Grandmama, I don't know where to begin, we had so much fun everytime we went out together and with the family. You loved to eat at Red Robin's, Dunleavys, O'Connor's and talk to the owner who also was from New York. You looked forward to going to Adult Day Care as you thought you were going to work. You lived going around the corner yo our little farm market and pet the animals and listen to the music. You loved picking the fresh produce off the tables. Everyday when it was warm you were ready for your walks and sitting outside listening to all the birds and watching them eat, as the sunshine warned your smiling face. Rest peacefully in your loves arms once again, dancing with your brother & sister. It's been a long goodbye my grandmama, your are no longer in pain, and more beautiful then ever.

Mom I am so sad, I miss you so much. But, I have so many really good memories that come to mind and I will cherish forever. How about the many weekend trips to Cape May in the summer. Mom you loved seeing the dolphins in the ocean and they would jump and yes, I know they were waving to you! Then I will always remember our vacations to Florida. How you loved the pool. the hot tub and of course the Disney Parks, you were so happy then. You would have your bags packed for weeks before we would leave. Oh, I can't forget when we were home and would go to Olive Garden, how you loved the chicken parm, but the big hit was the salad with extra olives, just for you I have so many good memories that I can go back on mom. Most of all I want to say how much I love you. You missed daddy so much. Now you can be with him and Bobby too. We will always keep you, Dad and Bobby in our prayers and hearts, I am having several masses for you and will always have them. I know you wanted a mass. You will always be my mommy, no one will ever take that away from me. May God bless you keep you safe, warm and happy forever in his heavenly home. Oh, I hope they have Good Humor strawberry shortcake ice cream for you too, that was a big favorite of yours.
Love you forever,
Patsy and Bob
