Memories of Mom,
Now your with your Mom and Dad, Daddy, Donna, everyone you have been missing. So many years of memories, when I was small when Noni (your mom) still lived in East Boston and were on Revere on Taft Street for so many wonderful years, telling me to come in from outside when the street lights came on, showing me how to sew, wish I watched better. Making pizzelle cookies, taught me how to make Gravy w/Meatballs, homemade pasta, some of the best times on Taft St. all my friends loved you.

Remember, you sewing in the attic and making the Revere Pop Warner Cheerleading uniforms for us in the 70's, then Revere High Cheering skirts for us. Taking me and Ernie to Maine, Milton Mills, Acton, in the summer I must have been 5. Dad going to Suffolk Downs, Bringing home China Roma or Sunny's ice cream. Blizzard of "78" when Uncle Ralph carried Noni, from Beachmont and got her us on Taft St. You did so much for Me, Ern and Donna. Then helping me with Daniel. Hard to think of this world without you, you will always be with me for the rest of my life. Love You Alway's Mom, be happy your with Dad now.

As I type this, my heart is broken into tiny little pieces. Throughout my life, you were always near, you were never too far. I remember watching you downstairs sewing jackets, and making clothes. Oh how I wish I had watched a little bit closer, and learned more from you. I still remember our Saturday morning shopping trips, that included listening to Lady In Red, and how you would sign along with the song, or how you would cook your heart out for holidays, from making your chickens wings, to making Italian cookies, and your meatballs.

I will forever have these memories, Ahlanna will forever have the memories of you teaching her different techniques when drawing, and Kira will forever have the memories of eating breakfast with you every morning, while she showed you cartoons on her iPad. A day will not go by when you are not missed or thought of. Mike will always have the memory of you making sure that he was well fed (we all will). Mike will also always have the memory of watching you with our girls, how you interacted with each one. You always made sure that everyone ate enough and had everything they needed.

My Aunt Mary taught me how to make bulanda and I remember how she was always upstairs sewing making her brother coats for the winter. Will miss her she was a wonderful person.

Yes, what a wonderful aunt! "Anne-Marie what's new in your life", I remember her asking me each time she visited. Italian bakery goodies in hand - lemon squares, fig squares, cupcakes with so much frosting, and much more... roasted peppers for my dad. Always thoughtful, I remember her smiling eyes, an attic full of sewing material as she measured me for skinny girl polyester pants, which I took home with me in many colors - I must of been 8 years old. Such a kind, thoughtful and caring lady! I'll miss you Aunt Mary. Your niece Anne (Marie) DiPrimio Baron

Always such a warm welcome with a great big smile when we visited and when she visited us, she always brought the best tasting Italian bread from a bakery in the city which was such a treat. Will miss you Auntie Mary. Love Anthony DiPrimio

I remember as a little kid catching a catfish from the brook and bringing it home. My Mom cleaned it and cooked it up for Aunt Mary to eat. No one had ever eaten anything I caught before, so sat in awe and watched as Aunt Mary ate my fish that I was so proud I caught. As I look back as an adult, that fish was so small and boney she probably did not enjoy it much, but she ate it happily as I watched with a smile on my face. Love Anthony DiPrimio
