I loved visiting my Nonna, she would see our car and be waving at the door when we arrived. Her laundry room by the back door always smelled clean like Snuggle laundry detergent, Nonna would then drive us to Sam’s to do her shopping. While there we had to have a fresh, soft pretzel covered in the largest salt crystals I had ever seen! Another favorite memory I have is when I would get to stay the night. Nonna would fix up this old exercise mat as a pallet for us and we’d get to pick out a movie from the door in her overly packed craft room.

My mom told me when I was a baby and had colic once that she was exhausted holding me, walking me and jiggling me all day. Aunt Jewel came over and took me in her arms, giving my mom a rest and was able to calm me down. She was always willing to help others. I remember the times when I was over at her house that she had a quiet voice and how talented she was in sewing and crochet. She always delighted and surprised me with funny quips and her stories of growing up. I am very glad I got to spend time with Aunt Jewel and my cousins going to Disney World some 12 years ago. She was a funny, sweet and kind lady whom I will miss.

So many memories, nonna having Hersey kisses in the refrigerator is one I'll always remember. Also, I would eat a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios everytime I went over there. Now everytime I eat a bowl I think of nonna. We would also play card games, one of our favorites was Go Make Groceries. Which I've found those in a store, but it wasn't the same as original. Looking through a end table that belonged to nonna, found the original Go Make Groceries game. :) Another one is when nonna came to watch Josh and I when my dad was in hospital, and the cows got out the fence. She was out there trying to "shoo shoo" them lol. She will never be forgotten and always loved. Say hi to Josh and Pappy for me. :) Tell them miss and love them very much.

Of course, for any kid, at Christmas time was always great. Those memories will always be special to me. But what was even better than that was the times I would get to sleep over at my grandparents house. I loved it, and the mornings were the best. I remember us sitting at the table as I would eat my breakfast and they would drink their coffee. I thought it was cool they had bird feeders on the back patio. We would just hangout at the table, and as we talked I would gaze at the birds and squirrels out the window. Those were the best moments, no work or school to rush off to, just family time in the calm and quiet of an early morning.
Her memory will never be forgotten, I will always cherish those moments.

I had the honor of meeting Mrs. Jewel (Nonna) two years ago. Her smile always lit up the room! I sat with her on various occasions and always enjoyed being in her company. She will forever be on my heart!

Blessings to All,

Mom you will be missed by us all. You were our glue that held us all together. You were an important part of the lives of your children, grandchildren and even your great-grandchildren. Many of your nieces and nephews have very fond memories of you too. There is a hole in our lives now that you are gone. Rest in peace knowing how much you were loved by all. Say Hi to Josh for me. Love you always, Joni

Aunt Jewel was silly and fun to visit with over coffee. She and mom used to laugh and cut up the whole time they were together. She wasn't afraid of a lot of kids in the house! And you can see all her cute behaviors in James and the girls. ❤️

So many memories being at Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Jewels. Aunt Jewel and Aunt Blanche were like second mothers. I will miss Aunt Jewel very much.
