    My beautiful Aunt Marie:
    The most peaceful and generous person in my life and the life of all she encountered. Also a very brave, yet humble woman. She was a lot like my grandmother and grandfather combined (her mother & father) Rose & Frank Coco. All loving and courageous people; never afraid to do what is right in all situations. I will miss her loving ways forever, as I do my grandparents. It is with heavy tears I write this; Reflecting on all of the memories I cherish with my Aunt Marie, Uncle Sandy, and wonderful 1st cousins Theresa and Rosemarie (Terri and Ro). We all grew up together living side by side and we’re blessed with everlasting memories of family happy times. Yes there were struggles along the way, but we always were determined to get through them together! We even shared most lawn equipment items and vehicles, then worked side by side to maintain and fix them, no matter who last used or even broke them. These are life long lessons of forgiveness; To always look forward to a new and better day, regardless of past hardships. I’m forever thankful to have the Basile’s as my cousins, Coco’s (nee Rose Buffa) as my Grandparents. Thank you God in Heaven. Please bring my Aunt Marie to be with You, and my Uncle Sandy, in Paradise! Your loving nephew, Frank
