  1. My Dearest Mom,
    You will always be with me. Although the days are much harder to get through without you. I can still hear your voice, and that comforts me. You shared so many precious and beautiful moments with all of us. You were with us as we took our first breath in this world. We were all with you as you took your last. You will never leave our hearts. You will always be our little mommy.

    Love you, love you, love you.

    Your one and only…

    Ralph

  2. Your Mother was always so kind to me. I felt as if I were part of the family from the minute I walked in the door the very first time.
    You are all in my prayers.
    With love and sympathy,
    Jennifer

  3. Dearest Nancy,

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your precious mother. I’ll always remember the stories of the wonderful meals she would make. Please know I’m there for you if you need anything.

  4. Dearest “Grandma” Nancy,

    You were always one of the kindest and most interesting people to talk to. Not a birthday went by that I didn’t receive a card and well wishes, despite us not having seen each other for several years. I’m thankful for the time and the memories we’ve had together. I was fortunate enough to see you much more recently than my parents did. Though you are gone, you will never be forgotten.

    Love,

    -Josh

  5. Dearest Nancy,

    You were like a second Mother to us, welcoming us into your home. Lance always told me how much he loved to visit with you and how he enjoyed dinner with you and your family. When we married, you were there for us, and you were there when Josh was born. Some of our fondest memories were of visiting with you & Fonsi on snowy winter days,enjoying your hospitality and the world’s best coffee. Josh would smile so much when you held him! We always felt your love and hope that you know how much we love you.

  6. A warm smile and a place at the table were always extended by your mother. Nancy, may you and yours be comforted by wonderful memories of your mother during this difficult time of her passing. Love and blessings to you.

  7. Dear Nancy and family:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time. God bless your mother as she passes from this world to Heaven. We were always welcomed into her home with open arms and her anisette cookies were the best! No matter what we were doing or where we were going she accepted us…She will be truly missed. Both Vinnie and I have the fondest memories of her. Special prayers to your family and especially your father….love to all.

  8. Dear Nancy,
    How saddened I was to hear that your dear mother has passed. I will pray for you and your family at such a sad and difficult time.
    I pray that God will help to comfort you and your family, and help heal your hearts, as you move through these very difficult days. My heart goes out to you and your family. I extend my Love.

  9. Dear Nancy and Family,
    Nancy I will miss your mother dearly. Although I have not seen her since 1993 (your wedding) I have the fondest memories of her. She was always very kind and loving to me. She may have been little but we all knew not to mess with her or get her mad. She put up with our childhood antics and even though we may have disappointed her she was always there to give you a hug and tell you it was “OK.” I feel for you Nancy, your dad and your siblings. I hope you can find some comfort in this very difficult time. If I could just share a bit of an Irish song to all of you. “Your mother’s love is a blessing no matter where your roam.”
    My sincere sympathies to all of you.
    Love,
    Kim

  12. My Little Mommy,

    I Love You so much. I miss you so much. All the beautiful times we had together, just you and I and also with our whole family. Fifty-nine years with you is not enough. I wanted more. I will never forget the little poem you gave me a few years ago that says…As you travel around this great wide world, You’ll meet friends false and true, But never a friend like your Mother you’ll find, Though you travel the whole world through. Truer words were never spoken Ma. When my time comes, I won’t be afraid to die, because I know you will be there waiting for me. I’m your #1. I’ll see ya later Ma. Annette

  13. Hi Mom:

    I want to thank you for always being there for me. For always being a good listener. I know I am a good mom and grandmother because I learned from the best.
    I will miss you always,. I will love you forever.

  14. I will miss my very special mother-in-law. What a cute and loving little lady. She had a way with words….”Wha you tink”!!

  15. We love you so much…Aunt Nancy always had a big heart. Her little giggle and beautiful smile will never be forgotten. I learned through her that family is very important in our lives.Her last words to me were “Just remember honey we are family and we stick together and help each other no matter what. And honey we will always love each other.” Those cute little words I will miss “honey I love you.” I love you too. You will always be in our hearts. May you rest in God’s loving arms now.

  16. I am so happy that we had so many good memories together. Celebrating the joyous occasions to the sad. You are already missed Nancy. You will always be in my heart. We will meet again…Love you Anna

  17. Dear Mommy,
    You are the person I go to when I am feeling so sad. The person I look to for advice when I am feeling out of sorts. Now I am thinking of all the things you said to help me through tough times. When I was little, and even grown, you wiped my tears, gave me lots of hugs. Mommy you took care of me when I was sick and comforted me until I was well. Oh the silly things you did to make me laugh sometimes. And always…always how loved we all felt from your actions and your words. I have learned so much from you in all the years we’ve had…though selfishly I wanted more and so I cry for that now. I know you don’t want us to be so sad and would console us if you could, so I will carry your love for us in my heart and my memories I will share. You said this to all your children and grandchildren too and so I will not say good bye to you now…just see you later alligator…’after a while crocodile.’
    Silent Night Ma…Silent Night,
    I Love You So Much, Nancy

  18. Dear Little Aunt Nancy,
    I am so sorry that you have passed. The suffering is now over and you are in Heaven with the others whom we deeply miss. I have thought of you the past few years and we never did say good bye after the wedding so I will say my good byes now and will keep you in my Heart forever. I will always miss the good times we had at Holiday’s,Vacation’s and BIrthday Parties we had through out the years and you being part of the fun.

    We Will Miss You For Eternity,
    Charlie,Cheryl and Clarissa Adamo

  22. I am so happy my family and I have had the pleasure of knowing — you are already missed. May you rest in eternal peace! –Shelley Hubert (Lucy’s Sister-in-law / Jimmy Conner’s Sister)

  23. How can we say good-bye to the person my dad called his little “pepperpot” sister? You were your brother Frankie’s pal and another sister to his wife, my mom, Dini, when she first came to this country. You loved all your family, including nieces and nephews like they were your own. This is not good-bye, in my Dad’s words “so long for now.”

    Love,your niece Lucy,your loving brother Frank,Dini and Daniel

  24. Dear Aunt Nancy,
    Our love for you will never end. May you have eternal peace. Until we meet again. Love, Dorothy and Salvatore Prisco
