Steve and Family,
We are so sorry for your loss. It was so wonderful knowing your mom the short time we did and watching how she truly gave of herself to all the babies she cared for. She was such a good example of the way life should be lived …in service of others. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.
Julie, Joe, Emily and Megan LaMantia

Nana, I miss you so much. Without you here with me, I feel so lost and words can’t even explain the pain i feel. You were and still are my everything. You come to me in my dreams sometimes and tell me not to worry, that we will be together again someday, but someday is way to far away. You hold me tight, and kiss me on my forehead, i can’t stand up, i am to weak. I don’t know how I would have turned out if you weren’t in my life. I think about you every day and try my hardest to hold my tears back, but it is too much ost of the time, I cant fight this pain anymore. I will be with you soon Nana. I love you. Forever and Always.
Love your “Little Baby Doll”
Mikayla <3
