Julie, Happy Anniversary 59 years. Today I am pretending that you are here with me, I have never stopped loving you after 59 years. Maybe for our 60th we can be together. Today I am going to close yours life book, I had made for you, so the family can keep the memories of you we all miss you this book will help all to be near you. Love you forever Ray.
Mom, You were a very strong willed lady, you were there for me so many times. I know that I am a better person because of you. I really miss you not being here with us. When you became blind I watch how you adjusted to it and never complained. You were and are a inspiration to me. I will keep my promise to you to watch over dad. I know that was one of your biggest worries. I will always love you. Your Son Mike.
You will always have a place in my heart and everything you have taught me will never be forgotten. I always ask myself, " What would grandma say if I asked her?" about anything I question or seek advice for. I would not have grown this much in life if it was not for you supporting me and guiding me through times. You were like a mom to me instead of a grandmother and I will always cherish our memories and jokes. I love you Grandma Julie
your Mandy Bird
My Beloved Mom,
There are no words to convey on how much you are missed. You were loved so much.. Nothing that anyone could have said or done could have prepared me for your passing, it has forever changed my life. Somedays it is hard to breath it hurts so bad. I miss you so.. I think of you daily and wait for the nights that you come to me in a dream. I miss your voice, the daily calls to you, I always felt better after speaking to you. I miss your laugh and your smile. I loved it when Larry would tease you about your recipe, you were always such a good sport. You understood me emotionally more than anyone could, you helped me make sense of what I was thinking and feeling, I am so forever grateful for that. You always allowed me to be myself. I would thank you and I can hear you say "That why I am your mom" I felt so safe and protected by you, like Dads always said and it is so true you would have fought a bear for your family.. I think of our conversations that we had before your left, I realize how blessed I am to have had that time with you. Our very last conversation I will always carry safely tucked in my heart and I will cherish it until the day that you are there to meet me with that sweet smile.. You wanted me to hold onto my faith after you left and that is what I am doing it is not always easy. It 's funny because in those times of prayer it is where I feel the safest to let my tears flow freely. You knew my beautiful mother just what I would need, you always did. I promise you as your daughter that I will honor and protect your memory. I will always be so proud of the woman you were, so beautiful, funny, smart, strong, protective, and so selfless. You had class Mom. The connection that you and I shared was something I say Thank you to daily in prayer. The days that are most difficult, I can feel you wanting me to be happy living my life and to be strong. I will miss you forever... I hold onto to knowing for certain that the God that I love and believe in will not keep me from seeing you again. So, I will see you again and I will kiss that sweet face that I adored. I love you Patsy xxoo
Grandma Julie, I`ve always had good memories of you from watching Tom and Jerry with you or just sitting and talking with you from time to time. You always put a smile on my face every time I would leave so thank you. For everything that you did for me. Just remember that I always love you and I`ll never forget anything that you did with me. I`ll miss you but just rest easy because everything is all right. Again, thank you and love you too.
Mom, you called me your fifth daughter and you always showed me your unconditional love and support from the moment I became part of the family. Whenever our family needed help, you were the first to drop anything and everything you were either doing or had planned just so you could be there for us. You always knew when something wasn't right and always knew exactly what to say or do. You taught me how to cook and always knew how to make me laugh. Your life was full of joy and happiness and your family meant everything to you. You were especially proud of all of your children but were even prouder of each and every one of your grandchildren and great grandchildren. We all love you very much and are very proud to call you our mom. All of your life lessons and talents and your unconditional love is your legacy and it will forever be carried on by my family. You are a very strong and inspirational women and I hope you know just how much you touched my life. When I think of your name, these phrases come to mind:
J - Joyful
L - Love
I - Inspirational
E - Energy
Thank you for being such a wonderful mom to all of us and for always being there to hold our hands, hug us and mentor us to be strong and dedicated.
I know you are with my Grandma and Grandpa Marino and that they are helping and supporting you. May you rest in peace. I miss you lots.
