I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one. I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done. I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days. I’d like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun; Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

    I visited her home in Ocean City numerous...  more

    Aunt Rema was always full of love. Her “ ah, hon” always made me feel seen and a big hug from her made everything ok. I loved seeing her boss my dad around “now, Rom,” and usually it meant she was coming to our defense. I have wonderful memories...  more

    So many things to say, but the most fundamental thing was when Aunt Re spoke your name, you knew it was spoken with genuine love, care and concern for you as a person. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love....  more

  • A few things I learned along the way from my Mother In Law

    *Take the stairs. Keep moving. Age is only a number and you don’t have to feel or act your age.
    *Grandkids can eat whatever they want at MomMom’s. Her house. Her rules. (I adopted this rule...  more

    Aunt Rema’s energy was simply vivacious! She not only knew how to enjoy life she did so with the kindest and loving heart. The girls are together again and I am sure are back to their usual chats, laughs and bantering. 💕✨

    The best memory of family in this picture. Aunt Rema always a glowing smile. One of the pictures of aunt was on the upstairs deck to the little apartment at aunt Rita's house in wildwood. Looks like aunt Rema was cooking a meal for Drew!

    Mom was always about family gatherings! She loved to be surrounded by friends and family. The boys her the party, the more fun she had!

    Just wanted to add another fun memory of Mommom, whenever it was her birthday or if I just wanted to chat, we would always email each other as we both didn’t like talking on the phone. I have a recipe for her famous twice baked potatoes saved from her...  more
