Frank, Lori and Frank Jr....there are no words to comfort you at this time...I realize that, but know that your mom was admired and loved by many people. I used to kid your dad that he was lucky to have found her...she was the best half! Sending my thoughts, prayers and hugs to all.

My grandma was always excited to see and spend time with us. She always had something ready to bake, paint, or make when we came over. I will miss decorating cookies, making jewelry, and of course making meatballs with her. Everything about her was bright and beautiful and she always made everyone around her feel safe and loved. I will miss her and live and act through kindness as she always did.
