Gina, Angela and Lydia,

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a good friend and mentor to me. I learned so much from her while I worked at Kingsbury, including how to make meatballs and sauce/gravy. As I typed your names, I remember her naming a horse she from a night at the races at the Sons of Italy, GAL, using your initials. Lots of memories and good times. Again, so sorry for your loss. Jean will be missed.

No one loves you like your Mom. Mine had a way of making the best of situations with humor, kindness and an overall sense that all would work out. I remember after the birth of our daughter, she thanked me for making her a grandmother. On each of my birthdays I thanked her for having me. She encouraged me to always give things my all and to be kind. There’s an expression that I have heard and now understand: “When my eyes close for the last time, yours will open”. Mom, I see all of the love, sacrifices, concern, faith, help, support, Joy, laughter, tears, shared experiences, life events, wonder, confidence, fear, doubt, and all that made you human as well as my Angel. I will always love and miss you but with all you have given to me, the richness of your spirit is and always will be my strength. It makes me happy that you heard Jesus calling and are with Him now. Be happy, Mommy.

Aunt Jean was an intelligent, kind woman with a great sense of humor. She loved her girls. Even though I haven’t seen her in a long time, I will always remember her.
