So many wonderful memories of my youth are from times spent with my Aunt Gloria , Uncle Marco and my cousin’s Grace , Geri, James and Mark. How I looked forward to going to their home. It was such a happy place for me. I cherish those memories. God bless Aunt Gloria and family and thank you.

This week my mom passed away and so did a piece of my heart.
My mom loved her family more than anything. At times she would go without so we wouldn’t.
For me, I will always remember being a little boy coming home from school and her being there to greet me with a big smile, hug and a kiss. She would always have a hot chocolate or a vanilla malted waiting for me.
Today heaven has a new angel watching over me who will live in my heart forever.
I love you mom and miss you already

My beloved mother, Gloria Vale, passed away quickly last Wednesday. I sat beside her holding her hand, praying the Rosary while reflecting on our relationship as mother and daughter.
My mom influenced me to deepen my love for my religion and she was my role model as a devoted wife, loving mother, and aunt. She lived a very simple life yet taught me a very important lesson. You do not need to pursue a great calling or career beyond loving the people around you to make a lasting impact. I hope to carry on my mother’s legacy.
Mama, may the angels welcome you to heaven as you are warmed again by Dad’s sweet embrace.

She was the best mother a son could have. My mother was loving and caring and you could always depend on her to help you overcome any problem that needed to be resolved. Also she was the best cook especially her chicken cutlets that both myself and son Chris would rave over. She was not much of an eater but loved her All American Knishes . Pastrami Kings. sandwich's and lobster. If there was an express line into heaven then she would be at the top of St Peter list . I will miss her deeply but I know my dad is yelling Gloria what is there to eat!
