  1. The first second I met you I loved you , you told me some funny stories and we laughed until we cried. That’s how I’ll always remember you smiling , loving your family and sharing memories especially about your husband RIH


  2. Momma C. To know her was to love her. From the very first day I met her I knew that I would never ever meet anyone like her again in my lifetime. Momma C. was the most caring and loving soul you could ever know. There wasn’t anyone that she didn’t love, or anyone’s life that she didn’t touch with her presence! She was a “Godsend” to me! From the very first day I met her she loved me like I was her own. We used to tell each other that God had brought us together, and the Lord knew I needed her more than she needed me, but that didn’t matter to Momma C. because her heart was bigger than the whole world. I will forever miss her, from the serious talks we would have, and the many laughs that we would share, to her singing songs to me in Italian, and of course dancing with her in her living room. The hole in my heart will never heal from losing her, but it will be all the memories that we shared that will temporarily fill it. Rest-in-Peace Momma C. You will be “forever” loved.❤⚘
