|Let the memory of Kathleen be with us forever|
"Dear Mom, Merry Christmas to you. I thought of you on the trip to Cambridge/Somerville tonight, Christmas Eve. You were always in the back seat, you were not there tonight. I miss that so much. So many memories, so many changes, so many of our loved ones gone. You are forever in my thoughts every day and especially tonight, I miss you and love you so much. Come visit me in my dreams, I miss you and would love to see you. Love, Christine"
Happy Birthday to you! 81, huh!?!?!?! Still the sparkle queen, although I have to tell you, Alyssa is a close second! I miss you so much and think of often. I have lots of little things that remind me of you! I miss you Gram, I wish you were here to see the kids! I know you are no longer suffering and at peace and for that, I'm grateful! You are always loved and always missed! Until we meet again (which hopefully won't be for a long time!) keep watching over us and please let me win big on the scratch ticket I'm going to buy in your honor today!
Love , Sarah"
"Dear Mom, Happy 81st Birthday! I hope you're eating chinese food and scratching a few tickets. I know you're celebrating with all your family that are there with you. Watch over them for us until we are there with all of you some day. There is not a day that goes by that I don' think of you. You are still so missed and life is not the same without you. I can still picture you sitting at my table doing the crossword puzzle on Sundays. I miss those days but I know you are no longer suffering and you are able to breathe easy. I love you forever, Christine"
"Dear Kathy, just know how much you are missed by so many. Hope you are keeping an eye on our Dear Kel, and Papa, and Jim Bob. The birds are still watching you."
"Okay, I'm the first one to visit - hello Mom! I hope you continue to watch over each and every one of us - We're doing our best, really. (with what and whom we've got to work with). I love you today, and always, and miss all of you that we've lost, tremendously. XOXOXO"
"Hey Mamasita, Happy New Year! I miss calling you every New Year's Eve to ring in the new and out with the old. I never missed a night since I turned 18. Okay, as the years went by you told me to call you at 10:00 p.m. because you'd be asleep at midnight. We always rang in the New Year together. Well, I'm ringing it in with you again but in a different way. I miss you so much every day. I can't wait to see you again someday. What a party you must be having with Kelly, Jimmy and Joey, the best! I love you all and wish you all a wonderful 2016! See you again someday. I look forward to that day and that gives me freedom from fear. I love you so much and always will. Your loving daughter, Christine"
"Okay, here's a beautiful flower for you Mom on your 80th, You Go Girl - Straight to the Party! Put lots of glitter on, we don't want anyone missing you on this special day!!! Have fun - I know you will!!! I love you Mom, xoxox Kathy"
"Dear Mom, Happy 80th Birthday! How I wish we could have a big celebration for you today. But, as Steve said in his message to you, there are enough of you in heaven for you to have a big party there. You'd be scratching away at your birthday lottery tickets today hoping to win a million. The funny thing was, I always knew you wanted to win that money to help your kids. You didn't want it for anything. You were never able to give us millions but you gave us so much more. I still miss you more than ever. I'm still going by your house and sitting outside for a few minutes. Always wishing I could go in to visit. It's not the same without you. Give Kelly a big hug for us and show me a sign once in a while. I love you, Christine"
"Hi Kathy, just a quick note on your birthday. Still missed by many, including your bird friends. There must be enough of you to have quite the party, now. Don't get Papa in any more trouble, and give our Kelly a big hug too. Love Steve"
"Hi Mom, Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you and missing you as much as ever. I know you're wondering why the hell Jimmy, Kelly and Joey are there with you. We're wondering the same. Please wrap your arms around them and take care of them for us until we are all reunited. I look forward to that day but I will enjoy my time on Earth until the time comes.
I was at the camp today doing the New York Times crossword puzzle and it brought back so many memories. We had a lot of good ones and I laugh at the thought of a lot of them. Who's on first? We did have some good times.
Thank you for being a wonderful mother to us. I know you are okay but I miss you so much. Watch over all of us and give us a helping hand along the way. We need you.
