    My heart is so sad, today I lost my Nana and godmother . I know it happens with age but it still hurts. It was her time I know. I was just thinking about how I was lucky to live next to her for most of my childhood where we so close and inseparable. Seeing your grandparents everyday and having them in your life doesn’t happen for most but like I said I was lucky to grow up with her so close. She moved later to Florida to take care of my papa who was very ill . I would visited her often and enjoyed our times together. She would drag me to 24 hour bingo which never got old to her it wasn’t my favorite but I did it for her. The trips to Florida were the best because I would get best homecooked Italian meals from her and we would just talk for hours catching up each other with our lives. She truely was my heart. ❤️ When she came down with Dementia and Alzheimer’s it was devastating seeing her lose the memories that you hold so dear to you. To see her eyes so empty and sad. I’m sorry you had to go through that. I miss you and love you Nana. I’ll meet you in my dreams were we can play bingo and enjoy each other again. Ox

    To my “Snoopy” Nonnie, I’ve shared the memories of visits to Wareham, I tell my girls the stories of Quahogging in the bay finding the right ones with my toes…lots of memories and great meals with family. I still eat my salad after my meal… May you find peace and rest easy. Hold on tight to Grampa, Uncle Joe, and my dear Dad….Peace
