Filomena was so special!
Dear Vinnie & Skip,
Your Mom was truly an inspiration. Despite some great sorrows, she always showed the world a smile. She loved life and everyone loved her. The world has lost a very special person.

I remember her birthdays while i was in college in the theater program with Skip, but i remember most Skip telling the story of when she took Filomena to see Titanic on the stage. Sleep well, Filomena.
