Hi Sis: My phone call to catch up. I miss you so very much. I have to believe you are watching down on us and see how much you are missed. I want to visit Melissa and Family, but feeling so apprehensive. I know my feelings will be upside down on a visit without you there. Send me another sign. Love you to the Heavens! Cher

My Dear Sissy, Tonight your Family will bring you home to rest. My heart is right there with all of them at the beach, your chosen place. Although I'm not there right now I know that Melissa did you proud with her selections, words and tributes. I don't think I would have been able to let you go tonight at the beach, so I'm home. Marie, this is harder than I ever could imagine. A piece of me is gone. I miss you too much. I fill my sorrow with happy growing up memories of us, it helps a little cause we did have a crazy, good childhood. Tough at times, but at todays standards we did have the best. You will always be in my heart and thoughts. Love, Cher

Sissy, I can't stop crying. Give me a sign. I may have to stop seeing you this way, your site. It hurts too much. The kids did such a perfect job memorializing your spirit. I feel close to you this way. I miss you too much. I love you.............................

To our Aunt Marie, We never saw you that often, but when we did, you were always a joy to be around. You always made us laugh. Your smile was infectious! You will be missed. We love you.
Bill, Lynne, Nicole and Jenna Kelley

Oh Marie.. I wish we could have had more time together. However I am grateful for the time we did have.

You were a woman of substance. A Sister, Mother, Daughter, Aunt, Wife, Grandmother, Friend. A truly good person honest unto herself. Our time together was too short. There is only good to be said of you. You are missed. Your sister Roseann.

I'm trying to find the words, words to describe my Sister, through my eyes. Where do I begin?  There is so much to say about Marie. There is so much I feel for her.  Real -- Marie was the most Real woman I know. She had strong opinions on things and would share them.  She had a heart of gold. She believed in right and wrong.  What I admired most about my sister is she had the most genuine soul. She was devoted to her husband and children and grandchildren.  Our bond was strong and everlasting. We talked constantly about everything and anything. We shared our most private secrets, (some we shouldn't have). I was told a certain someone was keeping a tally, and we talked 30 times in one month. LOL, I didn't think that was a lot -- once a day? 
Somewhere in our Family journey our roles switched. Marie became the Older Sister before I knew it. We would share our most intimate secrets, good and bad. She told me things and I told her things and we both said how we felt about it, not always agreeing but REAL. Sisters. She would lecture me like the Older Sister. She gave me that security of a Big Sister. I know she needed a sounding board at times and we were just a phone call away. I was there when she needed, and she was always, always checking in on me. I don't ever remember having a quarrel with Marie, we just never argued.
With Marie there were no disguises.  Nothing was expected in return for your good nature.  Marie Antoinette was who she was. My sister was talented. She worked alongside Terry to create a replica of our childhood town on their railroad track village taking over their dining room, including the Busy Bee (our candy store hangout in Central Islip). I was impressed when she described creating trees by trimming down bottle brushes and painting them green. She was so talented.
I am convinced our sister bond was etched in stone when she and Terry came to my rescue many years ago at the lowest point in my life. We accomplished our mission and rescued my baby. If it were not for their assistance I really am convinced bad things would have happened. But that sealed our bond forever. I will forever be indebted to my sister, Marie and Bro Terry.
I will and do miss her already. My life just won't be the same without her counsel, without her to talk to. I just can't wrap my head around the reality. Another piece of my heart is gone. She was a part of who I am. Our childhood was crazy, but mostly fun. My memories are golden.. You left us just hours past the time of Mom's departure 21 years ago. Just hours. I believe in my heart, that Mommy came to bring you home with her. I believe she ran a little late trying to get her wings on straight and moving and pushing all the angels out of her way to get on her journey. She probably arranged an angel Uber to come get her daughter. So now they are together in heaven. I love you Sis..

There have been years between the last time I saw you, but talking to you on the phone a couple years ago you were the same that I remembered from when I was a little girl. You will be missed by many❤️My condolences to the Walwanis & Lospinuso families.
