Dear Sweetnich Family,

Thinking of all of you as you go through this difficult time. It is never easy to lose a parent….no matter their age or circumstances.

I do know that your Mom certainly raised a nice bunch of “kids”…..especially Jay and Pat who I shared a lot of fun memories with during my days at SHS.

Ed, Z, Sue Ellen, Jaybird & Midget,

So sad to hear of your Mom’s passing, but thankful that she’s with the Lord & no longer suffering. I swear I can still hear her bantering back & forth with “Motz” Rich Marzella at baseball games. Cherish the wonderful memories she’s a part of…

With Love,

Grandma, I love you more than I could ever express in the only 1000 characters allowed. You and Pap were my world. I will never forget the memories we shared, the times you drove me hours to get to a basketball game in the snow, got me a perm, you swore I wanted to look like little Annie, not sure about that now! I will miss seeing your face and calling you whenever I want to. Know that a moment doesn’t go by that I won’t think of you or miss you. I love you !

Mom, Today I am numb and hollow.The emptiness inside of me is unbelievable.I know you are in a much better place but, the pain of loosing you is hard. I keep waiting for that phone to ring and know now that it isn’t going to happen.Loosing one parent was hard but now loosing 2 is unbearable. What are we going to do without you? You were our “rock”. When I awoke yesterday and realized that I no longer had parents on this earth I felt very lonely and beyond sad. I have never felt such “emptiness”. I loved you more than I probably ever told you but you knew. I hoped that you thought I was a good daughter and that I was there for you when you needed me.

I know that you stayed with us as long as you could and that is was your time. You told us that you once visited those “pearly” gates and came back to us because your children needed you. Well we still need you. We will always need you.

I can imagine the reunion you had with Dad. I wish I could have been there to see that. You are now both together again and that makes me happy. Dad always needed you as much as you needed him. I know you are in a better place. I will miss you and everything about you. We have many memories that we can share and lots and lots of stories that we will cherish. Rest now Mom. You have endured so much and you so deserve to be in a place where pain does not exist. You and Dad take care of each other. Please watch over all of us. We will always need you no matter where you are at. Give Dad a big hug and a kiss from us.I am glad you were my Mother. I would not have asked for any other one. You have done so much for me and my children Julie and Robbie. You were an amazing grandmother and great grandmother.

I will always love you. You will always be in my heart. Rest in peace Mom.

Your daughter,

Sue Ellen
