    Mom,

    I will miss you so much! You are the strongest person I ever known! I got my love for cooking from you. We had some nice trips just you and I. The most memorable was going to Norfolk,Virginia to see Kevin's ship come in from the Persian Golf war. My girls loved you so much and could not wait to go visit! You are now finally at peace with dad, your siblings and your mom and dad ( that you have not seen since you were seven years old) 

    Until we meet again,

    Your loving daughter

    I've known Kay almost half of my life. I enjoyed the times we had like @ the SS Irish parade and special holidays and events together.She was a wonderful grandmother to all my girls.They always spoke on how they loved her cooking. (especially sweesish meatballs) I know her and Paul are probably dancing to a old Dean Martin song in Heaven right now!
