Not sure what to say?

Thank you for showing me so much love and kindness when I was a child. You didn't have to. And thank you for continuing that love throughout my entire life. I never felt like an outsider. You welcomed my husband into your family in the same way; we are very grateful. We will miss you every day.

What a wonderful life we had because of you and dad and the people we became because of u and dad
You and dad were soul mates together again forever you will always be apart of my heart and the only thing that helps me get through this is knowing you are with my dad

Thank you for never making me feel like I wasn't part of the family and just as loved as your blood relatives. You and grandpa both went out if your way everyday to make me and my mom feel loved and welcome. I'm so glad I got to spend the last months with you at the house and i'm glad you are reunited together now.

Giulio and I spent our honeymoon with Aunt Charlene and Uncle Wayne in their home 38 years ago. They bought Giulio his first pair of Levi jeans! We have fond memories, lots of stories and laughter shared! Even though we were on the other side of the country in Pennsylvania, they always kept in touch with us by phone, sending bandaged up stuffed animals for surgeries, cards for birthdays and anniversaries for us and our children, Dawn and Michael. They never forgot! Michael and his wife,...

Mamma Dixie

I am sure that you are with Ira again and at peace. Rest easy and know that your loved and missed here each and every day Sweet Mamma Dixie.

I will never forget all the fun and laughter when Mark and I would visit California. You and Uncle Wayne always opened your house to us. You will be missed and I am glad you are with you one true love, Wayne. Lee and Joey loved your home and your entire family. You are all in my prayers. Mary Ann and Mark

Charlene has always been a central part of our family. She was never just viewed as Wayne's wife, but as our sister, and to my mother and Step father she was a daughter. She was loved by all her nephews and nieces in our family. She has always been there....it will seem so strange just as it does with Wayne, that she and Wayne are no longer there. They were such a great couple together. To me they were the type of married couple that everyone should be or should be fortunate to be. A...

Cousin charlene was so sweet. I remember her being funny and kind.
Love cousin Karen

To my wonderful Grams,
Words cannot describe what you mean to me and how devastated I am that you are no longer with us. You and Gramps were truly a blessing in our lives. You took us on adventures and spent so much time with us. These are memories I will remember forever. I love you Grams. I love you so much. One day when I get married or have children you will be there in spirit. My children will know how amazing you and Gramps both were. I am sad you are no longer here but I am happy...
