Friday, May 26, 2017So hurt to find out that my Aunt Rosie passed away. Too bad I couldn't be there but the family never let me know. I was very close to her when I was young. Shame I didn't get to see her again. RIP Aunt Rosie..I will miss you.

Wednesday, April 12, 2017Hello to the family of the lady we loved ."Mrs. Regina," I heard today that lady we loved in grade school has passed on. I am truly at a loss for words, I feel memory of her life and how she has touched mine in my formative years in PS 244. I remember her bright personality and firm and sturdy. She always made sure that my lunch money was paid and was fair, always such a nice person. I encountered her in my young adult years the best thing was that she remembered me from the 2nd or 3rd grade incredible. She is a rare kind of person. I am sure God has Blessed her life. Please accept my deepest condolences. Her life has touched so many children that are now adults in the Brooklyn east flatbush community. Please know that she did good work while she spent time on this earth.

Tuesday, April 11, 2017How do I say "goodbye" to my beautiful Aunt Rose whom I loved so much and for so long? She was a special, unique lady whom I will miss for the rest of my days. As a final tribute I have chosen to post a copy of the letter I wrote to her when she was in hospital.....it tells the story of how we melted the miles between us to keep our relationship rich and constant. May she rest in peace and with God's blessings. My Dearest Aunt Rose, As it happens with most every morning now, I wake up here in California, 3000 miles from Brooklyn and while my body is here, my heart is there with you. I want you to know how much I miss you…..I miss hearing your voice, I miss our visits on the telephone….. I miss our long conversations when we would just ramble together from topic to topic, often about our families, your job, my retirement, your cat, crazy politics or life in general. Like you, I am an avid reader of the daily newspaper, so it was always interesting to hear your take….whether it was about the Mayor of New York or our new President of the USA. Our banter would go back and forth with differing opinions that occasionally settled out with an agreement to disagree. We have shared many good laughs together and occasionally some tears…..especially when we would reminisce about years past, the De Mario family we shared and the people we loved who left us long ago. With a decade between our ages, you have been my thread back to all those years. I can close my eyes today and see you as my bobie-soxer young aunt who was crazy about Frank Sinatra and had a big poster of him to idolize. I can recall how I would spend parts of my summer vacations from school to be with you at Grandma’s house after my own family had moved from Henry Street. Why I even got to go out on some of the dates you had with that tall good looking guy, Vincent Regina and when you fell in love and married him, he became my wonderful Uncle Whitey. I have a picture of you as a beautiful bride captured in my brain when I was your flower-girl. But, then again, there were so many times I watched you dress up, fuss with make up and hair to be a “fashion plate” walking out the door. I am sure my subconscious brain registered all that and I remember how much I wanted to be like you when I grew up. I NEVER leave the house without looking in the mirror to check me out from head to toe….sound familiar?? Years flew by.....going faster and faster as they do and the opportunities I had to be baby watcher for your John and Virginia soon became my Great Aunt Rose’s turn to be baby watcher for my Perry (who loved to sweep your house with the broom you got him), Cheryl, whom you tended with all the loving care that sweet little girl needed and Jeffrey, who drove you crazy wanting and doing everything to which you had to say “NO”. From my homes in Brooklyn, Long Island, Connecticut or California, that loving connection between us has been one I have cherished and I know you felt the same. Your incredible energy, feisty attitude and independent spirit, have served you well throughout your life and are to be admired. You are a marvel... and I often recount to friends how you were still working at the school I attended as a kid. No easy task considering getting to PS 244 required you to travel on two buses and walk long distances regardless of winter weather conditions. I firmly believe they should build a statue in your honor for all the contributions you made with your significant work! I am so proud of you Aunt Rose!! Now, we are moving into a different phase which makes my heart quite heavy. For all the times Virginia will credit how helpful I have been to her, she can hardly know how much having her voice on the other end of the phone telling me how you are doing and discussing the wonderful care you are receiving helps me so much. I am so proud of Virginia and I know you are too. The bond of love that she and I share is so rooted in the love we each hold for you and I want so much to be there for her and you in any way I can. But, I have learned all too well that these are the times when it is necessary to lay our hurts and burdens before God and seek His help.….. and that is what I have been doing….I pray you are too. When I set out to write this note to you, I really had no idea what I would say. But, like our phone conversations, the words just seem to flow. I love you Aunt Rose and always will. Hold this note close to your heart for it is bringing a piece of me to you. May God’s blessings be with you now and forever. Love always…..from Patsy and Josie’s daughter, Virginia
