My brother, Matthew, and I wrote this together to honor our beautiful grandmother.

Matthew and I had the privilege of living our childhood upstairs, or as we called it, “up the hill”, from our Grandparents. They were a part of our every day lives, so we had a difficult time narrowing down what specific memories to share. So, we decided to create a thank you list for you, Grandma.

- Thank you for putting us on and taking us off the school bus every day with a hug and kiss.
- Thank you for feeding us leftover Sunday pasta and meatballs complimented by a glass of grape juicy juice for breakfast before sending us off to school.
- Thank you for watching us countless nights so our mother could finish school to support us.
- Thank you for always looking out for mom, Matthew and I. When mom was too embarrassed to ask for help, you always took the initiative to sneak us upstairs and help clean our house. Then, when mom came from home from work and school, everything was already done.
- To build on that, thank you for teaching us the right way to make a bed and to clean the house according to your extremely high standards.
- Thank you for giving us a secret dinner before mom came home and fed us her dinner. This ultimately resulted in two dinners each night and therefore, contributing to, as Matthew would say, our child obesity days.
- Thank you for teaching us how to eat and enjoy more food in one sitting by not drinking anything, but a few sips, with our meals.
- Thank you for cooking us pastina and spinach, or whatever other food we were craving, when we were sick.
- Thank you for attempting to teach us how to cook your delicious recipes without no actual measurements, but by using words such as “a handful”, “a pinch”, or our favorite, “I guess you can quickly count to about 5 before you stop pouring”.
- Thank you for being so patient with us as you started our homework before mom came home. For those of you that don’t know, my brother would run away from the table screaming during this time and I would erase my paper so hard until they were holes in it and then cry for more paper. During this chaos, our Grandma would just sit there with a smile, laugh, and tell us to keep trying, all while correcting our grammatical errors.
- Thank you for instilling our faith and teaching us how to be a follower of God.
- Thank you for teaching us the value of family through your countless actions of always putting family as your first priority.
- Thank you showing us that love doesn’t always have to be physically or verbally expressed, but it can be felt solely through eye contact.
- Thank you always putting on a smile to give us the assurance that you were are okay, even if you weren’t.
- Thank you for raising the beautiful woman we are lucky enough to call our mother.

The truth is that we can continue this list forever because we are eternally grateful for all that you were, for all our memories with you, and for all that you’ve taught us. But most importantly, we thank you for loving us as your other two children.

We will miss you more than words could describe, but we will hold these memories of you in our hearts forever and instill the values you’ve taught us in our own children. May you Rest In Peace as the angel you were to us here on Earth. We love you so very much, Grandma.

Love Always and Forever,
Matthew & Allyse

To my great aunt Marie,

I will miss you forever. When our grandmother Angela past away when we were children, you never made us feel like we were without that figure in mine, my brother Richie's, or my sister Heather's lives. You loved us and treated us as your own grandchildren, and never anything less. You taught us about kindness and compassion. Most of all you showed us about the importance of family. We will continue to live our lives with your lessons and will love our children with the same immense love you shared with us. Thank you for always being there for my mother also and looking after her and her children. She adored you more than you will ever know. I know that a lot of what made my mother who she is today is because of you and your love. We will forever be grateful for our memories with you. We will love you always Aunt Marie.

Love Angela

I met Andrea and her wonderful family back when our daughters were in OLM together and in Girl Scouts. We even had the girls’ First Communion parties in adjoining rooms in the same restaurant! Even after Andrea moved back out East, we would visit. Her mother and father were so gracious and were like another set of grandparents to my daughter. We always enjoyed Marie’s Ronies and her sauce which was gravy in my dad’s family too. I don’t understand how one family could go through so much but Marie was a very strong woman and her family lived through her example. You are at peace now and I know you will continue to watch over your precious family.

My son Ralph married into the CONTE family and then I met MARIE CONTE. Marie was a wonderful woman who held the
family together as a wife, mother, grandmother and Aunt. She held the family together in a very special way. Marie was a
strong, brave, loving person to all who knew her. When illness struck, she took it bravely, always smiling, letting all those
around her know that she had the ability to deal with whatever G-D had in store for her. She will be sorely missed by all
who knew her, but she will never be forgotten. My memories of being with her at family functions will always be with me. My condolences to my daughter-in-law Andrea, her sister, brothers, Doreen, Gary Thomas. and Marie's husband Tom.

My Grandma Marie,

What words can I use? Kind, generous, forgiving, family first, strong and an iron clad will. There are so many memories, from when she and grandpa baby sat me, taught me card games, great musicals, cooking, to the last 14 years of just pure will power to beat all odds.

The thing that stuck out most is the way grandma used to be strict and reasonable when teaching a lesson. She used bite her hand then calmly explain why you can't or shouldn't do that. she showed respect no matter what and that's what she commanded. She was the epitome of FAMILY first. Once she hears one of us are sick or needs help, she was there before you know it. She showed us that no matter what, no matter how bad or good family sticks together. Here we are like Thanksgivings, Easter, Christmas, and every single birthday and special occasion sticking together like you taught us Grandma.

Grandma's love and strength can be felt from the first days we met her to the very last. Her cooking no one can repeat because there was this overwhelming love that made it the best. Even though the best meat sauce was by grandpa. No matter what she made sure we had our fill of love and food, even when we didn't want a second plate. None of us could resist Grandma giving us that plate and her favorite line "What? you don't like my cooking?" haha Even during the last 14 years grandma will just look at you and you know you better take a second plate of food during the holidays. We all know what grandma was thinking these past few years by each of her looks. We know she had one last lesson to teach us, never back down and be with everyone every moment you get. Family, Friends, partners, etc. Because as long as you have that flow of love you can survive anything. When I heard how grandma finally left us and joined Nanny and Bobba. I knew she left on her terms, she left when she felt the most peace. This speaks volumes and you only meet this type of person once in a lifetime and I'm proud to say it was my grandma Marie, The Icon of the family, The jewel, the person that made us full of love to spread throughout and keep pumping between each other.

I love you Grandma, I miss you, and as all things I shall join you at some point but not anytime soon. Save some cooking for me in Heaven, I know you and Nanny will be cooking up a storm and singing for everyone.
