I remember Momma. She was a homemaker, who always seemed to be in the kitchen. Wake up,fried eggs,homefries,Italian sausage. Took lunch( salami or capacola,provalona cheese,or pepperoni sanwiches) to school.Mom was a phenomial baker.Grew up on Italian cookies,variety of cakes and her out standing Leomon Marange pie.I remember Momma helping me with homework,shool projects, catachism. Momma did laundry-ringer washer,hung clothes out in 0 to 90 degree temperatures. In the winter the clothes were "dry" but stiff as heck. Momma said my nigfhtly prayers with me and was always there. Momma did many things ,cook ,bake, house clean and laundry.I remember all these things,but most of all, I remember MOMMA! What are your memories of significant people in your life?

Isn't that true? I find it always a mystery how God shares His love with us. The Docs said,"6 weeks and "by the grace of God", Angela was with her family 37 months. What a blessing for her parents, grandparents and her. Best to all of you. Pete

I remember Angela. She was born on January 30, 2002 with a condition known as holoprosencephaly. She was born without a brain and the doctors said that she would only live for about 6 weeks at the most so her parents (my son and daughter-in-law) should just leave her in the hospital. They didn't. that little girl was a joy to us for 37 months until March 27 2005 when she left us. I will always remember Angela and the way she laughed and watched everything she was not supposed to be able to do, We would have missed all the joy she gave us if her parents had followed the doctor's recommendations. I miss her every minute of every day.

Caliafiosgram62,I am sorry for you terrible loss .I can't imagin the pain you and your family live with day in and day out.Please hold on to the joy that your grand daughter gave each of you. You were given Angela's love for as long as she could offer it. I am certain that Angela was aware of the love all of you had for her. My deepest simpathy, Pete

Thank you so much sir. When we got the phone call from our son telling us what had happened, and on the way to their house at midnight (a 2 1/2 hour drive) all I could thing of on the way was thank you God for 37 months of pure joy. Because that's what we had and we are forever grateful for the time she was with us and we learned so much from her …

I remember my grandmother Georgina. She was a diabetic whose life ended to short. I remember her coming down to our home was I was little to have Thanksgiving dinner with the whole family. I remember watching her in the bathroom as she gave herself her insulin shot. My grandmother died at the age of 58 of a massive heart attack, a complication of Diabetes. I know she looks down on me today and is helping me to fight the good fight against Diabetes. Love you gram. You will always be in my heart.
