Sensitive and caring
Religious, not dogmatic
The most open-minded Catholic I knew.
Vibrant, full of life
The talk of the party.
Laughing, telling stories, “sharing”
Irish dancing or Macarena-ing.
A “Sound Bully”
Encouraging…forcing everyone to go in.
Cheekie! Cheekie! Cheekie!
A real “Doer”
Fire Island with the Courtneys – body surfing in the ocean
Camping with the Davises – Split Rock Falls
Giving us countless experience.
Neighborhood baseball game organizer and catechism teacher
“Old school” coach/teacher who didn’t put up with any crap.
Firm, but fair
Encouraging those who needed it, like me.
Writing lists and organizing
Dorita’s in the zone!
A natural-born counselor,
Ready to listen when I needed advice…when we all needed it.
Someone I…we could tell anything to
Who helped solve our problems.
Who made a difference
In my life,
In all our lives.
Looking down from heaven now
My guardian angel,
Still listening, helping, caring.
I love you, Mom.
