There will always be good memories to remember you by. Thank you so much for giving me Charles and for shaping the man he became. Charlie always admired the love you had for Eileen. You will always be missed and there is some peace knowing that charlie has you by his side in heaven.

My mom and dad always say that I got my brains from you and that is high praise; I can only dream of being as smart as you. You were quick and witty. You had such a vast knowledge of anything and everything I could ever bring up. You challenged me in conversations about economics and science, and you even picked up pharmacy lingo while I went through school!
Living on the opposite coast from you and Grandma was something I think we all struggled with; however, no matter what, YOU always made sure that we could come visit. Since I was born, I think we’ve made it back to the East Coast almost every other year or so. You always made sure to have the donuts my brother and I wanted for breakfast; you even let us skip “real meals” and indulge in our craving to go get Romeo’s pizza (haha we all know my dad can’t go home to Hazlet without having Romeo’s 10 times). It is that time again... This is our year to come visit and it will not be the same without you. I don’t know who’s going to make us London Broil. I don’t know who is going to give me that little smirk at the end of the table when I say something ridiculous. I don’t know what it’ll be like without you there. What I do know is that you gave me my dad, and he’s the best dad I could ever ask for so I thank you for that. A part of you lives in all of us. We will never forget you and we love you, always.
