You were the best Nonna!!

It's six months today that you left us. My heart aches. Christmas was so empty without you.
Life was perfect when you were around. Ma we all miss you so much. I'm still searching for answers why this happened.
Ma you were so full of life with no health issues. It's so difficult to live without you. I often dream about you. Please keep coming to see me my dreams. I love you so much.

You were the perfect Mother, Nonna, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Aunty, Friend and the perfect Stranger. You were so nice to everyone. Now God has gained a perfect Angel. I'm so proud and fortunate to of had a wonderful Mother like you. Ti Voglio Tanto Bene. xoxo Your loving daughter Silvie
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful woman. She will be missed greatly. She always came to see my mom on Jolicoeur St. when she was ill back in 2006 till the night she passed away.
My sincere Condolences for your loss. Your mother was a kind and gentle woman with always a handy smile for all that knew her. She will be greatly missed.
Maria, so many people feel your loss, you always welcomed people into your home as if they were family and yes they did feel like family. The part I think people will miss the most was that you were always worried about people, you would say to me “ti recomando mio fratello” You were taken away from us too soon, but I guess GOD has bigger plans for you, but I know you are an angel in heaven watching over each one of us. I know with all my heart if Maria could say something to each of us, she would say “ti recomando “ watch over each other, and that is what we must do to keep Maria's legacy alive. My Deepest sympathy to the Orlando Family.
I feel this is a nightmare waiting to wake up to see your beautiful face. I never thought that you would leave us so soon. I miss you so much Ma. My life will never be the same. I love you. Please give me the strength to stay strong. I told your Grandsons Brandon and Justin that you're an angel in heaven watching over us. Brandon says he wants to grow wings so he can fly to see Nonna. Justin keeps on saying he wants to go to Nonna's house. We miss you so much!!! You're forever in our hearts. XOXO Your loving Daughter Silvie, Your Son in law Shawn and Grandsons Brandon and Justin.
Rosanna & family,
In the too short time we had known your Mom we came to realize what a special person she was. She was what everyone would want in a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, neighbour and friend. She was the glue that kept the Orlando family together. She made sure her house was always filled with love, joy and food.
She did not just accept my family. She embraced us and welcomed us into her home and her life as one of her own. My sons and I will be eternally grateful.
As a family you must keep her legacy intact. Keep loving each other the way your mother would want you too. She has set a high standard and I know you will all do your best to keep her spirit alive.
Julian, Patrick and Mark
My condolences to you and your family. I'm so sorry to hear this news, stay strong and may God bless you and your family.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your cherished mother. I have so many fond memories of her being a sparky, vivacious woman and a wonderful cook. Please accept my sincere sympathy at this very difficult time.
our deepest condolences go out to the whole family .. she was a beautiful and wonderful lady and will be greatly missed ..
To the Orlando family:
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Rosanna and family,
Although I had not had the pleasure to meet your mom, reading all these heartfelt and kind words about her makes me wish that I had met her. I probably would've loved instantly as so many others have.
Every night when you look up to the sky, the brightest star up there is your mom watching over you.
My deepest sympathies for your loss.
Nous n'arrivons toujours pas à croire que vous nous avez quittés... Que nous ne vous verrons plus étendre votre linge sur la corde, vous promener avec vos petits-enfants autour de la maison, toujours souriante, toujours le bon mot pour faire un compliment, encourager, soutenir... Votre rire, vos bons plats, votre féminité... Vous avez marqué notre cœur à jamais. Votre départ soudain nous attriste profondément et nous offrons à tous les membres de votre famille nos plus sincères sympathies.
Avec tout notre respect et notre affection,
Our most sincere condolences for the loss of your mother.
Joe Sabelli & Linda Vendramin
You were always a sweet and loving person, God speed!
To my wonderful Mother-in-law,
there are not enough words to express myself to you how much I am going to miss you. For me, you were my mom and my friend. I've spent 18 wonderful years with you. You will be in my heart forever. My kids Melissa and Tiana loved their Nonna so much and they also will never forget you. We love you forever.
~love always, your daughter-in-law Amelia.
My nonna was a strong beautiful woman full of smiles and laughter. She was like my second mother and her loss is just unbearable. Her laugh and smile will forever remain in my heart. All of our jokes and laughs we had together and all the times ive slept over, those times will forever be in my heart. I'm going to miss the times I've had with her when she was here. My life will never be the same without her. She meant the world to me and ill miss her forever. She is my hero. shes touched many lives and will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Nonna I'll love and miss you forever and always.
To the Orlando Family,
I was shocked to learn of Maria's passing. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful soul who cared for everyone around her. As s child growing up with Rosanna and Silvie, she was like a mother to me. Always smiling, laughing and teasing...always wanting to put nail polish on my toes! Holy Cross street, as my brother and Rosa said, will never the be the same. My brother Vito used to tease her and call her "chicoria" and she would laugh....Heaven has an angel and she is looking down and watching over her beautiful family from above...
Bless you all...RIP Maria xox
"May you take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over you." Your mom was a very special lady and loved by everyone who knew her. Please know that we share in your grief and extend our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
Our deepest condolences to Emily, Stefano and all the family....our prayers are with you,
Joe, Lisa and Nadia Lopresti (neighbours)
We will love you always Nonna.
My condolences to you Rosanna and your entire family. Xxxx

