    Walking the streets of San Francisco, accepting all our friends into our home and treating them as your own, taking the Red Line to Hollywood and putting our foot in the footprints of movie stars, hearing Big Band Music and remembering you telling me you worked at Rome Air Force Base when you were 15…..
    So many memories to cherish! Physically I can’t be with you but I close my eyes and there we are again. Mom I love you and I know you will be there waiting for each of us.
    Thanks for being our Mom! ❤❤❤

    Mom I love you so very much and I know you love me. I feel it all around me already, the love that you are around is bigger than this entire universe. My favorite memories for granted with some of the best Christmases a child could ever ask for. I have memories of her rages water fights we would get into the entire family and even would bring in the hoses to into the house and you wouldn’t even get mad. These are some of my Fondest Memories as well as the ones where you and Marty pull up next to us as of this girls were walking to school and tell us to get in the car, not knowing what was going to happen the next thing we new was you had created a surprise legal day off of school to go have fun at Disneyland. The babies would already be in the car and you going to gather up all of us are walking to school and off we go it was the most awesome days ever. I have a lot more memories just not enough space I love you so much Mom and I miss have been missing you for a long time and now I really really miss you but I know you’re in great hands and you’re around nothing but love. Rest now and I know we’re all be seeing each other again and thank you for send me the silliest but best ways you showed you loved us we never went without food we always had one blankets and beds and always a roof over her head. And now you don’t have to worry about one of your pot roast or a roast or steaks coming out back cuz boy you used to be really get upset if they were perfect for all of us. You’re the best mom I will always love you and thank you for being my mom sincerely your daughter, Colleen

    I love you grandma. I’ll never forgot our fun bus rides and blue line adventures all around LA and to the aquarium and numerous beaches, staying the night at your apartment and watching movies, eating ice cream and drinking my first cup of coffee with you. I’m going to miss you and I’ll always think of you and the great times we have had. I love you very much.

    I remember so many things, Fay. Your beauty and your infectious smile when Manuel or Jeremy or Luke would enter the room. Your joy when watching fire works from the backyard each year. Your creativity in finding, eating, and hiding sugary treats. Your willingness to share a CD of the Lettermen who you knew personally years ago. The fun we had together trying to figure out the remotes for watching tv or DVDs. We both laughed a lot. Your spot at the kitchen table. — but mostly your infectious smile of wonder and delight as the years took there toll. You’ve been in my life almost as long as my wonderful Tracey. I will truly miss you.
