In my mind and in my memory one word defines Mary. Gentle. Her fingers carefully untwined the rubber band from my ponytail. The hairbrush in her hand never pulled. Her humorous asides, delivered in her voice, I hear in my head as I write this, portrayed her strength of character. I had wanted to write to her in the last days of her illness but could not think of what to say to someone so dear so aware of death calling her home. I guess I love you would have been a good start. In reflecting joy for life was her special talent. The gift she gave freely to everyone she encountered.

Our family is spread from Massachusetts to Florida, a long strand of distant and closely arranged pearls. One of our pearls has slipped off, her luster remains to warm our memories. I am sorry for our family’s lost and grief. I hope each is consoled by one or many very personal moments touched by Mary’s indelible essence.

Even though she lived in florida i always found her at some of the more important celebrations that my family and i had.
She left us with some good memories some funny some sad but i will always remember her.

To Viki My Friend

I wish for you...
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Gentile hugs when spirits sag,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Faith so that you can believe,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
And love to complete your life.

Dear Mom,

I went to the mailbox the other day and I recieved a birthday card from Mikey, And as I was going through the mail I thought how odd it was that I hadn't recieved a card from you yet. You're always the first one.

Later on that evening, I looked up to witness a magnificant sunset and I realized that was my present!

We all miss you here, but we know you are dancing, even though you don't have your shoes. But remember you can dance much better with your shoes off.

I found this little poem and it made me think of you!

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.

A bird gives the message back to the world, and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.

People disappear, but they never really go away.

The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles.

Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day-time, when they're supposed to be sleeping. They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide.

They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.

And when they sing wind-songs, they whisper to us, don't miss me too much.

The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.

I love you, and think of you oft

Had the pleasure and the honor of meeting Viki's mother Marie a couple of years ago.

We had dinner and some good laughs.

I'm sure shes resting comfortably right now and may God bless her and her family.

She taught me one of the mysteries of life – What to do with an artichoke. May she find the peace in the next life that eluded her in this

I can't imagine what it's like to lose a mother, but I hope with the passing of time, that the pain of her loss will grow easier to bear and that the pain is replaced by the joy of loving memories.

We have come together to mourn the loss of Mary
A wife,
A daughter
A sister
A friend

Though she is no longer with us she leaves within all of us.
Her gift,
of generosity
of caring
of kindness
we will miss her dearly,
but remember her always with love.

My heart goes out to Vik, Brian and Lara. I know you can feel comfort now her pain has ended. But hold on to the love that never ends. Hold on to family and friends and your pain rises, lingers and also ends. Marge, Jennifer and I will hold you in our prayers.

I will always treasure my memories of Marie and extend my deepest condolences to her entire family.

I believe that the loss of a parent is top of the list in pain and heartbreak. I know. I also find that they are always in my thoughts, and in memory, they still teach me. They are alive in my Heart. Viki,Lara,Brian, my heart breaks for you,because it is still open to pain. Feel your pain, but don't close your hearts because of it. LOL

I met Marie when my daughter Jasmine & Lara, Marie's grandaughter were 2 years old. Jasmine, Lara & Brian were always together; as Viki and I were never far apart from each other as our children have grown. Jasmine was a luckly little girl, because she got to have another grandmother. Marie had such a big heart, no one was ever denied her love. As I greive for Viki, Fran, Lara, Brian, & Mike ~ thier loss of a mother, grandmother, & wife ~ I also grieve for my daughter Jasmine and myself for having lost a kind beautiful person in all of our lives.

Death is the beginning of eternity.
Marie will be with her family and friends again. I know I am looking forward to seeing such A warm and compassionate being again.
My deepest sympathy to two wonderful daughters, Viki and Fran. Your efforts will be rewarded.

I had the pleasure to meet Marie Barboni only once at a 1999 large family gathering in Connecticut. Through her struggle, Marie rose to the occasion, joining her daughter Vicki Bissinger with her two beautiful grandchildren Brian and Laura to share in the family festivities with a low-key quiet grace and aplomb. Marie's struggle is over and she is now sharing her grace with God. May she rest in peace.

I have so many memories of growing up in Bergenfield,NJ with Vickie,Marie and Mike. I know Marie will find comfort in Heaven that was elusive to her here on Earth. She had a heart of gold and an iron will and love for her family.God Bless all of you.

Yesterday is just a memory,
Today is a Gift
Tomorrow is promised to no one

The loss of a loved one can make you realize just how precious our time here is.

In our day to day blur of life, we overlook the many gifts each new day has to offer.

My mother was able to overlook another persons looks, faults and weaknesses and love them unconditionally, for who they were on the inside, and not for what they looked like on the outside. And by doing this she met and accepted people from all walks of life. She was always there in their time of need with a cup of tea, a cigarette a warm smile and an open and sincere heart, ready to take on their problems although she had many of her own.

Her eyes were the windows to her soul. With just a look one knew immeditaly what she was thinking. She could communicate in an instant with her eyes, what would take hours to say with words.

No matter how much she suffered she bravely faced her fears and went on without complaining right to the end.

When she passed away she took a piece of all of us and hopefully for those of us that were listening she replaced our void with a little of herself may she live on in all of us.

May we see her beauty in each and every new day and remember this special person I call my mother. She will be forever in our hearts and memories.

I love you mom.
