Dear Geri and Michael, I am so sad to hear about your mom's passing. I loved her very dearly and have so many fond memories of her that I will always cherish. The times we have all spent with her were wonderful, she was such a beautiful person, and the kindest woman I have ever known. She lived and loved life to the fullest, and although it is selfish of me to still want her here; I know that my life, as well as anyone else's life she touched was far better for knowing her. I will always admire her optimistic approach to life, and her upbeat personality. Even when she wasn't feeling her best she always looked at the bright side of things and never wanted anyone to worry about her. She always had a way of making you feel right at home. I enjoyed all the laughs and the goodtimes, the plays in the park and our trips to the catskills, and the special time we would make to get together over the holidays. It feels like yesterday when we worked together at Nutley High. The years went by so quickly. Although, we both have a fondness for angels, I know that God has the best angel ever with him and I know she is in a better place with her husband, mom and brother. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends left behind without her, because losing her is a great loss to me, but I know in my heart she is in a better place. She will always be in my heart.

With Deepest sympathy,

Michael & Gerri, It is such a sad day. I know that she will be missed. I know that even though I live so far away, and have not been to see her, I will miss her greatly. When my mom called to tell me about Fran's passing, one of the first thought that came to mind were from years ago, with her dogs at Aunt Roseann's house.

Although I cannot be with you physically, my heart and thought are with you.

Love,

Ellen Ann

Michael and Gerri,
My deepest sympathy to both of you. I have only fond memories of your mom. She was always upbeat and positive and so interested in everything! She had much to be proud of in her life. I am so glad I had the opportunity to have lunch with her a few months ago. We had a wonderful time then went back to her house for homemade dessert. The pizzelles were delish and she sent me home with a tin of them!
I know she is at peace now and in heaven with her beloved Gene.
With deepest sympathy,
Michele Cerrato Mannino
