    Dear Shelly & family,
    I have so many childhood memories of your mom. She always made snowmen with us in front of your home when you lived in Albion. Summers spent at your Rooney St. home were always fun. Just what she needed; another kid to feed! But I was always welcome and her cooking was wonderful. Dishes had to be done, kitchen floor mopped, house in order, beds made, bathroom cleaned – these had to be finished before we could walk to the Rec Center pool for the afternoon. She was tough but that was okay; she knew how to raise children to be responsible. I know you will miss her very, very much. Cherish and celebrate her always. She was a great lady! Love, Diane

    Dear Micky and family, You are in our hearts and prayers as you deal with the unbelievable shock of losing your precious Ang’ and Mom.
    The world has only to look at all of you to realize what a magnificent legacy she has left for the rest of us. And now you have your very
    own angel in heaven, interceding for you all and making certain that God cares for you tenderly in times of need. Like now.
    We will forever remember Angie as a warm and generous lady with a strong faith and a great laugh.
    With love and blessings, Joey, Emily, Benita and Angelika

    To all the Giardina family,
    Your loss is a heavy one. A sad time, I feel your loss.
    At last her suffering is over and she is now at peace with Marie.
    She was a mom to me whenever I entered her home. A truly admirable woman.
    With sympathy and love,