You are forever in my thoughts,
"Dear Mom, Happy Mothers Day to you! You were so missed today. I miss your glitter, your wit, your sarcasm, your advice and your love. I miss everything about you. That love was always so unconditional. You were more than a mother, you were a strong smart woman who raised strong, smart women.
You would love my grandkids, Alyssa is right up your alley, you could swap clothes with her. She inherited your love for glitter and sarcasm. Adam, you'd kill him. He'd match you barb for barb but you'd win. So far, none of us have. Christian, you never met him but you must be watching over him because he's an angel.
I know I was lucky to have you for so many years but I am selfish, I wanted you forever. Happy Mothers Day.
Your loving daughter, Christine"
"HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOMMA< I LOVE YOU!! HAVE ONE FOR ME!!"
"Where does the time go, Kathy? It's hard to believe that it's been 4 years since you've passed. You must know how much you are missed by so many. Though it's been a couple of hard years for us, we are all looking forward to seeing everyone again hopefully in heaven. Love you! Birds are still watching you."
"Mama, I don't know what to say today..........life has thrown me some curve balls and I could use you more than ever but I thank God you're not here to see it! What do I do without my mother? What do I do without my daughter? What do I do for Nik and Jamie? I'm just lost without you and your guidance. I love you Mom; I hope there's truly a Heaven because I need to see you again. I love you xoxox"
Thinking of you extra today and missing you always. I hope you know how much you are missed! I miss calling you and coming to visit for one of our Harrison's lunch dates! We would always joke about how much fries they gave us what kind of gluttons can eat all that, then next thing you know they were gone!!!!!! I miss your witty personality and sense of humor the most! You were so much fun. I know you are at peace now which brings me peace, because I know how you struggled. Please keep a watchful eye over us. I love you, Gram!
Love, Your Granddaughter, Sarah"
"Dear Mom, It's hard to believe it has been four years since you've been gone. I miss you so much. Every once in a while I go by your house and sit outside wishing I could go in and plop in the chair. I miss our crossword competitions every Sunday, calling each other to see if we got the final Jeopardy answer; kidding each other if one of us didn't get the answer, patting ourselves on the back if we did. I just miss everything about you. You deserve the peace you have now attained. I know you are breathing without struggle and are with the family members who have gone before and after you. Someday we will have a family reunion in heaven. Until that day, you are forever in my heart. I love and miss you every day. Love, Christine"
"i miss you so much< i miss cooking for you. i miss walking across the city to bring you cigs. throwing the keys down then searching through the snow for them! i miss you in every way you always kept me in line! and thats not so easy to do, but we ate good didnt we?? nothing too good for you! im sorry i was a drunk pain in the ass at times get ready, were gonna eat and drink again! ilove and miss you
your loving son jamie"
"Hi mom, I Miss you. Merry Christmas. XOXO
"Dear Mom, Merry Christmas to you. We went to Peggy and Dave's last night and I was thinking of you all night. The many years we went there together on Christmas Eve and all the good times we had with them. I miss those times and wish I could have them back. I just want you to know I am thinking about you and missing you. Have a nice Christmas drink with Kelly and Joey. I love you, Christine"
"Dear Mom, Happy belated Thanksgiving! I didn't forget about you, just had a busy day and had lots of other things on my mind. It was our first Thanksgiving without Kelly so we were trying to get through that. We did but she was in our thoughts all day and it was not easy. Her presence was missed so much but there is nothing we can do but keep her close in our hearts. We still hurt so much and it's been a tough year. We're all lost in our grief and I'm missing your guidance. Keep watching over us and take care of Kelly for us. I can't wait until the day when we're all reunited again. Until then, I don't have to worry about Joey throwing the turkey out of the kitchen window! Keep an eye on him for us. We miss all of you so much and there is a huge void in our lives without all of you. I think of you every day of my life and I miss you every day of my life. You will NEVER be forgotten. I love you, Christine"
