My condolences. Nothing can replace the love of a mother but her love lives on in your hearts. Along with her wisdom and humor, it will guide you in all your affairs. 💕
Love you Auntie Toni. Rest peacefully. You will be missed. Give grandpa a big kiss for me.❤️ Leslie
My grandmother was an amazing person and so loving and kind. My world will not be the same without her. She was a great friend to me my entire life and very invested and supportive in everything I did. I will look back fondly on memories with her watching cartoons and eating spaghetti and meatballs at her home in Peabody. She was very naturally funny and always fun to talk to. One time she and I went food shopping and she showed me a tray of chocolate muffins and said "wow these cupcakes sure are burnt." Just always very funny. I remember riding my bike to her house unannounced and she would be so happy to see me. I wish I could still ride my bike to her house and see her. Her favorite song to sing to us was "You Are My Sunshine" and every time I hear it I think of her. I moved to LA after college and she and I would write each other letters very often. I will miss receiving them so excitedly. She will be greatly missed by myself and my family forever.
