    Heaven has gained such a sweet angel. I am so lucky to have been blessed with having you as my grandmother. I will miss everything about you, but will keep forever in my heart the beloved memories I have of you. Your impact on my life is greater than you will ever know. Until we meet again…all my love.

    And memories a lane,
    I’d walk right up to Heaven
    And bring you home again.”

  7. Grandma,

    Words cannot describe your beauty. Your kindness, disposition, and outlook on life are incomparable. You brought joy to everyone you met and I am truly blessed to have you as my Grandma. My most cherished memories are the times we all had at Newport Beach. The outings, the card games, and the joy of each others company is an experience I’ll always hold close to my heart.

    I hope I can live my life by your example. I love you, I miss you, and know you’ll be watching over us! XOXOXOXOXO

  8. Dear Uncle Nat and Cousins,Thinking of you all. I just viewed the video tribute to Mary Jane; so very lovely…. ” Her children rise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her, saying:Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.” Proverbs God’s comfort and peace to you all. My love, Paula xo

  9. Dear Karen and Family,
    I just viewed the video sharing your mom’s journey of life. Wow!! I had the privilege of knowing your mom through our last 25 years of friendship. I smiled as I saw your mom and dad grow together and i have to say I saw you Karen,Kally, your sisters all throughout her photos and Jason in your dad. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and I see where you get your kindness, your humor and your zest for life. I’m proud to be your friend and know your family. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Your mom left your dad in good hands. Between your sisters, your brother and the caring Chianti family I know your strong family love will carry you through this difficult time.
    Forever your friend,
