My memories of nana are many. I never met a person who was as good to everyone as nana. She was giving in every way, from the first time I met her she welcomed me into her home and family. I will never forgoet our morning cups of coffee and our conversations that were always more about me than her, but that was type of women she was. I love you nana. I know I will see soon.

I will miss running into your dear Mom at Pizzi's enjoying a cold ice cream or roaming the crowded isles at Market Basket. Always had a great, warm, genuine smile. Lots of love to all of the DiMatteo Family. God Bless and Heaven gained a beautiful angel.
Love, Paula Hachey
