    She was a great aunt to Sal, Jr. and the rest of the family. She was always in a great mood and loved the holidays with family & friends. It is a sad time and also a good time, knowing she is not suffering anymore. Thank you Jay and Pattie for moving Joanne and Anne closer to the family to be taken care of during their sickness. May God put his healing hands on all. Even though we can't be with the rest of the family during this time - we send our prayers to all of you. May God Bless.

    We called her Goggie. For over 40 years, she was a beloved member of our family. As my family’s neighbor on Anacortes, during her time at Gulftex with Gerri and Zoe, on her visits to New York, Atlantic City and to Lake Tahoe, for her unconditional love of Ernie and later Scott, and through her seemingly endless posts on Facebook of recipes that I could make (but never seemed to succeed in doing), she remained a part of my life. Distance never changed that. I will always cherish those memories. She made a difference in my life, for which I’ll forever be thankful. ILY, ILY..
