If only my Mom had actually liked herself- and come from a family that valued women. Instead, unable to admit her vulnerability -she married the wrong man for her- my Dad- and never fully realized her own potential - but did a lot anyway- despite a world that didn't care one bit about her- the way it treats most beautiful women without a good family to protect them and a real sense of self esteem-

Obituary Add details
My Mother was a beautiful, warm talented person who was filled with passion for art and life- she was a great cook and had a truly generous heart- she was too modest and always trusted the wrong men- especially at the end when she was abused and robbed by her mentally diseased nephew who let her fall over and over- never fulfilled his obligations to the state of NY and robbed her estate from her disabled daughter- the rest of her family stood there and let it happen as did the daughters own lawyers and finally - some small compensation was won- I look back at my Mom's life- and see it was equal parts very wonderful and giving and so filled with love of art and life- and then, like so many women- treated so badly by her narcissist husband- my Dad- and her miserable family - her two miserable brothers- her other sibling were good but couldn't save themselves much less her- I believe her brother Pat and sisters tried- the miserable thief who pre-meditated the robbing of her estate should be in jail- were there any justice for people without money - he would be- I learned a lot trying to find any organization set up to stop elder abuse and right the wrongs of thieves and lousy lawyers- there are none - what a shame- my Mom died alone in a non- private room with a paid aide holding her hand- while her nephew - Robert L Ricci- robbed her blind before the body was even cold- I could not be there due to my disability and inability to travel- for three months =not one of the great family she was so good to- whom she made a million meals for and gave a house full of art and jewelry much less money to - could bother to get there to say good-bye to her- not one- and she was even willing to pay their tickets- this miserable woman hating thief Robert lL Ricci - refused to tell anyone that - after she died - he put me through hell for a year and a half while he spent and squandered every dime he could- watch out - the lesson of my Mom's modest life is simple- men rip women off - don't let them- My Mom left me with a house full of art and a passion for so many things- her beauty and joy for so many things is in my heart- i would give anything on earth for one more hour with her- one walk down 5th Avenue at Christmas- she was so modest and so appreciative- and so wrong about men- learn women- meanwhile this miserable thieving woman hater sits - no conscience no attempts to right his wrongs- this was how her life ended- if I'd have been there - it would not have happened- let this be a lesson to all- be careful-=
