Theresa Petruccio Obituary

OUR MOTHER
OUR MOTHER WAS A DAUGHTER, A GRAND DAUGHTER, A LITTLE SISTER, BIG SISTER, COUSIN, NEICE AND GOD DAUGHTER – BEFORE SHE WAS OUR MOM…
OUR MOTHER WAS A COUSIN, A BEST FRIEND, AND A SILLY TEENAGER BEFORE SHE WAS OUR MOM ….
OUR MOTHER WAS A BROOKLYN DODGERS CHEERLEADER, A SECRETARY, AND A MAH JONG PLAYER BEFORE SHE WAS OUR MOM ….
OUR MOTHER WAS A GIRLFRIEND, MY DADS FIRST LOVE, A FIANCE AND A NEW BRIDE, A DAUGHTER IN LAW & A SISTER IN LAW BEFORE SHE WAS OUR MOM…
SHE WAS SO MANY THNGS TO SO MANY PEOPLE BEFORE SHE WAS OUR MOM –
BUT THEN WE CAME ALONG AND GAVE HER THE NEW TITLE OF MOMMY - THAT WE TRULY FEEL DEFINES HER.
AROUND THE SAME TIME, SHE ALSO BECAME AN AUNT AND GODMOTHER.
EVERYONE SAYS THEIR MOM IS THE BEST AND WE BELIEVE ITS TRUE, CHILDREN ARE A PIECE OF THEIR MOTHERS HEART AND THEY ADORE THEIR MOTHER AS
THEY SHOULD. SAME IS TRUE OF US, WE ADORED OUR MOTHER, SHE WAS OUR BEST MOM EVER, SHE WAS A PROTECTOR, A TEACHER, A STAY AT HOME MOM, AND OUR BEST FRIEND.
SHE WAS THE FACE WE LOOKED FOR AS WE CAME OUT OF SCHOOL, GIRLS SCOUTS, BOY SCOUTS, LITTLE LEAGUE, AND DANCES. SHE WAS ALWAYS THERE, ALWAYS !
SMILING AND CALLING OUR NAMES. IT WAS ALWAYS THE BEST PART OF THE DAY.
THAT NEVER CHANGED, SHE SCREAMED IN THE STREET FOR US TO COME IN AND EAT WHEN WE WERE KIDS AND GONE FOR HOURS. SHE CALLED OUR FRIENDS’ HOUSES WHEN WE WERE TEENAGERS LOOKING FOR US ANY HOUR OF THE NIGHT. THOSE CALLS ARE LEGENDARY. 
THE MEMORIES ARE ENDLESS AND FOREVER IN OUR  HEARTS AND MINDS WITH THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF PICTURES TO REMINICE TOO. LAUGH AND CRY TO CHERISH. SHE LOVED OUR SPOUSES
( SOMETIMES I THINK MORE THEN US )
SHE LOVED BEYOND MEASURE HER GRANDCHILDREN & THEIR SPOUSES WITH EVERY FIBER OF HER BEING, AND OF COURSE HER GREAT GRANDCHILDREN.
AS ADULTS WE LOVED TO HANGOUT TOGETHER ,GO SHOPPING, GO FOR DINNER, HAVE COCKTAILS AND LAUGH; LISTEN TO MUSIC, SHE LOVED TO SING SHE HAD
A BEAUTIFUL VOICE.
OUR LIVES GOT A LITTLE QUIETER NOW, HER VOICE ALTHOUGH IN OUR EARS FOREVER IS SILENT ALONG WITH HER LAUGH THAT WAS CONTAGIOUS …. AND HER
FAVORITE GREETING “HI MY HONEY” WILL BE MISSED ….
BUT WE KNOW THAT SHE IS BACK WHERE SHE BELONGS NOW, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN WITH HER PARENTS AND TWO OF HER SISTERS AND OF COURSE HER HUSBAND, HER LIFE PARTNER AND LOVE WHO SHE MISSED SO MUCH. ALONG WITH MANY FRIENDS, COUSINS, AND AUNTS AND
UNCLES- I HOPE THE BIGGEST PARTY IS GOING ON AND SHE IS HOLDING A VODKA TONIC, DOUBLE LIMES ---
CHEERS MOM, YOU WERE ONE OF A KIND- ENJOY PARADISE UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN
OUR PARENTS HAD AN EXPRESSION THEY WOULD SAY TO EACHOTHER , 
I LOVE YOU
THE OTHER WOULD SAY, HOW MUCH ?
THE ANSWER WAS ALWAYS
ALL THE MUCH
MY DAD SIGNED EVERY CARD TO HER
ALL THE MUCH, JOE 
MOM, WE LOVE YOU ALL THE MUCH, UNTIL WE RUN INTO YOUR ARMS AGAIN. REST IN PEACE AND LOVE FOREVER XOXOX 

LOVE YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN XOXOX
