Knowing your mom for most of my life as her sister-in-law, I know that her boys were everything to her. And knowing her boys, she meant everything to them. May she rest in peace, and she will be remembered forever in our hearts.

I remember all the fun we had growing up together,watching American Bandstand and you teaching me how to do the jitterbug. You were always protective of your little brother. When I fell face first running down Langdon Ave. I got all scraped up and you and your friend carried me home. Now God is carrying you home. Love always, your brother Billy and sister-in-law Maureen.

Sean and Brett, I am so sorry for your loss. You should be proud of yourselves for taking care of your Mom the way you did. She was a great Mom and raised two amazing sons. You guys fight hard and love hard. I am privileged to have been a part of your family. Love you both.
