I probably never told you often enough, but I know any success I've had in life was due to you and dad's kind, compassionate, and thoughtful parenting and guidance. Thank you for always being there for us. I think of you everyday and know you are here with us, still helping to guide. Love your son always, Joe.

I know that Mom always felt that she didn't want to add to your list of things to do because you cared for her so well and with little complaint. You even made her laugh when you helped her by charging her $1.00. We know that you are the best example of compassion and caring that we can ever see in another person. Thank you and I love you.

Dear Mom:
I will always remember you and think about you. You taught me to laugh at myself at an early age and that it was important to express your opinions as long as you respected others. I hated that you suffered because the more you suffered the harder it was going to be for you to fight. I am convinced that your spirit is alive and watching over the people you felt connected to all over the world. I love you. Gina

I am convinced that your spirit will be alive and watching over the world. That is something people may not know about you. You prayed for the problems of people all over the world. I love you. Gina

Dear Aunt Esther,
I will never forget all the times we spent together when I lived in Ft. Collins-we ate ALOT and laughed even more! We were either down there, or you and Lou at our apartment. You loved riding in that '72 bucket seat' Chevy Super Sport. Your laughter was the most contagious and comforting thing anyone would want to hear. Your sweet personality, big heart and generous ways will be dearly missed. You are in a far better place as God is now your eyesight. Love, Anna Marie

Dear Aunt Esther
Who will I ask what happened on our shows now that you are in a better place! Your laugh on the other end of the phone made my day.

Love you always,

Uncle Lou,
You are the best caregiver in the WORLD. Your kind words and patience never faltered. May your days be peaceful and your heart heal rapidly. We are here for you if you need anything.

Love, Irene, Bernadine, Anna Marie, Margie and Francine.

To my dear sister,
Remembering the times in the garden with Lucy picking corn and you laughing and your beautiful smile. A smile you always seem to have no matter how bad your day was going. You will be dearly missed.

Love Always,
Your sister, Irene.
