My beautiful Mother, it's been three rough years being without you. You are in my thoughts daily. It's truly all the distractions is how I get by day after day. When alone, especially during the long drive to work is when I'm in that special place thinking about you and so many memories of all of us together. Yes, it hurts but that's ok, as long as you're with me in my mind and in my heart. Traci wanted you to know she's thinking about you. I saw her today and so glad I did. Tony cooked a nice meal for us. We got you flowers, Dad and Tony got you beautiful red and white roses with some other pretty flowers for you, our beautiful mother. Mom, we can't say in words how much we love you and how much you're missed. You are ALWAYS in our ❤. Love, Amy, Tony and Dad

Mom, another year has gone by without you. People say it will get easier over time, that's not true. I miss you more than ever and really can use your love, affection, and humor these days. There is no one that can replace the special and beautiful person you were to me and so many others. I love you Mom, Anthony

To my beautiful Mother, I miss you so much. I think of you all the time, wishing you were here with us. I remember how much you loved to decorate for Christmas while listening to your Christmas albums like Johnny Mathis and me and Tony would help you decorate. We always had a lot of family come over and you would cook incredible dinners. All I have left are memories of you, so many wonderful memories but it's painful because I want you with us so bad. I can never tell you enough how much I love you. Dad, Tony and I love and miss you very much. Our beautiful Mom. You are always in my heart.

To my beautiful Mom, it's your Birthday today and I wish you were here to celebrate with you. What I would give to see you again and talk like we used to. I could never tell you enough how much I love you. You were always and always will be the most important person in my life and I love you and miss you like crazy. You always brightened up my days, now it's just so lonely without you. You're always on my mind and forever in my heart. I LOVE YOU. Love, your daughter Amy

Mom, I miss you so much. I want to talk to you, hug you and tell you I love you. It's really hard without you here with us. We got you flowers for Mothers Day. Tony picked flowers out of his garden and made a pretty arrangement for you. Our beautiful Mom, we love you and miss you. You are always in our hearts. Love, Amy, Tony and Dad.

Mom, I can't tell you enough how much I miss you. Every day I wish you were here with us and it's so painful because you're not.

I love you so much and miss you immensely. You are always in my heart. I LOVE YOU, MOM.

My dear sister Irene, We miss you so very much, sometimes it is still hard to believe you are not there for us to talk to, to laugh with, or enjoy a meal in your beautiful home. You are loved.

Mom, I miss you so much, it's hard to take. The other day at work I was thinking to myself, I want to call my Mom, and then I realized that I can't. I want and need you here with us. Life is so empty without you. Dad and I went to Aunt Jo's and Joann mentioned you in remembrance. On the way home me and Dad were remembering how you would decorate the house at Christmas while listening to your Christmas music, including Johnny Mathis. I remember when we lived on Harold Street your silver Christmas tree with the red, green and yellow light that rotated to make the tree different colors and the excellent meals you cooked for many for so many years. The last Christmas with you and Bianca was our last Christmas cause there is nothing more to celebrate if your not here. Every day I wish you were here. I can never even begin to tell you how much I love you and miss you. You are ALWAYS in my heart. I LOVE YOU.

To a dear sister that is missed so much, but will always be in my heart. It is hard to believe a year has passed since Irene left us, she touched so many with her love and caring, a part of her will always be with us, and what she left behind will live forever. God be with you Irene. Love, Jo.

Mom, it's been a year now. Sometimes it doesn't seem so long and then other times it feels like it's been forever. Either way, it is so hard to be without you here with us. I miss you every single day and every single day I wish you were here. Oh Mom, I love you and miss you so, so much. I talked to Tracy tonight and she said Hi and she gives you a hug. Dad, Tony and I love you and miss you, you are forever in our hearts. Your daughter, Amy

Mom, I miss you so much. There is nothing to celebrate anymore now that you're not here with us. Today is just one more day without you. I remember how much you liked the house all decorated with Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree. I will keep that and so many more memories with me and treasure them. I wish every day that you were here with us. You are and will always be in my heart. I love you, Mom.

Mom, I'm always thinking about you and miss you so much every day, but some days seem harder than others, today is one of them. Oh, how I wish you were here with us, seeing your beautiful smile and hearing your laugh. I love you. Your daughter, Amy

I will miss you so much my dear sister Irene. I will always remember how we laughed and enjoyed our times together; sometimes we cried; we could always talk and lean on each other. You were so special to me, a great sister and friend too. I admired you in so many ways; your kindness, your caring, your competence, and beauty, inside and out. You were also the most gracious and wonderful cook I knew. I will always remember and treasure these gifts from you. I will miss you dear sister. May you rest in God's love and peace. love, Jo.

Mom, you have always been the most special, beautiful person (inside and out) and most important person in my life and you still are. I'm so sad to have to live life without you. I miss your laughter and your sarcasm so much. I miss you terribly. I lost my mother, my best friend, but I carry all the precious memories with me forever. Mom, you are forever in my heart. Mom, I love you and I miss you so much. Your daughter, Amy

Aunt Irene is one of my favorite Aunts. She was always so welcoming and happy to see us. She would always open her home to anyone, even teach us to cook, and fill her kitchen and her day. She could cook! When I think of her, I think of her happines, love and spirit, she was always ready to laugh and love. She has been and always will be a symbol of beauty and elegance. Even though she should have been put on the highest pedestal, she never put herself above anyone. Her happiness and spirit of life was so strong you could not help but laugh with her, even through the hard times. She has given me so much happiness, love, and shown me how to have the love of life. She will always be a standard I strive to live by. I love you Aunt Irene.

My Mom, best friend, psychiatrist, and the person that kept me confident and always made me believe that all will be alright regardless of my sometimes self destructive actions. Thank you for all you left with me and I will use these qualities the best I can. I love you with all I have and you will always be missed. Your Son, Anthony
