Grammy… my only Grammy, you were so much to so many. Always giving always ready to ensure I got to ride Cherokee pony at the park, always a shopping buddy, always a good presence to learn from. All the times in the Santa Maria pool…helped me with math. Corn chowder! Big Band. I am proud to be worldly and exposed to the things before my time. You will always be with us this I know. I think of you always with happiness and fondness of memory. Xoxo Love always. Mere- Edith

Mom, I cannot say everything I feel. You have been the rock of our family. You were the glue that kept us together. You taught me to be classy and to be well mannered, and to be nice to everyone. I will miss you so much. I have a hole in my heart that will take a long time to heal. My beautiful butterfly is watching over me!

Millie, you’re the best Mother in Law that one could forever be blessed with. Thank you for being a special friend with my Mom, and taking her place to watch over me to keep me in my proper place. You will always be a special “Whoa, Whoa” in my/our lives. Thanks for all the special and wonderful memories!

What can I say. For the life we all shared together. The good memories…along with the tested ones. You are my friend ….even though my Mom…..and you are my buddy. The times and experiences we have had only you and I can relate to. You were and always will be my guiding light…my beacon….my marshmallow. I love you eternally and I will see you at the next crossroad of life. I dream of you and feel you close to me always. Your daughter, Marsha (your nickname of me…Marty Babe).

Well mom, it has been exactly 1 year since you passed. I still have a hole in my heart. I think about you all the time. I am the matriarch now, but still cannot live up to your mantra. I love and miss you. Til we meet again! 🙏🙏🌷

To my Mom, my buddy. Got through your grandson’s wedding, Robert III, and knowing you, Dad (Robert Sr.) and your son (Robert Jr.) were looking over the celebration with warmth and love. I still miss you and always will. It’s been a tough year. I will always remember the family memories. Love you eternally. Until we meet again.
