Our mom and grandmother was our life. She was totally devoted to her family, her faith, with special devotions to Mother Mary, St. Anthony, St. Joseph, St. Padre Pio and St. Therese the Little Flower. An advocate for all, she was the best friend and confidante of many whose lives she touched in a special way. To know her was to love her. Her prayers and love for others reached so many. She was the epitome of unconditional, precious and caring love. JMJ
