Joann and I were so sad to hear of the passing of your mother. In the short time we got to know her, she made such an impression on us. Her quick wit and passionate disposition made her such a joy to talk with. She truly was one of a kind. God Bless your family at this most sorrowful time.

Dear Vaccarello Family,
Your mom came into my life when I anticipated my move to Pittsburgh 43 years ago. I not only rented an apartment from her but I was adopted by her wonderful family. Through the years I have experienced many happy occasions and joy but sadness too as I felt so much love from all of you like I was family.

I felt honored to be able to call your beautiful Mary, Aunt Mary! I will always cherish the wonderful memories I have of her. She was a precious gift to all of us in so many ways.

May you find comfort in the love she expressed to you in so many ways and strength in the example she set for you. Her family is a true example of the amazing woman I am so proud to call my friend and Aunt Mary.

You are in my prayers....Love....Linda

Dearest John & Family,
What is Lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness. Mary was lovely, with a lovely heart to match! I will miss our conversations and texts sharing our love for our granddaughter Lexi! It gave me pleasure to hear her smile on the phone, or see her happiness with every picture or video I would send to her of Lexi! How we would laugh and cry each time we saw Vinnie's personality and zest for life appear in Lexi! I know she is with Vinnie saying, live, love, do your best & be happy! I am thankful the Lord brought Mary & I together, and I know she will be missed by her family, and so many friends! I will miss her very much. Keeping all of you in my prayers, and knowing memories of Mary will live in your hearts for forever.
Love,
"BJ" Valetutto "GiGi"

My sweet, sweet Aunt... there was no one kinder, more loving, and more loved. Your outward beauty didn't even compare to your gorgeous soul. Always genuine, compassionate, uplifting , and positive.
Always making people feel loved with your warmth. Qualities that are so rare and hard find in people.

You had such a fun beautiful energy, a spark, that mischievous smile, a love and zest for life. You made it so hard not to completely fall in love with you. You truly lived life to its fullest which I so admire. You were so incredibly strong and your huge heart was always finding the good in things. You loved your family so much and I see so much of you in your boys. God blessed this earth and our lives with you. We will miss you forever. Rest in Peace. I know you are my beautiful guardian angel now watching over me!
