  6. dear doreen, i was sad to hear of your mother’s passing. i have very fond memories of her. i remember being at your house on blake street…she always made me feel comfortable. she had a great disposition and was so silly and she used to make me (and others) laugh. i’m sure you will miss her. please give my regards to your sisters. sincerely, maria mascola mirabella

  7. I don`t know how much sleep I am going to get tonight knowing that tomorrow is the last time I will ever see your face Mommy. I still cannot believe you are gone…and I really don`t know why..so soon. Maybe I was foolish to believe in miracles but I really thought you were going to come home to us. Over the past 2 months you lived with me and Eddie and our children, who really got the chance to bond with you and share in your love. Something over the years that really never happened before. I finally felt a connection to you that know one will ever be able to take away from me. Over the years we have had our many ups and downs and for whatever reasons circumstances kept us apart, but I know in my heart of hearts that you believed in me and loved me and I did whatever humanly possible to make your last remaining time here on earth surrounded by love and laughter. I will miss you terribly, and my life will never be the same without you..but I know you are at peace with Daddy looking down on me and my family knowing you loved and forgave me and I forgave you and your love and spirit will live on in my children, especially Carina who shares your birthday and your face…I love you so very much….your baby…Lynda xoxo

  8. Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time, I can only think back to the days on Blake Street when we all were much younger and our families were much closer. Sometimes for whatever reason life changes and we all move on. So we all must remember that in the end the most important thing in life is family. God bless you Auntie Theresa may you rest in peace.
