It was always a pleasure talking with Pookie at the reunions. Always so polite, pleasant and a smile that was infectious. We can only imagine the void that will be left by her absence. To all her family and friends. Dean, Frank & Teresa you are so fortunate to have had this beautiful soul to be your Mom.
