Auntie Carol, as I affectionately called her, was a feisty sweet spirit! I will always remember the way she called me “Sherry Lynn”. It was never one name but both together every time. And in her memorable Boston Italian accent. We had many long talks and she gave me many a life lesson! Always in her calm way. I will miss her terribly and often. I look forward to seeing her again in Heaven! Rest peacefully my Auntie Carol! Love you always! Sherry Lynn

Dear Family, Your mother was a wonderful lady. She loved each one of you and so proud too. I feel so honored to call her my friend and neighbor. We shared so many talks and fun over the years. She was always willing to help me in all our fun times. Always a smile for everyone. She is missed so much by me. She will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace my sweet friend !
