Thinking of you two up there together. I am going to Kansas City tomorrow to see Cathie and get/give hugs. Cathie and I have grown very close over the last few years, and I am so grateful for that. You can know that we will take care of each other. Thanks for giving me such a loving sister.

Dad has come up to join you now, Mom. Life will not be the same without you here. I miss both of you terribly already, but I'm hopeful that you are together and at peace. Love you always.

Tomorrow marks a month without you, mom. I'm trying hard to help dad through this but he's really struggling. I know you were everything to each other. I am grateful for all of the precious memories you shared. The two of you raised a loving family, traveled the world, and touched a thousand lives with your caring ways. Dad loved you with all his heart, and so do I. Your love lives on through all of us.

Missing our Sunday morning chats, was a positive way to start a new week. I think of you each day and still "talk" to you often and know you can hear me. You were more than a sister, but my closest friend, with great compassion and positive support always. Be at peace , you were loved dearly. ML

Your grandson turns 25 today.

Shared by Cindy Volpe on June 2, 2021
Sorry you weren't able to be here for Daniel's big 25 today, Mom.  I know you loved him very much.  When he heard you were so sick, he came down from Orlando just to see how he could help.  He wanted badly to go and see you in the hospital, but the "Covid rules" wouldn't allow it, so he helped out with Dad instead, visiting with him, taking him to his doctor's appointment, even bringing him Taco Bell for breakfast by special request. I hope you know how much he loved you.  I know he will remember you always.

White Water Rafting at 76!

Shared by Cindy Volpe on May 31, 2021
Mom’s zest for life was inspirational to me. When faced with an opportunity, she never hesitated, tackling everything in her path with confidence and determination. One of my precious memories of her is white water rafting with Cathie and I when we were celebrating my 50th birthday in Colorado. I was terrified, but she never flinched. She always encouraged me to go, do, have fun. She led an amazing life and taught me so much by example. Thank you, Mom, for being you.