"Dear Mom, Happy Birthday to you. I know you're having a big birthday celebration today because you're with a lot of your favorite people and they all love a party. There are a few you'll have to keep an eye on, ahem, Joey and Kelly! I miss you every day of my life. Some days I drive to your house and just sit outside. I wish so much I could go in and just plop in the chair and watch Cash Cab with you. I'll never forget that the Australian musical instrument is called a didgeridoo, as in, didgeridoo your kitchen over? (You have to have a Boston accent to get that one!). Or that the longest winding street in San Francisco is Lombard Street as in Carol Lombard, the actress! We had some good times together and a lot of laughs. Today is Sunday and I'm doing my crossword puzzles and thinking of all the times you sat at my kitchen table on Sundays having our crossword competitions! I'll never forget the laughs we used to have over them. I was always jokingly accused you of trying to look at my answers and cheating! As if you would ever have to do that. You were a fountain of knowledge and you taught me so much. I think of you every day and I miss you every day but I know someday we will meet again and I can give you a big hug! Until then, Happy Birthday and I love you forever. Your loving daughter, Christine"
"Happy Birthday, Gram! Thinking of you on this sunny Sunday morning and wishing I could call you instead of write but hopefully you get the message! I miss you so much but I have to say that I do feel your presence with me a lot. I smile to myself every time Alyssa comes down in one of her famous head to toe glitter outfits! I know you'd love that!! Just the other day Adam was being fresh so I asked him one of your favorite questions to us kids "want me to warm your ass?" You never did though, you were all talk!!!! I wish you were here to meet Christian! You would love him, he's such a happy boy and he would love his great g-ma!!!! Alyssa had to write an essay at school about why she likes to read and she quoted you from the note you wrote her in the Dr Seuss book you gave her. She said "as my great grandmother said, reading takes you places you may never get to go"! They read that book all the time! Alyssa is obsessed with Harry Potter so your books will be in good hands! I hope you are with my Dad and Kelly. I wish I had them here with me but I am comforted knowing you are with them. Three of my favorite people! Well Gram, as you can see, I miss talking with you. I could go on all day. You were one person I could always talk to no matter what and I have to say I miss that. You always listened and even if you didn't agree you still have good advice. Happy Birthday to you, I'll go pick up some "tickies" for you today so send me a winner will ya please?!!?!!!!! I love you, Gram. Happy Birthday with love from your Granddaughter Sarah"
"Wishing you were here to wish you a happy birthday in person, but know you're missed by many. Keep your arms around our Kelly. Don't get Papa into trouble. The birds are still watching you. Love you."
Just sitting on my couch looking at your pictures on my mantle. There is not a day that goes by I do not think of you. I miss and love you so much. I know you are in a better place but I wish I could just get one more hug to carry me through this chapter of my life. I love you, Andrea"
"Mom, I'm missing you so much these days. I talked about you last night; your sense of humor, your shoulder to lean on, your wisdom, the comic strips you left behind, you did give us a laugh from the "grave". I laughed about you when I spoke of you, they were happy memories. You did have a great sense of humor and it shone through in our moments of grief. You were one "Hot Ticket". You're gone, Papa's gone and worst of all, we somehow lost our beautiful Kelly! How did this happen?
We need you now more than ever. Take care of Kelly and take care of us. I miss you and will never forget you. I think of you every day, that is the loving memory I will always carry.
"Happy Mother's Day. Thinking of you today and missing you so much. I know you're sharing this day with your Mom so that makes me happy. I will always love you, Christine"
"HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOMMA. I LOVE YOU. KATHY. XOXO"
"Dear Mom, Wow, 3 years have passed in the blink of an eye. I miss you every day. I'm always going by your apartment and wishing I could jump out of my car for a visit with you. I miss calling you for advice or just to have a shoulder to lean on. We all really could use your presence this year but you are right where you belong because there is somebody who needs you more, our beautiful Kelly. She needed you to be there to welcome her into Heaven and to take care of her for us. Kathy had a vision of you with your arms open beckoning Kelly to you so I know she is with you. We miss you both so much. Our hearts ache and it hurts so bad when you lose somebody you love but we will all meet again. In the meantime, I know you, Kelly and Joey are raisin' a little hell up there and are all probably on probation. Behave, we'd like to see you there when we arrive! I love you, Christine"
"Hi kat, know that you are missed every day by so many. Keep your arms around our Kelly Marie. Love and miss you. Say hi to Wally Raneo when you see him."
