  1. My best memory of her is when I was very young and she would always take me for a walk up to the dime store to share an ice cream sundae with her. She would make me feel very special. She was the most loving and best Zizi anyone could ask for! I will miss her dearly.

  2. The most sweet and loving aunt you could ever hope for. “Running away” to her house to spend the night is one of my childhood memories I will hold close in my heart forever. Zizi…..thank you for all the Bon Gusto sandwiches, Bubble-Up, Soap Operas, and love a young girl could ever want. I’ll be missing you.

  3. Looking back on this as your daughter is now passed boy I miss you so much and now grandma is gone to. I love you both so much
