Maria and John,
We all have such fond memories of your mother at our holiday get-togethers. She always welcomed our large brood with a warm smile and a loving heart. We will always remember her cheerful, easy laugh and delicious Italian meals. May she rest in peace and enjoy watching the Yankee games with your Dad in heaven.
Sending our love,
The Picards

So sorry to hear about the loss of Aunt Rita. Such a vibrant sole before Alzheimer's robbed her of her beautiful self. She is free at last and dancing with Uncle John again. Oh the parties she could throw! Nothing out of sorts and absolutely everything matching! Love her dearly.
