    To my brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews & grandchildren; We all suffered the loss in our own personal way. Each of us having our own “special” bond with Mom (Nana/Pa). May each of us continue to remember the good times we shared with her. To call on the strength we learned from both Mom & Dad to treat others with respect and live the best possible life we can.
    For me personally it still doesn’t seem real. I’m a phone call away if anyone needs to talk, day or night.
    I Love You
