We will miss you, grandma! You are a fixture of our family, and it's hard to picture a gathering without you. You made everything seem so special, no matter if it were Christmas Eve or a simple visit from me and Luna! Thank you for all the love and happy memories.

GiGi was a wonderful, thoughtful and caring woman, so many great memories over the years. She set a great example of how to live and did anything for her family. She will be missed!

Millie was the best mother-in-law a guy could ever have. She was funny, loving, supportive, smart, generous and progressive. Near the end, we had an understanding: I would pray for her peaceful death, and once in Heaven, she would put in a good word for me. I did, and I know she will.

God speed, Mom,
