    I will miss my sweet mother-in-law, and I’m so thankful for the time I had with her! She had an delightful sense of humor and such a gentle heart. She enjoyed watching her great-grandchildren play, and I enjoyed listening to her conversations with them. How she raised twelve children and kept her sanity I amazing! There were five of us, and we almost killed each other! I just wish she would have answered that telephone more often! She was truly a gift to those who loved her!

    Great fond memories of Mr. and Mrs. Pileggi.
    I worked at Pantry Pride during my high school years with their daughter, Mary. They would always come thru my check out. They usually would have 3 to 4 buggies full of groceries and always always had the biggest smiles and Mr. Pileggi would always tease me about the amount of groceries that I had to ring up to earn my money and Mrs. Pileggi would always have the most beautiful smile on her face, always cheerful. So sorry for your loss Mary Crotts. Your parents were a wonderful loving couple.

    I have many wonderful memories of your family from our Mayfair years, and of course from Little Flower Church. I can still see your beautiful big family with all of you kids in church taking up that whole pew and your dad as usher. Your mom was such a kind lady. I ran into her several times over the years around town and still enjoy seeing Carolyn and Angela at Mass. I am praying for you all at this difficult time and hope that you find comfort in knowing that your mom and dad are together again.
