Dear Grandma, I will always carry with me the memory of your unconditional loving spirit and how you brought light to everyone around you. I still remember days when you, your daughter Josephine, and Elaine would laugh hysterically, almost to tears, which happened often when the three of you got together. My life was truly blessed in knowing you... Love John (your Giovanni)

Dearest Grandma, You will be so very missed. What I will remember most is your laugh and your smile and how much you liked to have fun. Now you are making others in heaven smile too. Love always, Elaine
