The Mama was mentioned quite often on this blog. She was a joyful presence in real life, filled with optimism and a sense of funny that tickled us all. Pictures of family have not been a part of my blog out of respect for their privacy but I am making this one exception.
The Mama, known also as GiGi and/or Gram, loved “her boys” and family more than anything in the world… except maybe her husband, Charley. The Mama left her three boys and the boy’s wives, her nieces, nephews, her cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and the remaining family that she was devoted to on February 14th, 2018 to be with her husband, Charley, on Valentine’s Day. She left peacefully in her sleep. Our hearts are broken but we are comforted by the thought that she and Charley are together… we know with all our hearts that they are both watching over us lovingly and protecting us.
“Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.” ~ Sophocles
