Love to all of the Sisinni family. May all of the wonderful memories you have of times shared together bring some comfort during this difficult time. I have such fond memories of growing up next door to the Sisinnis - our Neighbors. Mr. and Mrs. Sisinni we were so kind to us Bradys - especially when Mrs S. would let Regina Sisinni Propes know, who would then call me, that my Dad was on the roof of our house again, 'secured' by a rope tied somewhere and she would be sure to let us know if he ended up dangling off the side of the house during one of these roof visits. It was so great to see them on visits with Regina, always so nice to catch up. Those memories will always have a special place in my heart.

My sweet Grandma, where do I begin?

You were the greatest grandma in the world. Fair, kind, loving, generous. The best teacher, even when it was a tough lesson that needed to be learned.

The love you had for us, your grandchildren, was immeasurable but you showed us every day in many, many ways.

I miss you so much already and wish heaven had a phone so I could hear you say "hey sweetie, what's doin" and just chat for a while.

Knowing you are with my mommy and Grandpa has brought me such comfort that I will hold on to with all my strength, but it will never be okay.

I know I will see you again ❤

"I hope the angels know what they have. I bet it's so nice up in heaven since you arrived."

Until then Grandma... watch over me and visit me in my dreams..

I am so fortunate to have known Regina. I was sort of adopted into the family for holidays and special events. We laughed and had so much fun. Her and my mom have birthdays a day apart so I will always remember her birthday. Rest in peace. You will be missed.

I miss you. I keep reaching for my phone to call you or text you. I listen to your voice mails. I know you’re happy and safe, but I miss you...

Mrs. Sisinni was my 3rd grade teacher (1982-1983) at St. Catharine’s elementary school in Blauvelt NY. She is 1 of the teachers I most remember from my childhood. I vividly remember waiting in line by her desk and when it was my turn I called her “mom” by accident. She had a good laugh over it but even as a young girl I saw a lot of similarities between those 2 strong and kind women who had high expectations. I didn’t know we both ended up in NC (I’m now in Hillsborough). My condolences on your loss. May she Rest In Peace.

I first met Regina at Abbotswood where I was blessed to do a Communion service every 3rd. Tuesday of the month for Regina and other catholic friends . Regina ‘s was the first smiling face I saw as I entered the room which she had already set up for the service. I loved Regina’s humor and her gracious welcoming to me especially when I first started doing the service by myself. It only took a few visits before I felt so comfortable and we were a great team celebrating Christ In the Eucharist. I I will miss Regina and feel blessed to have known her.

Regina was always a mainstay at the parish office as a volunteer receptionist and her prayer shawls comforted many a person. But I really got to know Regina at Abbotswood, where she organized and watched out for the Catholic folks who attended Sunday services. (I know she also watched out for many an Abbotswood resident, no matter their church affiliation.)
She was always wonderful to talk to and love was always at the heart of her.
I will miss her very much.

Mom. I miss you already. You and Dad were both wonderful parents and more importantly, wonderful examples, and I cannot be grateful enough for all you have done for all of us through out our entire lives. From bringing us into this world, to helping us through it. Even at 60 years of age, I still took great comfort in being able to talk to my mother. No more.
I will miss you Mom. We all will miss you. I thank you and hope you are in a better place, with your parents, your sister Lillian, and Aunts Uncles and Friends... Your daughter Laura, and husband Sam. / all your loved ones once again. And maybe some time I will see you again, some day. But in any case, I have you in my heart. Love, Peter
