Condolence & Memory Journal

Nana,

I will miss you so much and will always cherish our memories. You were an inspiration. I remember coming over your house when I was younger and the smell of coffee brewing in the kitchen. To this day, every time I smell coffee brewing I think of your house!

You were always so funny and made us all laugh. I remember when you were visiting and were probably tired and wanted to go back home, you would look at the clock and say, "boy that's a nice clock". This gathered our attention that it was time to take you home.

Every Christmas I hang the ornament on the tree that you gave to my parents when I was born. That will forever be hung on the Christmas tree each year. I remember always being really excited to come over when you were making your gravy. It was always so good! And I always remember loving the chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes, pasta "cheech", sausage scallopini, and pizzelles you made. When Erica and I moved into our home, I took notice that I can regularly hear trains from the nearby station. That always reminds me of your house because I could hear the train AND of course the amazing train station set in the basement that you and Pop would always show Mandy and I.

I know you are in heaven with Pop, your parents, and brothers and sisters watching over us all. And I know you were there in spirit at our wedding last weekend. Thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Love, Frankie

Marie: I have truly missed you and will continue to miss you! I have many good memories since I have known you for most of my life! I hope you and Julio are now together in that much better place with Our Lord and Savior! Hopefully you will continue to watch over all of us here in this crazy place in the world and pray for us! I love you, Nancy

Nana, I feel so lucky to have had you in my life for 31 years, even luckier to be named after you. You truly were one of a kind and I will cherish every single memory I have with you forever. Please watch over all of us. Hope you are having a great time with Pop in heaven. Love you. Until we meet again, Love Maria

P.S. Thank you for always saving me the pink starbursts xoxo

Nana, thank you for all the wonderful memories these past 26 years. I am so lucky to have been your youngest grandchild. Thank you for attending all my dance recitals, graduations, and misc. events. More importantly, I will always cherish all our shopping trips, the days you babysat Maria and I, and even the days I just got to sit next to you and hang out for a few mins or even a few hours. Love, Deanna
