I am so very sorry that I am so late with wishing you both a Happy Anniversary (12/8), Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Mom I also wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday (12/12)in heaven.
Just wanted to let you both know how very much you are both missed especially around this time of the year. It still hurts and things just aren't the same but we have to move on and live our lives the best we can.
Spent Christmas with Megan, Jeremy & Brayden. Brayden is getting so big and he is still sweet, kind and loving. They also have a new puppy, Zeke. He is such a good boy too. Getting along with their other fur baby Nola. We also video chatted with both Sue and Aunt Connie.
Spent New Years back home with Eddie. We are waiting on a new arrival in February. His daughter Valerie is having a little boy! So sorry I didn't do this before today. Love you both and miss you so very much.

Happy Birthday Dad! Another year and another birthday. 10 years have gone by and so much has changed..... Sue just had her 54th Birthday and Brayden had his 10th. We all made a trip up to RI in June and we got to see everyone. It was a really good family trip and we had a wonderful time with everyone. Love you and miss you everyday.

Happy belated Mother's Day. I got back from DC. Was up there on Dad's anniversary. Glad I was able to keep busy on that day but I came back and got sick. Didn't feel like celebrating Mother's Day. You aren't here and I didn't get to be with Megan & Brayden...they will be coming down next weekend and then we will all be going to RI in June! I have spoken to everyone. We are all looking forward to this visit.
Looking through pictures and found this one from a Mother's Day about 18 years ago...we all look so young!! So much has changed.
Love you and miss you both so much.

Still so hard to believe you have been gone 5 years now. Just came back from a weekend in Georgia visiting Megan and Brayden. She and Jeremy went up to Atlanta for work so that left me and Ed with Brayden and Nola (she's the cutest little doggie!)You and Dad would get a kick out of her.
Been busy with work and just won re-election to my position for the 5th time so I'm set for another 3 years! Getting me closer and closer to retirement. Our trip to R.I. is set and we will hopefully get to see everyone. Megan, Jeremy and Brayden are flying in on June 14. We will be coming in that day also. Sue, Clete and Jason are driving in from N. Y.
We can't wait to see everyone! Not sure if we will be doing a mass for you and Dad...I just want to make sure that we spend time with both sides of the family since this will be the first time that most of them meet Brayden ...and this may very well be the last time that we see some of them...we are all getting old.
Got some really bad news about an old friend of mine today...so young only 62 and she passed away today. We are not guaranteed tomorrow.
Miss you both so very much!

It is so nice to reflect on our past. I love you all, and hope you enjoy being together for the holidays. I just looked at the photos, boy there is a good one of Mom. It brings her back to mind so vividly. Be sure to find me in June.

Happy Birthday Mom. Can't believe another year and another birthday without you. We are all doing well. The holidays and your birthdays are still so hard without you and Dad. Megan will be hosting her first Christmas at her house this year. Brenda and Meme will be there as well and of course you and Dad will be in our hearts.Brayden is so excited his little family will be all together. Spoke to all of the family Thanksgiving weekend. Sue and I will be going to RI in June. We need to see everyone. Time I'd going by so quickly and everyone is getting older. Megan is going to try to go up also. I will write again during Christmas. Love you and miss you both so very much.

Joyce, It is really nice that you write to Mom & Dad. I think it is so precious.
I also miss them. We talk about Dad a lot when I am on funerals. Boy time flies. Thinking of you too.

It is still so very hard to believe that you are gone and that four years have gone by already. So much has happened since I last wrote to you last year.
The house was sold and I have driven by it a couple of times since I sold it. I also sold my house a bought a new one in Orlando. There was no reason to keep me in that area any more. Ed and I moved in October. The ride to work is only a few miles and I can still hear the worry in your voice as to when you would watch the news and see all of the tail lights on I-4.Well you don't have to worry anymore.
This was Easter weekend and I went to visit Aunt Connie while she was still in Florida. Also saw Linda a few days ago while she was on vacation at Disney. Sue is good. She has fixed up her house the way she always wanted. She just had surgery on her sinuses. She is recovering and the boys are good. Megan is doing well in her new house and job in GA. Brayden is getting so big and he's so smart. Meme gave Brenda a real scare this past December with a blood clot in the brain. She had surgery and is doing really well. She's not ready to join you up in heaven yet.
We all miss you so very much. I'm sorry I didn't write on your bday or at XMAS. You are in my thoughts every day. You are missed by all of us. We do have our little stories of our little Maria.
I miss your voice and your laugh. I put up the picture I took of us at Easter in 2011 with my new tablet...you were amazed at how we were able to take a selfie!
Give Dad our love...I guess I will be writing to you both on his anniversary and on Mother's Day.
I miss you so much. Love you both.

Mom we miss you so very much. Today is always such a difficult day. Hard to believe that 3 years have passed. So much has happened. Sue is doing well...as a matter of fact we got together with everyone back in RI at the end of last year. Jason is such a great boy. Megan, Jeremy and Brayden are doing well also. He is growing up so fast...he's going to be 8 this year. There is never a day that goes by that I don't think of you and Dad. I miss you both so very much. Hope you are smiling as you look down on us from up above. Brayden says you are our angels. We are about to close on your little house. It sold in the first 4 days it was on the market. I say that it has good vibes from a life well lived. I know how much you and Dad loved that little house and I hope the next owner loves it too. Although our hearts are broken and heavy especially today we take comfort in knowing the two of you are together and you are no longer in pain. We miss you so very much. I love you Mom.

Happy Birthday Mom! I miss you so very much. Megan was home for Thanksgiving with Brayden. He's gotten so big and he says that he misses Vavo and Pappa even though he can't remember much about Pappa. Unfortunately our lives have to continue but I am so glad that you two are together and looking down from heaven on your family. Thanks for being our angels.

Happy Mother's Day Mom. Miss you so much. This day just isn't the same without you. Love you.

Hey Mom. It's hard to believe that it has been a year since you left us. So much has happened. Megan is such a beautiful young woman and I am so proud of the woman and mother she has become. The little guy is so big and so smart. She definitely has her hands full with him. Just saw Suzy and Jason a couple of weeks ago. They are doing well. We all miss you so very much and we take comfort in knowing that are in a better place and that you are not sufferring. I think about you everyday and I miss you so very much. Love you Mom. Joyce

Happy Birthday Mom...still can"t believe you are gone. I miss you so very much. You would have gotten a kick out of this birhtday 12-12-12. Turning 79 would have been a big deal. Had a good weekend with the kids...Brayden is getting so big. They will be here for XMAS and I'm sure we will share lots of stories about you. Love you Mom and Happy Birhtday...you are truly missed by all of us.

Hey Mom...just got back from the service that was held for my girlfriend Sharon. It was beautiful. You both were so truly loved by so many. Sharon struggled for a little bit...she just wasn't ready to let go. Heaven truly has two more beautiful souls to look over us and be out angels. I miss you both so very much.

My dear friends, I still can't believe Manny is gone, I still have his obit under my desk pad where I can see him all the time. I'm sure God will take good care of your Mom also. I will never forget her perpetual smile, her hospitality and her endless love for you all.
April 13, 2012
Mom, still having a hard time believing that you are gone. I miss you so much. I brought you home today. Your urn is beautiful and I hope you'll be happy here with me. Funeral Director fixed your entry on the website so people can leave messages for you now. There have been a couple of masses in your honor already. I know there will be a few more. The pictures from Megan's wedding are out. She was so beautiful that day and we all missed you. Looking forward to sharing the pictures with you. Brayden says Vavo is his angel up in heaven. You are truly our angel now. I love Mom. Joyce
