My mother was the most sweet and loving person we will miss her so very much. I wanted to thank everyone that came to the viewing and funeral. We appreciate all the cards, flowers, masses and prayers. I have some address but I don't have all so I would like to thank Norma Young for the card and Memorial Remembrance prayers, sacrifices and good works of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement including Masses offered by Friar Priests at Graymoor and throughout the World. The Priests and Brothers of the Passionist Community will remember Mom n their Masses and Prayers offered at the Sacared Heart Monastery From her longtime friend Deanie Staub. We appreciate all the prayers and kindness and thoughtfulness of everyone. God bless you all we love you all from our Family.

Sissy definitely will be missed. So many people loved her. She was the most sweetest, caring, loving, compassionate women. She had love for everyone she met. She would do anything and everything she could for you. She was loved by everyone she knew and knew her. She was truly an angel on earth. She loved playing cards, spending time w her family, especially time out on the boat w her son Buzz, and she especially treasured her time spent with her birthday girl, her niece Donna. She looked forward to it every year. We would always celebrate by going out to eat and to the movies. It was such a special time for us all. We will be forever grateful to have spent this time w her and call her our aunt, sister, best friend and our second mom. We love you Sissy very very much. We will miss you greatly but know you will always be by our side. RIP our sweetness.