Your fifth daughter :o(
You made me feel like part of the family the second I walked in your door for the very first time. At that time, I was just another friend of RJ's so I felt particularly special. I was lucky enough to marry into the family and truly become one of your grandsons. Watching how you treated people has made me a better person which I will be forever grateful for. I love you and will always miss you.
Grandma, you were not only my grandmother but a second mother to me. I knew I could go to you for anything and I thank you for that. We have so many memories together that I will treasure forever. You were an amazing grandma and I will always tell my kids about their Gma. I love you forever and always.
grandma, i know you are at peace now,and i will always love you, you were the best grandma any kid could of asked for,you taught us so much and we always respected everything you told us, we miss you so much, you will never be forgotten. I love you
Grandma, I hope you're having fun in Eternity! You forever changed my life. Thank you for Loving me and always knowing what to say to brighten my day. I Miss you and cannot wait till the day I see you again. I LOVE YOU!!! Jacob
Every time that I smile
Every time that I sigh,
I think of your face and a tear escapes my eye,
You were my world,
My inspiration and my heart,
When you left me
I thought i would fall apart,
You were my best friend,
My one true "confidante'
And thats not all you were,
You were my also my mom,
I didn't want to live without you,
But you would have wanted me to,
And if there is anyone I want to make happy,
That anyone is you,
I would give anything to have you back,
I know that it is not meant to be,
ForYou are watching me from up there,
And I know you are watching me,
I will make you proud mom
You are going to see me and smile,
That is a daughters promise..
Love you Forever,
I constantly think of all the sacrifices you made for us as I try to raise my children. I don't know how you did all that you did. You were an amazing and strong woman. You made me understand unconditional love through your example. I will miss you always.
Julie,You were more of a mother to me than a mother-in-law. I will truly miss shooting the bull with you. Love you Roger
Mom, I will love you always and forever. See you on our next journey señorita. Love you always. Karen
No longer by my side but forever in my heart
I never got to thank you for the warm reception you and Ray gave me. You made me feel very comfortable around you which allowed me the chance to get to know you in a way that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. I'm so sorry for the pain you went through; I wish things could have been different. Even though you were in so much pain at the time, I have wonderful memories of the times we spent together. Sometimes you were funny and sweet and other times your lionness side came out. Your mind always drifting to your children and their welfare. I know you are watching over your loved ones now. You are an awesome lady..they don't make em like you any more. May God bless you and keep you...I love you Julie..
I really miss calling and hearing your voice - you always sounded so positive and uplifting every time I called... At first I would wonder how many times you might have been in pain and agony and still sat and listened to all of my complaints of my day or week without saying a word unless I asked or probed on how your were feeling. I still see your face smiling the last time I kissed you goodbye. I knew that night soon you would be gone. You fought so hard to stay with us but it was one last battle you could not fight. It all happened so fast... Now a photo I look at and see your smile and I have all great memories I will keep with me. Grateful for the memories of when I came to you for help or understanding, you would have me read the bible or go to church for comfort. I want to share a verse that comforts me now, Isaiah 66:12 - 13. For this is what The Lord says " I will extend peace to her like a river, to the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dangled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you and you will be comforted over Jerusalem."
Knowing you're in a much better place, Mom, lets me celebrate your life and all you gave and shared. A reading from Psalm 30:5 weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning!
I love you forever in my heart Mom and will think of you always at high noon.
Thinking of you over this past Mothers day, I wanted to light a candle in your honor. You were wonderfull and beautiful in so many ways. I remember when I was a child and I called you mom. You opened your arms to me that day. I felt the love from you like I was yours. Now you are with god and my mother has come to. Say hello to each other for me. you are in my heart forever.
