I know I'm not going to be able to speak at my Mom's funeral but wanted to tell the story of how my Mom and Dad met. When she was a teenager she use to go to Essex, CT to babysit for some friends every summer. She had lived in Massachusetts. She would walk by the A&P every day and there would be this guy that kept staring at her. She thought to herself (what are you looking at). She had met a friend (Judy) and they use to get together. Judy suggested one night they go on a double date. When she ever showed up for the date and it was the guy at the A&P that kept staring at her she thought OMG not this guy. But that was the beginning of their long relationship. My Mom loved going to Cape Cod with me and going to the beach and picking up shells. She still has a huge collection here in Florida. We had so many great laughs together. I will miss that terribly. I could go on and on with stories but will keep them all in my heart. Until we meet again Mom - I love you so much.
