What is our loss is heaven’s gift. Today we have lost our dear mother, mother-in-law, and beloved grandmother. She always had to gift of being able to smile throughout the hardest of times for her and her loved ones. She could always be counted on to help her family out in any way possible, even when it was inconvenient. She leaves behind her lasting legacy with us, her family. She is survived by her two sons, Vincent and Anthony, and her only daughter, Denise. She had a wonderful second set of children who married into her family and had respect and love for her and called her mom, Julianne, Mary, and Stuart. Her lasting legacy are her grandchildren, whom she loved most. She would always ask for them and never forgot a special occasion and was always present for them. They are Hayley, Taylor, Justin, Vincent, Gianna, Jessica, Julia, Anthony, and Lauren. While an only child, she remained close and traveled often with her cousins, Margaret and Charles. Today as I write this, i wish to think not of the sadness we feel but the happiness she feels,. She sits with her husband, her parents, Aunt Marie, and her beloved dog Pepper. Together they had a positive and lasting influence on those they left behind. We are better people and only have great memories to carry in our heart. Mom, this is not goodbye but until we see each other again. We believe you now remain an angel on our shoulders to guide us throughout life. Thanks you for demonstrating a life well lived for your children and grandchildren. Rest in God’s peace.