Thinking of you on this rainy morning, where the heck is the sun?! I can't believe it's been three years since I've seen you. I miss you lots. I never realized how much I turned to you to talk until you were no longer there for me to do so. You always listened and it was comforting to know you were there. I hope you are at peace and that you will continue to watch over us all. You would get a real kick out of the kids. They have turned into quite characters! I know you have some new company up there in heaven with you. When my dad died, one of the first things I thought was "good, he's with Gram". Now Kelly has joined you. It comforts me to know you are together. Three people I loved very much and still do. I was laughing not too long ago about my dad throwing his empt nips behind your couch!!!! Also thinking about all the times Kelly and I spent with you. Thanks to you two I'm 32 years old still petrified of scary movies! When Alyssa gets older and does her hair I'll dump a pan of water over her head in honor of you and Kelly!!! Or the times Kelly would lock me in a room and try to get me to swear and you were outside the door to see if I would! Just for the record, I never did!!!! I could go on and on, the memories will never die. I keep them in my heart and look back with a smile. We had a lot of good times. I miss coming over and having our Harrisons roast beef and fries and talking about everyone as if we were so perfect!! Hey, someone has to be! I feel very lucky to have had a grandmother like you, you were a great one. I miss you always, Gram and I love you. Send me another shooting star will you?!
Love, your granddaughter Sarah"
"Dear Mom, We said goodbye to Kelly this Sunday. I'm so sad she's gone from us; there is a huge void in our lives and our hearts are aching. Hold her in your arms for us until we can see her again. Until then, we will hold her in our hearts. I love and miss you both so much. Love, Christine"
"Hey Glitter Queen, Happy New Year! miss you so much. I think about you every day. I'm glad you're no longer suffering. I love you, Christine"
"Dear Mom, Happy Thanksgiving. I missed you today but I certainly didn't forget you. It's so hard to believe its our 3rd Thanksgiving without you. As I always said to you every Thanksgiving, gobble, gobble! I love you.
"I know you heard me say "Happy Birthday" in the a.m. and I totally heard (out loud - again) - "thank you" in your voice.
Hope you enjoyed and things are "heavenly" - I read that the flowers are 100 times brighter than on earth - throw me a beautiful red rose! XOXO"
Thinking of you today on what would have been your 78th birthday. Shedding a few tears because I'm still missing you more than ever. We'll be having Chinese food for dinner tonight in your honor while we cheer on the Red Sox in their bid for a World Series win. Happy Birthday!"
"Dear Mom, When will the pain ever get easier...NEVER! You are missed every day. After more than two years we are still trying to get used to life without you. Your impact is everywhere and I turn to you so many times a day and you are not physically here although there are so many reminders of you everywhere! We miss your wisdom and guidance. I will always love you, Christine"
Just thinking of you - again, today!! I love you and miss you so much!! The brats are doing good and Danielle just bought her first car! Zack's working! Yes, thing are pretty good- Work/school hard - but my character is **beyond compare** as you would want xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo"
"Happy birthday Gram! You have crossed my mind a lot lately and of course especially today. I know that you're much more comfortable where you are now than you were for your final months here on Earth, but it doesn't make it any easier to spend days without you or say goodbye. Your tough love attitude and sense of humor are dearly missed by all and we all love you. Happy birthday. Nik."
