Dear Mariemma,
I don’t know if you remember me, but I am Evelyn Bruzza’s daughter, Jane. I Just read about your Mom in The Coast Star, and it brought back some wonderful memories. I still remember your Mom’s homemade banana cream pie when she had us over for a turkey dinner. What a sweet lady, and you were so fortunate to have her for all these years. And how my Mom loved working with you! I was looking at the beautiful pictures you posted on this site. You have not changed a bit! May the Lord be with you and give you strength at this time of loss. Jane

My mom was the greatest, she was an encouraging to everyone and an inspiration to all she met. We we’re close in age and therefore she grew up with me. She was loved by all she met and especially her beloved family. I had the privilege of seeing her every day and had lunch with her and our friends every day. Most mothers and daughters don’t have the relationship we had. I loved her so very much and God gave her to me for 94 years and I thank him for that. It gives me comfort to know she is in heaven with my dad. Will love you forever mom. Mariemma