My deepest condolences to the family. I got to know Maria though my mother as a child shopping at Croteau. She always had style and a great smile. My mom has passed away but I've never forgotten your mom or she me. She has even met my kids and always had a positive attitude on life.I was very sad to hear of her passing because the last time I saw her was at Sears in the shoe department,shopping and finding the latest trend. I finally met her daughter and her other grand kids which she always spoke of them when we met on the street of Ville Emard.My kids even remember her and refired her as the lady from Croteau who was hip. I will remember that last day we chatted at Sears, and will always remember her smiling and laughing. R.I.P. Mari

It brings me great sadness to learn of Signiora Maria's passing.
I have known her since I was a toddler and spent a large part of my childhood growing up in her household and played in the back yard with her children who I consider my family. "Kindred siblings" as I like to think of them.
So many years later, but the memories are still clear in picture.
It brings a smile to my face when I think of her in recent years and can still hear her saying in Italian every time I would run into her
"You got so tall” and “You're always laughing" and especially” When are you getting married!?" lol
I also want to take the time to thank you for always respecting my family and parents and for being a good friend to us throughout all of our lifetimes.
Your generosity and warmth will never go unnoticed, Thank You!
You are in my thoughts and I will always keep your memory cherished.
You will be missed.
My deepest condolences to the whole family and especially, spouse and children,
I am thinking of you.
My Sympathies and condolences to the Family for your loss. My prayers are with you all. Rest in Peace...
Nino and children, I love you all with my whole heart and soul and Maria was my big sister and best friend for so many years. We shared so many happy times and sad together. The world was a different place when I was around her. She was always laughing and joking around and I can't imagine life without her. I can't be there with you all but I am in spirit. I love you all!!
To the Orlando Family,
Our deepest condolences, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Holy Cross street will never be the same without Mrs Orlando. She will be missed dearly.
To the Orlando Family,
Our deepest condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
My deepest sympathies to the family.
My heart aches, I have no words for the Orlando Family, you guys mean so much to me. I can not express how much your Mother meant to so many of us and how Blessed and Grateful I will always be for having her in my life, she took me under her wing, her smile lite up a room and her laugh made everyone want to laugh, and we did till we cried. She will forever remain in my heart.
I can't believe that you're gone. I love you so much Mamma. My heart is empty without you. You're my Mother, my bestfriend, my everything. Your Grandsons Brandon and Justin will forever miss thier NONNA.
" When we see your face
There's not a thing that we would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
'Cause MAMMA, you're amazing
Just the way you are."
We were so lucky to have you as Mother. You're forever in our hearts.
Your Daughter Silvie
