  1. My heart goes out to my cousins Bobby, Billy, Tinna and Ruthie on the loss of their mother, and to her sister and brothers on the loss of their sister. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. My Aunt Chicky was my favorite Aunt and I love her dearly. My fondest memories are when I was still living in CT, and every Sunday was Aunt Chicky Day. My kids and I would go spend the day with her, go out for lunch,and just sit and talk and laugh, she was funny, always had a great sense of humor. I will cherish those memories always. I miss you Aunt Chicky,and you will ALWAYS, ALWAYS have a special place in our hearts. My husband Paul played Elvis all day yesterday for you as he knows you are a HUGE fan of Elvis, and he wanted to honor you. RIP Aunt Chicky, I know you will be watching over all of us,and will keep us safe. I love you – Roberta
