This is one of her grandkids, Lauren Pullan’s second child. I miss her, and if any of my family is reading this, hello.

Dear Lauren & Nick, so very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a lovely lady and very kind to me years ago when I joined the Pappalardo family ❤️ I considered her a real friend and we shared some fun times while you all still lived together here in Michigan. Sending LOVE, prayers and HUGS – Aunt Colleen/Uncle Phil & family
