Hard to believe my rock my Nana is gone! The times I had with her and the love she gave everytime!
Nana- you know how much I miss you! The feeling of relief and pain flows over me. I miss you more and more everyday. I will never forget the loving arms that I laughed cried and was held in. Always there for me. The OH MY GOD Nana I am going nuts with my kids calls and the how do you potty train a boy calls. You are the strongest most amazing woman and always will be. I remember looking out your kitchen door and watching the train go by, the smell of the ocean, the gentle strokes of my hair, the comforting loving complete arms you wrapped around me when Uncle Ken and Aunt Pat passed. The gorgeous matching rings we have. The lobster lollipops and of course the lunches at Govenors. The smile and love you held my children with. I only ask that you look down on us and that I may follow in your footsteps one day and be as strong as you are. I love you and will miss you! Your memories keep you alive everyday as I tell my children about how strong of a woman you are and you shall rest on my heart everyday. Enjoy life and live it to the fullest you used to tell me. Hold those kids tight because they only get bigger. Your right! I will see you when we meet again.
I love you Nana!

For All My Children

To You With Love

When I am gone, just release me,
let me go - so I can move into
my afterglow. You mustn't tie me
down with your tears; let's be happy
that we had so many years. I gave you
my love, you can only guess how much
you gave me in happiness. I thank you
for the love you have shown, but now
it's time I traveled alone. So grieve
for me awhile, if grieve you must, then
let your grief be comforted with trust.
It's only for awhile that we must part,
so bless the memories within your heart.
And then, when you must come this way
alone, I'll greet you with a smile and
a Welcome Home.

My thoughts are with all of you as you deal with the loss of your Mother. I lost mine some years back and my father just a few years ago so I know how confusing and painful this time is for each of you.

For me Fran...well, we didn't get along so well in the beginning there. Remember? But then she took me to the Moose lodge and got me shnookered so I'd dance with her. We had to walk back to her place through the snow and kept falling down because we were laughing so much. We got along just fine after that. It's a fond memory. Or that time when Bruce Jr wouldn't stop crying so I ran to her place, shoved him in her arms then busted up crying. She showed me what to do...a burp was all it took. Then she laughed, told me to go home, take a break and stay out of the good stuff. hahaha

There were hours on the phone or sitting at her table listening to her talk about her life memories or when she'd reveal the inner secrets of sibling rivalries and how each of you were so different from one another and how she loved each and every one of you. And that's really all that needs to be said, right? She loved you. Each one of you. Remember that...and the funny stuff. There was always lots of funny stuff.

You are gone from this earth, but will be forever in my soul and heart. I LOVE YOU and we will meet again in the ever after. Love you always.
Your Daughter Forever

The sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks, the smell of the salty air, the beautiful lighthouses are why I believe my Nana T lived here. Her body is gone but her soul remains, always a part of Maine. In the ocean she will be helping the lighthouses you see. The light has shown and she chose to follow it home. But for each of us there is something she has left behind. Her stubbornness in each of us we will find. Her ashes we scatter among this place, knowing we will all miss her face. We will shed tears for many reasons as we lay her to rest, here at the lighthouses the place she loved best. She is gone, no longer here. For each of us, we should not fear because she will always be near. A place in our hearts she will always hold, everyone has a memory to be told. There are many things we have to say now that she has gone away. My Nana T I love you dear and for you I will have no fear. Everyone will miss you dear, each of us will shed a tear. So good-bye to you my Nana dear.

Gone from this world, but will never be forgotten.

This strong minded lady enjoyed many friends and relations. Her strength came from the desire to help others in need. She spent many hours caring for her family, assisting non profit organizations such as The Moose Club, VFW, Amvets & Eagles Club & Senior Citizens.

Her talents of working full time, motherhood, cooking, nursing & caring, organization of events; set her as a popular and endearing person.

Everyone who new her will miss her.

We all loved you for the mother you were.

My condolences to the family of this wonderful women. I met Francis when I lived upstairs from her on Margaret St. That was almost 20 years ago and I had 4 boys with me. They always brought her name up when we would think back on those days. She was a wonderful and caring person and my sons loved her. I find myself very fortunate to have known such a wonderful person.

The awful paint colors you would chose for the kitchen walls.
The trips to the State Parks for picnics.
The red 3 speed bike for my birthday.
The Halloween parties at nana's.
The broken wooden paddle.
The sound of the organ at 1 A.M.
Your face as I graduated from SPHS.
Going back home one last time.
Replacing the rotor you took from my car.
Dancing with you at my Wedding reception.
Your help with my Halloween costume.
The trips to the Christmas Tree Shops.
The lunches at Willows.
You complaining about the height of my truck.
Having to be strong as I watched the "changes" start to happen to you.
Your strength, your determiination,
Your helpfullness, your laughter.
The pain I felt the night the call came.
The relief I felt knowing you no longer were suffering.
The last time I hugged you and said good-by.
The last time I told you I loved you.

I will ALWAYS remember.
