Mom lived a long life filled with happy times and lots of challenges. She had experiences I can't begin to imagine how I would have coped. She loved her family dearly. She was happiest sharing in the lives of her children and grandchildren. She was a great cook and fed everyone who walked into her kitchen. I will remember her every time I bake her butter cookie recipe. Mom loved opera. She had a beautiful soprano voice, as good as any I've heard on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House. Only her family had the pleasure of enjoying her talent when she sang along with the Saturday afternoon radio broadcasts from the Met. Rest in peace, Mom. You deserve heavenly rest after the long and difficult road you walked. I will miss you. Love you always, Joanne

Dear Mom, Thank you for being you. Your unconditional love gave us the foundation to build on as we grew into the people who we are today. You took care of us, made a home for us and were the root of many of the traditions we carry with us today. You fed us well and all were welcome at our table. You will always be with me and there will not be a day when I do something that doesn’t remind me of you. I miss you with all my heart. It brings me comfort knowing you’re with Dad now. I love you.