honey imiss you and I am being good and I WANT TO BE WITH IF ONLY I COULD BUT SOON WE WILL BE TOGETHER
Julie, I was truly excited to meet you for the very first time. I wanted to meet the woman who did such an awesome job of raising Lori. Your life values have carried through to your daughters. Now that you can see again you know the truth, that I look nothing like Steven Seagal. You will be missed by all. - Mike McDonald
Grandma, You have been a big part of my heart. You were a good great grandma. Even though I did not see you a lot, I knew you loved me a lot. I will miss you forever. - Dylan Blessie
Mom, I do not think I ever took the time to say thank you for all that you gave up and the many sacrifices you made for all 7 of your kids. So "thank you" from the bottom of my heart. I know my strength came from you and as you are looking down at me, I will try every day to make you proud. What helps me through this 1st mothers day without you is knowing you have no more pain. I will love you always - Lori Blessie
Grandma, I have a special locket that rests above my heart, it holds your beautiful pictures while we must be apart.
It's my hope that you're still with me no matter come what may, so I know that I can talk to you every single day.
When I walk in to a storm you're watching over there, guiding me to sunny skies with tender loving care.
I'll never have to be alone you're always next to me, you show me love indifferent ways the eyes could never see.
Your spirit fills my soul with love beyond any explanation, with pride I'll wear it everyday in total admiration.
Of the woman who changed my life and patiently awaits, arms wide open to welcome me when I reach heavens gates.
It's never really goodbye if in your heart you do believe, a grandmas love is endless, and never ever leaves. -Sarah Blessie
Some of my greatest memories from childhood include spending time together, and going over to your house to visit with you and Grandpa. Watching Cubs games on the TV and experiencing your amazing home cooking which include some of my favorite dishes even to this day like seasoned cucumbers and beef stroganoff. I miss you Grandma and you will always and forever remain in my heart and mind.
I Love you,
Grandma, You are not forgotten, many miss you; only God knows why we had to say goodbye-- Rest in Peace Terrance
My heart aches to hear the sweetness of your voice. Every day when I open my eyes hoping that it was just a dream and then I realize that it is true and I have to learn to accept it. I want to thank you for always allowing me to be myself and for always showing me unconditional love. For always protecting and understanding me I am forever grateful. I will forever honor and cherish your memory Mom. The principles that you stood for will always be admired and respected. You were so selfless, never asking for anything but always willing to give. I am so proud and so very blessed that you were my mom. Although, I may struggle to understand why you had to leave, I know that it is in God's timing. I know that I will see you again and when that day comes I will be running to you. You are forever my beautiful beloved mother and friend, I love you Mom.
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
I think of you every day, how much I knew about you and what I am just now discovering about your life. I want you to know how much I admired your strength and courage. I believe that you were one of my greatest teachers in life and for that I will always be grateful. I know that the next life we have together will be even better. I hope that I will be able to live the rest of my life in a way that will always make you proud of me.
I love you Mom - Barb
I will always remember the first day I met you and your family when I starting dating Barb; boy, was I nervous but you immediately made me feel very comfortable. You were always there for me no matter what -- some of my fondest memories are of you helping me sew the drapes when we nervously waited for Jason to be born in St. Cloud, how much you helped me to stay calm, and the many talks we had about life and family. I know that you always made me feel like a part of the family and I will forever be grateful to you. I will miss you and know that you will always be in my heart.
I want to thank God for giving me 58 years with you. You taught me to have courage and strength. You gave me seven wonderful children and they gave us fourteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. I know family was the most important thing in your life and mine. God really blessed us and I will always love you. Ray
To the Zaporowski Family, I am very sorry for your loss of your mother. She was an amazing and one of the most beautiful women I knew. I miss her dearly, hoping where she is now she is at peace from all the pain and suffering she suffered for the past few years. She is at peace and I will always have her deep in my heart forever. I won't ever forget her beautiful smile and her joyous laugh. She is loved by many and with god now at peace. She is dearly missed and will remain in my heart forever.
Patty, my thoughts & prayers are with you & your family during this time. She sounded like an awesome lady.
My heart goes out to this great family for the loss of their loved one.
God your family.
Rest in peace my Grandmother Julie I pray your with your beautiful mother Grandma Vecera
You will forever be in my heart my beautiful Grandmother I pray that you are with your beautiful mother Grandma Vercera