"Happy birthday, Grandma!! I wish you were here so that we could celebrate your special day with you, but I know you're here in spirit, and I'm sure you're having tons of fun up in Heaven. :) I accidentally opened the contacts screen in my phone the other day, and I looked down to see that I was calling your number. Wish you could have picked up. I miss you, and love you always. Love, Jamie"
"Hi Mama, You would have been 77 today but God decided to bring you home while you were still young and beautiful. You were always beautiful and I thank you for that because I look just like you! Sorry girls! With your leaving us my faith was renewed in God because I need to believe that you are in a better place. Please rest peacefully and know that we are ok. I love you. Cheryl"
"Happy Birthday, Gram! I am thinking of you all day today as I always do. I wish you were here with us but I'm so glad to know you are up there looking down on all of us. I hope we are making you proud! I miss you so much but I see signs of you all the time so I know you are with me. Love, Sarah"
"Happy Birthday Mama. You are missed as much today as the day you left us. I think about you every day but especially today. I would have brought you chinese food and cake to celebrate you special day today. I think it is appropriate that was the last meal I brought you from Peter's birthday party and that the cake was the last meal you ate. You always loved your sweets!"
"Happy Birthday to you, Kathy. You're missed every day in our house. God Bless!"
Teaching the bratty seventh graders today - although I'm doing it "your style" so they know not to mess with me.
Miss you terribly - tough days. Kathy"
"THE SCARVES IN THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURE OF FAMILY MEMBERS WERE MADE BY JOANNE YORE! AND WE LOVED 'EM, AS YOU CAN TELL! JAMIE - SILVER IS YOUR COLOR, DARLING!"

I'm so happy you & I always had a close relationship, I will never forget your smile and laugh, there's none like it! I miss you and love you always! Love, Sarah"
"Happy Mothers day Kathy. Thinking of you today. Love Peter"
"Dear Mom, Happy Mother's Day! I'm missing you so much today but I feel like you're with us. Peter and I worked in the yard all day yesterday and I finally put your urn in the garden Peter created for you. I promised you I would do that and that you would be with us forever... and you are. I feel like you're home and that you'll be celebrating the day with us. Love always, Christine"

"Mom, You're missed every day but never more than today! I love you and miss you so much; I've lost the best friend I ever had. I'll hold you gently and very close to my heart every minute of today. Happy Mother's Day...........you were the best there was! All my love to you, Cheryl xoxoxoxo"
"Hi, Gram. Although I've always felt you were with me, it's so nice to be able to write to you here. I can't believe it's been a year since you've been gone, but it makes me smile to think that you've been able to travel alongside me in Italy! I brought your rosary and picture with me whenever I went anywhere; it's nice to see that pretty face once in a while. I miss you and love you! xoxo!"
"Hi Mama, Why is it that I'm missing you more today than yesterday? My love for you will never wane. I'm so glad Kathy set up this web site; it brings us all together again. I miss you Mama........you're my guiding light. Always in my heart, Cheryl xoxoxox"
"hey mom,not a day goes by that you dont come to mind and, even though its been a year it seems like yesterday since i last saw you ! i know you're at peace and resting well. i miss you more than words could ever express and im glad you never sent me back to my real mother! you will always be in my heart mom i love you! your loving son jamie"
"P.S. Danielle did not like my song chosen so I've switched it up today - just for you - I know you loved this!
I did it My Way - you always did, Mom. I get that from you - THANKS!"
That's my second (or third) Hi today! Hope you're at peace today - I am knowing that you rest easily - nor more pain or worries.
"Hey Kathy, it's hard to believe a year has passed since you've been gone. Just so you know, while you've been watching the birds, the birds have been watching you. Miss you and God Bless!"
"Losing you was a tremendous loss, but I know you are still with us, looking down on your family. I hope to always make you proud & I will carry you with me forever. Thinking of you, not just today, but always. I miss chatting & laughing with you & I cherish all of the memories I have of you. I love you so much. Love, your granddaughter Sarah"
"Mom, I miss you so much. You're still my best friend. Rest gently. Love and kisses, Cheryl P.S. I'll buy us a Mass Cash tonight! xoxo
(GREAT PICTURE HERE OF YOU AND "THE KIDS"!) I'm so sorry now that I wasn't there."
It's hard to believe 1 year has passed since you left us. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you so much. I'm glad you're finally at peace and no longer suffering. I love you. Christine"
Have a suggestion for us?
