I don't think anyone could ask for a better Mother, maybe I'm bias, but let me tell you why. You were a devoted wife and Mother. You raised 5 children (4 boys and 1 girl, the youngest). You lost your Mother when you were 30 yrs old and had 4 boys ages 7 and under, a time when you really need your Mother the most. You went on and persevered, a daunting task for any young Mom. You treated us the same, but different, if that makes sense. You taught us all at the age of 8 how to cook simple meals (microwaves were not invented yet), do laundry and clean up after yourself because "I won't be around for ever". "Mom, can you give me more milk?" reply: "God helps those who help themselves" You were stoic, stern when you had to be, can swear up a blue streak, deadly with a shoe or slipper heaved through the air, but kind and caring, and drop dead funny with certain one-liners or telling a true story. You instilled in us to work hard, no matter what you were doing. Be early to where ever you were going. Respect your elders, Nobody wants to be bothered on Sunday's, be on your best behavior when you we were visiting somewhere or in a restaurant. She always got compliments on how well behaved her kids were in a restaurant....but I think a lot of crackers and butter may have helped that. In later years we talked at length about personal lives. She never gave up on me, especially when I was on the ropes fighting back with what life had been dealing me. She would watch me get knocked down and then come over and say "ok, now get up, they'll know then that they can't keep you down for long." She always had a "Mom proverb" to recite, a great sense of humor, and was willing to help out anybody. She had compassion and empathy, she rarely cried, as I can only remember a couple of times during my lifetime and that was for her children and grandchildren. My father passed away 20 yrs ago and Mom never went on one date during all those years. She really showed what true love is. She liked watching her tv shows, a glass of wine and a cigarette. Simple means is all she needed. She was very proud of all of us kids, 5 of us, different in every way, but sharing that common bond, and when we were all in the same room, which is rare, she was ecstatically happy. She always told us story's about her childhood, her relative's, and the shenanigans she used to do as a young girl, we listened and laughed out loud even when we heard the sames ones a hundred times. So now we part ways for a while...I always hate good byes, so I'll just say that I'll see you later Mom, I miss you already, please watch over us all, kiss Dad for me, have a glass of Chardonnay. Thank you for being the best Mom anybody can ask for. Your work here is complete, but never taken for granted or forgotten. I love you, ~Dino
