I wish I could be there with you today to celebrate your mom/ grandma/great grandma. Mrs. Olivieri was always so kind to me and I know how much she loved her family. My thoughts are with you all today. (She made the BEST meatballs and spaghetti sauce and loved to cook for her family!) She will be missed.
With love,
