Mom lost her battle with COPD June 14th 2003. It was a tough battle which she fought with courage, never giving up until it became impossible for her to catch her next breath. Mom loved life and instilled that love in all of her five children- Diane, Linda, John, Maureen and Mike. Family was, and is, everything to us. She was "Mom" to everyone who knew her... she had that way about her. She loved everyo

Dad was always there for her, in spite of his

You are not forgotten Dad; Nor will you ever be. As long as love and life exist, We will remember thee. Your grandbabies miss you and speak of the times we were together. I miss you and think of you daily. You were taken too soon by your nasty habit-too bad you didn't believe it could happen to you. A&E have learned from you how bad cigarettes are and will not kill themselves the same way. I wish with a
