    To my Bubbie Goldie,

    My strong loving Bubbie who always lit our hearts with love and supported us beyond distance. Bubbie you were and are our guide for life. You taught us what is family what is respect and surrounded us with love. Bubbie you have looked after us and we know that no matter what we could always count on you as grandchildren but also as friends. I miss you. It’s very painful to know you are with God now but I know you are in peace and that you are always looking after us.

    When I close my eyes, I treasure and cherish every single moment spent with you. In Italy or in the US, we have spent so many special moments together that nobody can take away from me. As my eyes flood with tears, I smile thinking about how many good times we spent together and how precious these memorials are to me and my siblings.
    Bubbie I will love you forever and will do my best to make you a proud grandmother.

    The sky is not a barrier between us, you are here and will always be our Cutchy sweetly tapping on the table with your left hand smiling at us and calling for our attention.

    We love you,
    Andrea, Giordana and Matteo

    Dear Lynda and Billy,
    My deepest sympathies at the passing of your much loved Mom. She is still so much alive in you as she has passed so many of her beautiful qualities to you, and you to your children. I am sad for you but happy for Goldie, that all the suffering that I witnessed over the last few months is now over forever and she is now with God and her deceased loved ones, resting with them in the joy and peace and the love of God in heaven.

    Goldie, may your spirit soar as though on the wings of an eagle, high and free from earthly cares. Pray for us and watch over all your children that you and they may one day be together again with God. Rest in peace, dear Goldie.

    goldie, I miss you so much and think of you every day. Just one more cup of coffee or ht tea in the cold weather. You always had a big smile when I stopped by to see you no matter how sick you were and still offered to make me something. You were the best. You always had a big heart. Thank you for the gifts for my grandchildren and always bringing Ray his cheese from Italy and a little something for me. I know you can hear me. We will see each other again for a cup of coffee with God.
    Love and miss you more than the moon and the stars.
    Your dear friend always.
    Bev and Ray

    You will be missed, Goldie. What a wonderful mother and grandmother you were. I remember the first time I ate at Rudy’s Deli in Garden City. You would tell me all about your beautiful daughter, Lynda. Later, you would always talk about your beautiful grandchildren. The excitement in your voice and the big smile on your face truly demonstrated your love for your family.
    My condolences to Lynda, Diego and Billy as well as Andrea, Giordana and Matteo.
