May your unextinguishable love, light, and laughter shine down forevermore. May you rest eternal with our Eternal Father, beloved son Tony, Anthony and Leona, Robert and all the blessed souls who have preceded you. You were a true follower of our Lord placing everyone before yourself and always giving selflessly. Thank you for the lifetime of love, learning, and support only a mother can give. Our loss is unimaginable, your absence unfillable, my mourning eternal
