Our dear cousin Rosie always sharing and connecting all the cousins with the latest and sharing her childhood memories you could count on her contagious laugh that warmed our hearts. She always projected love with her visits and phone calls. My all time favorite memory will be her singing to the lord as we all gathered to say goodbye to my mom. We will miss her but we have peace knowing Rosie and David are now in paradise with the Lord who created the heavens and earth. We love you. Peace be with the family.

You were our Rock… I know to some that may not think that this is not the sweetest and most enduring way to describe someone that meant so much to us in so many different ways. My Nina had the best intentions always; I believe that down to my soul. Its literal meaning is that you’re what they cling to to avoid getting drug out to sea She may have been stern when delivering advice but I cannot tell you how many times I need the kick in the butt that I knew only she could deliver. She wasn’t someone that would tell you “don’t worry somehow it will all work out” but she was the lady that would tell you “ Only you can make these changes, get up wipe yourself off and get it done” I loved her very much for that ! She pulled me out of a dark despair after my Mother passed and reminded me that she would never want for me to give up and that life must continue with happy memories that were yet to come; she had to do the same after Dad passed and after miscarriages and so many other things that would bring me to my knees. She allowed Nino to be everyone’s Pal while she kept the ship a steer. Thank you for always being so warm and welcoming to my husband Jean and son Jack. Thank you for the advice you gave me on my wedding day, I will keep our special words and private moment near and dear. Thank you for the wonderful Christmas Eve memories, I love you! Say hi to all for us and let them know that we Got This!!! You guys raised us to be a family and we will keep the traditions and love for one another going…
People think of rocks as strong, solid, and unchanging. To call a person a rock means the same thing. That person is someone you can always rely on to help and support you. This was my Nina..
