I've been trying to find the right words to summarize how grateful I am for all of the love and memories you have given me and how thankful I am for you, but the truth is that no words could fullly encapsulate the amount of gratitude I have. You will forever be a part of who I am. So, thank you for making me breakfast everyday before school, thank you for doing all my "crazy hair day" styles, thank you for watching Mary Poppins and High School Musical over and over again with me, thank you for hand painting all the chocolates with me for my 16th birthday, thank you for all the laughs and thank you for the countless other things you have done for me. I will always be your baby girl. I love you now and forever.

Dear Julie, Jayson, Jerry and Families,
Sending you our deepest sympathy over the passing of your beloved mom. I remember the many days that she spent helping out at Marieville School when you were young. She was always so kind and pleasant to us all. Growing up in Marieville, I remember her and your dad, as well as her sister Diane, from our days in the town. It seems like only yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Jean was my classmate at North Providence High School. She was a great friend and a great classmate. After high school, we lost touch . In later years, we reconnected. Her son Jerry married my best friends daughter Melissa. The day we met, She immediately recognized each other. We once again became friends. Jean and her husband Jerry were a perfect couple only to be tarnished by Jerry's early death ..... Melissa and Jerry are like family to me . They invite me to every celebration and Jean was at all of them. We laughed, we danced, we had so much fun together. Always a perfect smile on he face for all to see and enjoy. Yes Jean ... I will miss you very much. May your next life be full of joy and happiness with your dear husband Jerry......

So happy cousin Jean could visit us in New Orleans just a few months ago. It was a great memory eating dinner together on the bayou with our Rhode Island family. Such a sweetheart!
May all loved ones have peace and comfort during this time.
