Hello all...posting with a heavy heart.
My mom passed this morning. She was a wonderful person (cliche', I know...but true)
A great Christian...never cussed her whole life...church every Sunday...
A great mom to me and my 3 sisters.
She passed on her favorite day of the year...yes, Christmas Eve. We always attended Christmas Eve Mass...then had a HUGE party. Mom was old school Italian, so the food spread was always out-of-this-world.
Mom was born during the Great Depression, and grew up during WWII...she saw a lot of pain...and also a lot of Joy in her 80 years.

See you in Heaven mom.
We're leaving the sunshine state tomorrow morning for Baltimore (my home town)...where we, along with my dad and sisters and friends/family will celebrate her wonderful life.
Thank God I was able to see her a few weeks ago in her final days.
Y'all give your mom's & dad's a big hug this Christmas Season...when they are gone...there is a big hole in your heart.
Merry Christmas and God Bless.
