Mom enjoyed life to the fullest and right up until the end had something smart to say. Mom loved her sports and was watching baseball at the end! She loved her family and we were all blessed to have a very active mom, nana and great nana who attended as many sporting events , dance recitals and gymnastics as possible. She was our biggest fan and always said “have fun”!
