Thank you all for coming today to celebrate the life of Rosary Patane….Wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and dearest friend.
Months ago, on a day that mom felt as hough her life had no value, her body no beauty, and her soul no worth, my sister Karen, wrote a beautiful letter in an effort to ensure her how much she mattered.
Not many people hear their own eulogy or how others truly feel about them, but luckily Karen had the privilege to share these feelings with mommy, and now we get to share them with you.

So… here is a reading from the book of Karen, to Rosary

If my math is correct, You washed approximately 8,760 soiled cloth, non-disposable diapers. 
You kept a beautiful and immaculate household for us to grow up in. 
You made sure we had 3 healthy meals every day.
You threw amazing birthday parties for us.
You allowed us to have dogs, even though they created more work for you. You even made sure the dogs were groomed before you were.
You hand made our Halloween costumes and several of our holiday outfits.
You dressed us in all the latest styles.  Although I just learned the other day that Eddie and Chris’ toughskin jeans weren’t actually manufactured with two ply knees. No wonder they couldn’t bend their knees when they sat down! 
Mom, you instilled in us the importance of education. 
You pushed us to give 100% in our studies, and only expected what you knew we were truly capable of.
You always helped us with our homework and provided the most interesting subject material for essays. 
You were our greatest cheerleader and our biggest fan and never missed a gymnastics meet or a football game. 
You thought it was funny to delay your reaction and yell out “home run” from the stands of one of my football games. You had everyone in the stands laughing.
You made sure we never missed practice, even the time the car ran out of gas on 295 along the way. 
You washed tons of smelly football uniforms, and because of your laundering expertise, all of them looked newer at the end of the season than they did at the beginning.  (ad-lib about the stitching breaking)
You made light of the most stressful situations. 
You made the silliest faces, and had an amazing sense of humor. 
You knew all the lyrics to every Johnny Mathis and every Barbara Streisand song ever written. 
You sounded just like Barbara Streisand...well, maybe not, but we told you that you did. 
We so enjoyed watching you and Daddy gracefully waltz across many a dance floor. 
We cherish the times we blasted the sounds of the 70s and 80s dance music on the old Harman Kardon stereo and danced around the house like we were on American Bandstand. 
It was definitely you that blew the speakers, not me. 
You selflessly donated money, goods and plenty of your time to our school fundraising activities. 
You catered my Freshman dance, and made it the most memorable event of my high school years. 
You taught all 3 of us how to drive, and helped us master the art of parallel parking in a1978 Lincoln Town Car. We probably could have been granted our CDL licenses after that. 
You taught us how to mend holes and sew buttons on our clothing. 
You saved Stroehmann bread bags to line our boots with, so our feet stayed warm and dry on snowy days. 
You took care of us when we were sick, better than any licensed practitioner. 
Honey and lemon with a little bit of whisky, will cure anything. 
You told us a cold will last two weeks or 14 days….. There’s no instant cure!
You made us warm camomile tea when our nerves were rattled or our stomachs were upset. Although the taste wasn’t pleasant, it sure worked. 
You taught us how to love and respect everyone.
In the Patane home, we were guilty until proven innocent.
You punished us when we deserved it. 
You gave us a beating once a week, whether we needed it or not, in an effort to keep us in line. 
We learned really quickly that the rattling sound of the wooden spoon drawer meant business. 
By your example, we learned to have empathy, courage, fortitude, honesty, and loyalty. 
You taught us how to respect authority and always play by the rules. 
If an authoritative figure said we were in the wrong, the phrase (and I Quote)“Not my kid,” was never a consideration. No buts about it, we were in trouble. 
We were really good kids, maybe because you threatened us by saying, (and I Quote) “if you ever wind up in jail, I wouldn’t come to claim you until after you’ve spent the night”. 
Eddie and I still don’t understand how Chris never ended up spending at least one night at the evesham police station. 
We do know it was Christopher’s empty beer cans that smothered the roots and killed the big Christmas tree in the front yard, we also know that Chris was smart enough to intercept the certified letter from school about his suspension. All of those qualities had to have come from Dad!
You made sure dinner was on the table by 6pm every evening.
4 pounds of chicken cutlets and 5 pounds of mashed potatoes for dinner, was almost a weekly event. Greens were always brown and white only meals allowed.
You easily resolved any issue we may have had with our friends.
You were kind and nurturing to our friends.
You welcomed and offered food to anyone and everyone that we brought to our home. 
You taught us how to act and react when others were being hurtful. 
You taught us how to stand up for ourselves in any situation. 
You taught us to work hard for the things we wanted, and respect and take care of the reward.
You drove us back and forth to swim with our cousins nearly every day in the summers.
You allowed us to spend weekends with Grand-pop at the shore, knowing we wouldn’t bathe for 3 consecutive days.
You taught us how to take care of one another. 
You instilled in us the importance of family. 
You taught us how to behave in public.
You taught us how to cook, clean, do laundry, and iron.
You made sure we would never be dependent on anyone other than ourselves. 
Together, you and Daddy taught us how to save money and invest for our future. 
Your daughter-in-law, Lisa, doesn’t know it, but Eddie still has that black sock I kept hidden in my room on Conestoga Drive. 
You set us on the path to success and reminded us to always stay humble. 
You took us on awesome vacations to Disney World, Busch Gardens, and the Jersey shore. One of our most memorable was the time you took Lisa and Valerie with us to Williamsburg. 
You cried with us, but always made the sad situation seem better. 
You taught us how to overcome challenges, and not to fear change. 
You allowed us to make and chose our own friends, and somehow inconspicuously steered us away from undesirables. 
You stood up to the neighborhood bully’s father, until Eddie literally carried you away from the altercation. 
You sacrificed having some of the finer things, so that we could further our education and/or learn a trade. 
You opened a deli to help contribute financially, but your generosity foiled your project, since you packed each hoagie with enough meat to make 3 sandwiches. 
You took on a secretarial job, and quickly became the office “mom.”
You taught yourself how to use a computer, mastered it, then taught others how to use it. 
When the television controllers were unsynchronized, you corrected the problem. 
You took care of Grand-mom Patane when she was too old and frail to take care of herself.
You loved Daddy and Daddy loved you unconditionally. You knew how blessed you were to be the light, the center, and the end all-be all of Daddy’s universe. 
The list of amazing attributes is endless...
These are just a handful of the memories that made you beautiful, Mommy, inside and out. 
Chris and I are grateful that Karen shared all of our feelings with mommy. Although our hearts are broken, and a piece of each us has gone with you into the heavens, we will carry you with us in our hearts and memories for ever and ever. 
Karen, Chris and I, are who we are because of our Mom, who gave us everything she could. Let our memories of our mother live on forever.
“When you speak of mom,
speak not with tears,
for thoughts of her should not be sad.
let the memories of the times you shared give you comfort,
for her life was rich because of you.”
Great big hugs and kisses, until we meet again.
By the way, you are our favorite.

We are saddened to hear that Rosary is no longer with us in body but will always be present in our hearts and memories. Rosary was our neighbor for 8 years at Four Seasons at Weatherby. We shared a few dinners with her, Ed and two other couples and she always had us laughing. Rosary would always tell us stories of her younger days and the wonderful times at the Jersey shore with her huge family. Family was everything to her.
We will miss her.

Thank you Jennifer and Rob! Mom's memory will live on in all of the people she touched in life.
