I have been truly blessed to have my Memere in my life for 34 years. I will always hold the wonderful memories of her in my heart. From days in the pool, to painting eggs and birdhouses to the yummy family dinners (where I usually got my own special meal) and all the wonderful holidays. Jackie and I were always surrounded by the love and support of my Memere and Pepere. How lucky were we to have them right down the street! As we got older I was able to spend time with Memere during the summer when her and Pepere came up to New England to visit. We often went shopping for beads (yes more beads!) and would spend time making jewelry, chatting and of course snacking. I loved that we shared a special bond with art and creativity. I'm so thankful she passed down some of her many talents to us all. Every time I work on my art, take a sip of wine or enjoy some ice cream I will have you in my heart. I love you more Memere, always.
