  1. She was lucky to have you....and you were lucky to have her.
    A life well lived :)

  2. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. The world is truly a better place for having had her in it. With love and sorrow I say Rest in Peace.
    20 years ago today she graced my wedding with her presence, may she be dancing with her husband in heaven.

  3. Christopher,
    Sherma and I were thinking of you around the holidays which are probably especially hard on you this year with your mom resting comfortably in eternity with her maker. We thought the world of you and how you took outstanding care of you beloved mother. We wish more children would give as much as you had to their elderly parents while they have the chance.
    We want to wish you a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy new year. It was a privilege knowing you and we wish you the best in all your future endeavours.
    Dr. Dan Bonomo & Sherma

  4. I was looking on the web for a ricotta pie recipe, as I am unfamiliar with them, I checked MANY sites and found you and your recipe. I am determined to make one this Easter inspite of the fact that I not Italian. I believe I was in another life, since I do love Italian food, lol. I copied the recipe and then starte to read some of your blog.
    I am so sorry for the losses you have suffered. I lost my mom in 1992 due to complications of Alzheimer's. I am also sorry to see that you haven't resumed your blog. You may have lost the original reason for writting, but you still have a gift of writting. You need to keep it up and still give we voyeurs a glimpse of someone else's "normal" life.
    Give us rememberances of your mom, things she said and did.
    I remember my dad watching mom "plant" serenam cherry seeds where they dropped so her hedge would grow fuller (she'd take her finger and push the "seed" down into the ground). Dad eventually figured out her intentions, but couldn't resist, "Mabel, are you expecting to grow your own rabbits??" She had been poking rabbit pellets, not cherry seeds. She didn't live that down for a long time.
    Well enough from me. I hope to read more from the "pen" of CE Lanni.
    God Bless
