Memories Timeline


  1. I will always remember the conversations about running away on a motorcycle down Route 66 and going to all the casinos in Las.Vegas..Every conversation was filled with laughs and smiles.. God bless, she will always be in my heart.

  2. We had a wonderful Aunt
    One who never really grew old
    Her smile was made of sunshine
    Her heart of Solid Gold

    I love you Aunt Lucrezia

  3. May you rest peacefully in God's loving arms.
    Emil, Anne and Nick please know you are in my prayers at this time..

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss – Emil,Anne and Nicholas. She was truly an amazing women who I’ve had many fine memories with. She treated me like her own. Maybe she Rest In Peace

  5. Lucrezia my long life friend we shared a lot of memories together. You’re starting a new life now in heaven I will miss you dearly. I love you and I will miss you forever until we meet again.
    My deepest condolence to you Annie, Emil and Nick Be strong and safe you have an angel watching over you

  6. Annie, Emil, Nick and Family, With Deepest Sorrow, Sympathy and Condolences on the loss of your Beautiful and Kind Lucrezia. I will Always Remember Lucrezia and her most complimentary and kind persona thru Many decades when our families were together for celebrations. When you mentioned to her that she was a sincere, beautiful person inside/out and what a great woman and mother she was, she always accepted it in private, but shrugged it off…. We All know that we All have our quirks, but you made them quirky enough that we always smiled with you, not at you…. You were truly One of a Kind who always made someone feel Special, and You Were a Amazing human on Earth and now a Special Angel in Heaven. My Prayers are with you; Lucrezia and your family, may you watch them now as You always cared for them before. Rest in Peace; Standing as its Over till We Meet Again; Know that you were truly loved by many and We will Miss You and You will Never be Forgotten, my dear ONE.
