wonderful lady many years ago and loved her like she was my own Aunt. Not only was she beautiful she had a heart of Gold.

I’m so saddened to hear of “Mom’s” passing. I was really looking forward to seeing her at our Lamphere High class of 69 50th reunion. She was such a beautiful person inside and out.
RIP Mrs Cassise

Aunt Vera was the best. She was so kind and loving. She would make any room light up. Even these last couple years dealing with Cookies passing and cancer, she was alway happy and never ever complained. I was so happy I had the chance to spend some one on one time with her at our family reunion in August. We had some wine and many many laughs. Aunt Vera will be truly missed by anyone who had the pleasure of ever knowing her. She was a real LADY. An example to all. I will love and miss her always. May God give her family the strength to handle this terrible loss. Love You Aunt Vera - Christine Cassisi
