i would like to send my condolences to Noemi, Mariann, Rita ,Elaine and Claire. I always enjoyed spending time with your mother, listening to her tell stories in pretty much any language and watching her eat an entire tray of Brie Cheese. She loved her family and her family loved her. I always liked how she would always say "my" in-front of her family members names, it was sweet. Again, i am sorry for your loss. Your memories of her will last. As will mine.
