"My dearest Mabel Jane you were my very first playmate many, many, year ago, I have such fond memories growing up as kids along with our other cousins on the farm in Masonville then Merchantville, Camden, Brooklawn and in the summers down the shore in Wildwood at Grandmom and Pop?s home on Leaming Avenue. Your wit, your humor, you kindness and your personality were unsurpassed in the family and, as those have attested before me, you carried these traits through your life till the end. You were an inspiration to all who knew you. God bless you dear cousin and may you rest in peace. Out heartfelt condolences go out to the family for this tragic loss. Sincerely Cousin Joey, Eleanor, and the SCarduizo family."

"My mother was like no other. The purest of souls, if she had it, she gave it and if she didn't have it, she worked hard to get it. She only saw the good in people and in life and didn't focus on the negatives. She raised 11 kids and accepted anyone who needed a bonus mom. She was patient, kind, caring, loving, hard working, funny, strong and beautiful. Her stories were some of the best I've ever heard in my whole life. She was very animated in her story telling, that you felt like you were a part of whatever story she was telling. My mother never yelled at us, she never beat us, she only gave us love, protection, and guidance. She believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. She was always my biggest supporter. I'm going to miss that beautiful smile with her chipmunk cheeks, miss her talking with a mouthful of food, miss her non-cursewords ? even after we were older. I'll miss her telling me how wonderful she thought I was. She was my angel on Earth, now she's my angel in Heaven. I love you mom, and until we see each other again, take care of John for me?"

"I lost my dear sister today and I will miss her every day forward. She was an absolutely grand soul. Raising 10 children was no easy task but she did it with humor and grace. If you met her you could not forget her. She was funny and perseverant even in the hardest of time. God blessed her with many virtues and talents. She loved everyone. She lightened up all our lives. Her family and customers were very special to her. The Mabel Janes of the world are a very rare and special gift. Love you so much Mae "The Sister (Bonnie)"
