Thank you for always encouraging and praying for us. We have had a lot of laughs along the journey. Your love will live on in our hearts. We were able to experience 24 years of marriage from your prayers. You will be greatly missed.
Love Matt & Colleen Russo

Mamma thank you for the DRUG problem you gave me. I then was also able to give it to your granddaughters.

I was DRUG to church on Sunday morning.
I was DRUG to church for weddings and funerals.
I was DRUG to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.
I was DRUG by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.
I was also DRUG to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report

I love You Nana I hope to grow up and become more like you. When I count my blessings you are on the list I will miss you so much it hurts to say see you later to someone so wonderful. I cannot ever re-pay you for all your kindness. You never said no to babysitting, all three of your Granddaughters. Your son and I have a better relationship due to all your help and encouraging words and prayers. Love from your daughter in heart Colleen

"Joya de Nana," nana you said this every time I walked into the room. You made me feel so special, and I'm so thankful for your love. I have never felt so loved by anyone in my life. I was your Bumbula; doll, and I always said, "she's MY Nana" as if you weren't shared with anyone else lol. I love you sooo much!!! Thank you for your love, and support and words of wisdom; I don't know where I would be without you.
love, Larissa xoxo

To all the family we are so sorry to hear that Adeline is gone. As with Connie it's hard to realize she is gone. They are probably having a happy reunion in heaven.

We are keeping you all in our prayers.
