    Goodbye Mom, I hope you are free from pain and relaxing peacefully. Growing up, I remember watching you do your makeup and hair and thinking you were the most beautiful woman in the world! You shined with such a bright light.
    I hope you have returned to that light. Please look over all of us.
    We love you,

    I grew up side by side with you, Rosie. It was always you and I celebrating our Birthdays together every year . We went to a lot of concerts together Elo , Bob Seager, Eddie Money. You name it we saw it. The last words you said to me is that you didn’t think you were going to make it and then you said that we really had some great times together. I said did we ever . Rest in peace Rosie love you always.

    Mom I love and miss you already. You were right in telling how people are. I think about you everyday and always will.
    Don’t worry about Grandma and Eddie I will do my best to take care of them if they need anything. So I guess what I am saying is I will see you on the other side when ever that may be.

    Love Billy.
