Remembrance of Mary:
We first observed the love Mary had for her children when we visited Pittsburg shortly after David was born. That love grew and sustained Mary through some difficult years of her glorious life. Shortly before her 95th birthday, Mary called to inform us that she had become weary and we knew she was ready to take the hand of our Lord and Savior. How wonderful it was that a birthday celebration enabled her "boys" to show how much they appreciated those years of love.

David, Don, and Bobby,
Your mother was a strong and independent woman who lived a good life. I appreciate that she remained close to us throughout her long and distinguished life. My father and I will miss her terribly. Love, cousin Terry DeMatteo and Uncle Tony DeMatteo
