Uncle Kenny and all,
I am so sorry for the loss of Aunt Vi. I remember the times we spent together when we were kids. The adults played penny rummy and we all played outside . Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I have so many wonderful memories of Grandma! Growing up she brought joy and kindness throughout my life as she helped to shape me into the man I am today. She always had a quick wit and could always make me laugh. I remember her great food (her homemade Rhode Island Clam Chowder being my favorite;), her welcoming arms, and I always loved watching "The Benny Hill Show" at her house before we went upstairs to bed. She was an integral part of my childhood and I am forever grateful for the close relationship that I have had with her. Over the last few years, as our family has been away, I always loved to hear her voice when I would call to check in or on special days like her birthday. Much like our Savior, she loved the little children so very much and they loved her too. The last few summers we would come home to visit and Grandma and Grandpa's house was always a priority. Last summer we brought them both hot fudge sundaes and we laughed together while Grandma hugged and held the kids. She loved them and they felt her great love for them. I was fortunate to have a work trip out east in February and I was blessed to spend some time with Grandma. We shared some chocolate and laughed at her witty comments as I sat next to her and rubbed her back. She remembered me and I could feel her love for me as we visited. Grandma, you are my favorite Grandma ever and the best that a grandson could have had. I will miss seeing you this summer when we visit and I will miss watching you love on my children. I know that they will miss that too. I am so grateful for all of the memories and wonderful times with you. I am also so grateful that families are forever and that I will get to put my arms around you again, tell you that I love you, and hear you say back to me "I love you bunches."

I'm going to miss you Grandma. You were there for a huge part of my life, whether it was my birthday, holidays, watching me get on and off the bus, talking to me through tough times, letting me borrow your car for my driving test and even being there to watch me graduate you were always there for me. I'm going to miss you a lot and I love you Grandma.

Dear Uncle Ken and family,

I would like express my deepest sympathies at the loss of Aunt Vi. She was like my mom in so many ways...kind, loving, always smiling, a gentle spirit who was totally devoted to her family. I remember the old days with huge family picnics at 52 Whittle street and growing up with my cousins. May you take comfort in all those precious and beautiful memories. May God Bless all of you.

It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
For part of me went with you, the day God took you home.
Always loved and never forgotten.

Mom I have so many good memories of the times I spent with you too many to count. We were always together. I would always say to you , you are my bestfriend in the whole world and then you would say it back. You were there for so many important times in my life. I remember when I was sitting by your bedside at yale and you pulled back the covers and said lay with me so we can be close. I remember laying next to you and you holding me I will never forget the feeling of comfort I had being close to you. I remember seeing you there another time and crying and you pulling me close and saying honey don't cry everything's going to be ok . The reason I bring up these is because you were the one that was so sick but you still wanted to comfort me. That's why you were such an amazing mom you were always there to comfort me even in the times when you were the one who needed the comfort. I love you so much my heart is broken. I do have comfort knowing I will be with you again.

I have so many sweet memories of my grandmother. We were fortunate to live upstairs from her and Grandpa as children. She had always looked out for us and was giving and kind. As the years passed she enjoyed being around her great grand children as well. I am so grateful that when I saw her last she knew who I was and told me she loved me with all her heart. I will forever be thankful for her tender heart.
