 How do we say goodbye to the rock of our family.  No one was as strong as our sweet mom. She took us on so many adventures. She taught us how to go clamming and make chowder. She taught us how to fish and bait our own hook. She taught us about Jesus and loved us fiercely. She taught us how important it was to spend time with family making memories. She even took us across the country in a station wagon with a tent. She was up for any and every adventure. She said she loved going on errands but I suspect it was because she just loved being with us. She loved her 4 grandsons with all of her heart and never missed an opportunity to brag about them. She loved her great grandson and he adored her! She taught herself Spanish. Did the NY crossword puzzle in ink. She recently learned how to play dominoes and loved winning! There was literally nothing she couldn’t do. She was an amazing mom, big sister to her favorite brother, Nana and abuela and her passing has left a hole in our hearts. We also know she is in heaven having the best reunion with our sweet Daddy and her Momma and Daddy. We love you mom so very much. We will miss you terribly. Thank you for all of the adventures.
