Mom was a woman of few words but accomplished many things in her lifetime. She came to America with nothing and worked very hard with her late husband, Michelangelo, to make a new life for herself and her family. Mom valued family, friendships, and hosting people in her home. Mom had a great love for her church family and enjoyed the fellowship of her weekly women’s Bible study. She had a funny and playful way about her, a side that not many people got to see.
In 1999 mom’s life was changed when she had a stroke. Despite this, she persisted. She continued to garden, cook, and continue life with her friends and family. Her handicap did not stop her from seeing her grandchildren and taking care of them. In her later days when she began to decline, her life became about talking to people on the phone. Daily she would have her list of people to call and check up on, always remembering everyone’s birthday. The past two years were very difficult for mom due to frequent hospitalizations. Mom knew her days were coming to an end. She expressed that she was ready to be with the Lord when her time came. We will miss her presence, but find comfort knowing she as at peace with the Lord and no longer suffering.
The sufferings of the present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.
