    I wanted to take a few moments to thank all of you for all the beautiful comments you have left for our family. The loss of my mother has been very difficult for me. But I am happy that she is now not suffering and in a better place, watching over us. .

    My mother was a single mom that was dealt a hard hand with life, she worked a lot when we were kids. She would work 16 hour days 5-6 days a week. She didn’t have anyone to rely on to help her with bills or unexpected expenses. Every year, there always seemed to be an issue with a car, or one of us kids had to have an eye operation done. I remember when I needed a corrective eye surgery, we went to the hospital at 7 am, and she would pay 5000 in singles and 5’s to pay for hospital bills with all the tips she had earned over the year. And she had to do this 3 times for my brother and I when we were kids. She always made sure she would do her best to take care of us.

    I wanted to share a few of my favorite times with my mother and family with everyone.

    Even with the long days she would work, every Saturday night, she would spend it with us. We would go to Biagio’s in Eastlake. Get some pizza’s and a Bakers dozen of donuts and watch Cash explosion, Wheel of Fortune and Star Trek. She would sit on the couch while us kids would sit on the floor next to the TV and spend time with us.

    During the Mid 90’s when my mom would come home from work, it would be 9-10 at night. I would have the Indians game on the TV. She would sit on the couch and watch it with me. We saw some great games and comebacks. Carlos or Omar, getting game winning hits, or Thome with a walk off home run to win the game in the bottom of their 9th. Then her taking me and my friend Rich to Daffy Dans at midnight to get the ALDS, ALCS and World Series T-Shirts/hats with the tips she made from that weekend. She really couldn’t afford to do this, but she knew how much time we spent together and it meant to me.

    Back at the end of 2005, I had lost my job. Bills were really tight. But my mom would let me use the spare room. Set up a table, so that Casey Wesley, Mike Sheehan and Ed DeTamaso could come over and play cards at the house. She would give me 2 rolls of quarters to use for the buy in, and be able to play Hold Em with my friends. She would always have snacks and Coke/Mtn Dew for us when we played. She would come in every hour or so to make sure we didn’t need any more food or drinks. She would let us play until 2 am, even with Ed and mike flipping out on me all night for playing with an 8/4 when i should have folded.

    Over the short time that my amazing wife knew my mother. My mom was in nursing homes. Every time that Jenny or I would visit her, Mom still would ask us if we ate or needed anything. Even though she couldn’t do anything to feed us, she still wanted to make sure we were ok. Jenny was with me and mom for her last few moments. We were able to let her know that we are OK, and that she can let go. And a few moments later she did.

    I am so great full to have Jenny and Maddie in my life. I can’t even write words to describe how lucky I am to have them, and their love to help me through this. I am grateful, that Mom was able to be there to see me marry the best woman that any man could ever wish for. I want to thank you all again for the kind words and wishes to help us through this.

    I will miss you mom and will always remember you and all you did for me!
