Without you

Without You Mom&Dad without you, there would be no me. Your love, your attention, your guidance, have made me who I am. ... Without you, I would be lost, wandering aimlessly, without direction or purpose. You showed me the way to serve, to accomplish, to persevere. Without you, there would be an empty space I could never fill, no matter how I tried. Instead, because of you, I have joy, contentment, satisfaction and peace. Thank you, mom. I have always loved you and I always will.

Would you know my name, if I saw you in heaven? Would it be the same if I saw you in heaven? I must be strong and carry on, 'cause I know I don't belong here in heaven. Would you hold my hand if I saw you in heaven? Would you help me stand, if I saw you in heaven? I'll find my way through night and day, 'cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven. Time can bring you down, Time can bend your knees. Time can break your heart, Have you begging please, begging please. Beyond the door, there's peace I'm sure, and I know there'll be more tears in heaven. Eric Clapton

I remember when Tom was born. Lots of decisions which proved to be good ones! Tom was one of the first to have such a shunt placed..so Tom you are special in that way. There also was a special nun who help Mom give birth to you. Her name was Sister Adele. Does anyone remember visiting her at the convent. Sister Adele has a great impact on Mom.

In tears we saw you sinking and watched you fade away Our hearts were broken, we wanted you to stay. But when we say you sleeping, so peaceful and free from pain. How could we wish you back with us to suffer again. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home.

(I tried this once already but I couldn't seem to get it to stick, you would think Im polish instead of an Italian. But then whats the difference?) Mr. & Mrs. "o" AKA mom and dad. I would like to thank you two for having such a large Family. (way to go Mr. O) Your family has always made me feel like I belonged. There has never been a time in my life that I knew I couldnt count on everyone of them. I have so many fond memories like "I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden" Do you remember Dee and Linda? Or about the time we (dee and I) dressed up tammy and pushed her outside to see what frisky would do? Boy were we ever brats!! Anyway Mom and Dad, If it werent for you two falling in love, getting married and having lots and lots of children, I would never have met the dearest friend in my life and a loving family or the funny and some sad memories. So Thank You for the love you have given me through the times and the memories. The other sister, Nancye
