I’d like to extend my condolences to the Caruana Family. Lucretia was a one of a kind wonderful lady that I had the opportunity to meet at Brookdale fitness Center years ago. She was fantastic and One of the people I enjoyed getting to know in and out of the gym. Her great smile and encouragement kept me going. She was my true inspiration!! Rest in peace my friend .

Favorite memory of Aunt Lou was we were at a family funeral and she wanted everyone to receive communion at the mass the next morning. She brought the priest to the funeral home to hear everyones confession. And so we all went to communion the next morning. I think that says it all about her. We will miss you.

Oh Mema, where to even begin!? You were such a bright light in the lives of everyone you came in contact with. You had so much life in you for all of your 99 years, and I feel honored to have known you through Gab and the Cincotta family! I loved turning around to exchange words with you during communion at my wedding :) it made me so happy that you came! You made the most wonderful impact on my best friend and her family, and I know that your memories will live on forever here with them and me! Love you Mema!

I wish more than anything that I were there to have said goodbye to Mema, give her one last hug and listen to one more story. Mema accepted me immediately and without question, even though she knew at some point I would sweep her grandson up and take him to Africa with me. I am honoured that I was able to spend time with her. I loved her, she was so wise and so incredibly kind, good hearted and had such a wonderful sense of humour. I will always remember and treasure the photo she gave me of Matt when he was little, with so much pride and love in her heart. Mema created a beautiful, loving family, who will always miss her and always love her, just as much as she adored and loved them. I love and miss you all, my heart is right there with you.

All my love and condolences to all of Mema’s family, whom she loved so dearly and was so rightfully proud of. The world has lost a beautiful soul but heaven has gained a precious angel. I will always miss you.

My Aunt was the utmost role model for the entire family. She was disciplined in everything which is something we all aspire to be. A Catholic mother she was who loved St. Anthony and tried to lead her loved ones always in the right direction...the road to Our Lord, Jesus Christ. As a very young, undisciplined niece, she was too hard for me to deal with. However, after I Became a mother to my first son, Billy, I saw her for her true worth. She was hard working, determined, and forever trying to advise her entire family. She taught me the true meaning of motherhood without even knowing. She taught me how to sew on my machine and later on in life how to make the best ever Fish Salad. It’s a real skill...trust me. Every year I would call her to refresh my memory for my Christmas Seafood Salad. Our conversations were very long and duly lovely. She always reminded me of her brother (my father’s) carefree and fun personality. That explained much as my similar persona always got me in trouble with him. But I never cared. We are who we are. Aunt Lu was not only our last living legend at 99 from her generation, but also priceless in her constant dedication to family. This is a light that shined more bright than many, many others. The woman in my eyes is an icon of what all mothers should be. My heart weeps for her children and family for this is a loss incomparable to any other. I will miss her terribly; but knowing in the pit of my spirit that she is well taken care of and so joyful in her journey home consoles me. Aunt Lu, watch over us and help us to have the understanding and wisdom with which you lived your life trusting in Jesus, our Lord and God. Someday you will meet us again and what a joy that will be. I love you. Rainie
