  9. My condolences to the whole family. I am so sorry for your loss. Bizzy was one of a kind. She was kind and caring and a great friend. God has a new Angel to look over all of you!

  10. So sorry for your loss. I have all beautiful happy memories of Bizzy. May she rest in peace and always still shine her love on you.

  11. You are my guardian angel now Heather! The kids are asking everyday for you and are starting to realize you are in heaven watching down on us. I still can't understand why!!! I guess I never will so please rest in piece till eternity. We love you now and forever grandma Biz

  12. To Mark, My Aunt, and my cousins:
    My mother and Bizzy had a special connection, both sharing a love of giving, and their conversations at times turning to the profound truths of life. I remember my mother's wide-eyed, immense delight when Bizzy introduced her to the song, Greatest Love of All, and my mother, years before, giving Bizzy the Desiderata prayer. We all know my mother's legacy–we all FEEL it–and without question know it means the life she led, regardless of her own trials and tribulations, was a true success. You see, there is no greater thing than for someone who wanted to give happiness to others to then leave behind a never-ending warm memory of themselves.
    I am proud of Bizzy for the love she shared with my siblings and me over the years, regardless of her own trials and tribulations, and giving us the ability to so easily bring forth a memory of laughs and good times. My siblings and I are grateful to her. All of you in her family had given Bizzy joy and love, and unconditionally, as she had very much wanted to, and did, impart to all of you. I know the unbearable sadness you feel. As it was for us with my mother, Bizzy's legacy will firmly stand front and center for all of you. A testament to her success and the great love you all felt for her.

    cousin Linda

  13. So Sorry to hear this Biz was a great woman always had a smile for everyone .Deepest Sympathy to Marc And her Family

  14. i'm still crying everytime I think I will never have a crazy conversation with you again. You always asked how jay bird, berrrs and pea were. ,my little blondies and the little ones… So sad I will never understand…but every time we say cramps we will think of you… love you and miss you MUGS

  15. You had a big heart, and an even bigger personality, and yes I admit it, you were the best bartender. I'm sure you're throwing a ball for Christie once again, reunited with family and friends in heaven. Rest in peace Bizzbuzz.

    Mark and the entire family:
    I was shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. May you all find peace knowing that she's still with you, and will be always. She, and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  16. Mark, please accept our deepest sympathies on the loss of your wife, Biz. You are in our prayers at this difficult time.
    Pam and Ken Boschert

  17. Biz,

    I'm proud to have been able to call you my friend. You were a great, giving person. You will be missed but I'll always remember the crazy fun times we had. Rest in peace my friend. xxo

  18. I miss you so much words can not express how I feel. I've tried to block it out of my mind but I can't. every morning I wake up thinking its a bad dream and all day long I think about you and every night before I go to bed I think of everything I would have said to you through out the day. We spoke at least 3-5 hours every day about basically nothing but you and I were best friends and that's what best friends do! I love you and can't wait to see you again. Love you and so do my kids

  19. Bizzy was my favorite I love her so much and I miss her and so will everyone else. She impacted all our lives in different ways. She cared about me so much and she always worried about me because she wanted me to succeed. I love her and it hurts to lose her but she will always be in our memories. We love you aunt Bizzy

  20. My dear beautiful sister, Bizzy, I miss you so much. Everyday I think of you throughout the day. You have taught me so much like riding a motorcycle, to drive an stick on your brand new 280z.b Had so much fun with you. When we would get caught by mommy I was always the one in trouble. But I wouldn't take a minute back. We had so much fun together. I Love you so much and miss you you were always there for me. I will never understand. You are our angel now. Until we meet again…….forever in my heart my sweet angel.

  21. I am so sad to read that Bizzy passed away. She was a major part of my youth. We worked together at the A&P in Fort lee, and in our off time would spend with our group of friends, doing what teens did.
    I miss you dear friend, and will take the memories of our youth with me, when we meet again!
