I just wanted to thank everyone for all of the love and support that you've sent my way regarding my Aunt Niecie.

While I'm glad that she is no longer suffering, I can't imagine what our family will be like without her. She was our rock. She was literally the coolest person I have ever met. And with only an 11 year age difference, she was the big sister I never had. Her famous tag line was "it is what it is" and in the end that's how she viewed her battle with cancer. She said last week, that she's seen everything that she wanted to see, done everything that she's wanted to do in life and was surrounded by pure love from her family and myriads of friends. She was something else. She fought harder than anything to beat it.

Her husband, my Uncle Alfonse stopped at nothing to get her the latest treatments, anything that could have possibly helped (importing drugs from Canada, alternative treatments in Arizona, Cyber knife, etc.) save her. She died in his arms on Valentine's Day. A day reserved for love.

She thought the whole ABB scene and this website were the coolest and even came to a Jello Shot Boot Camp a few years ago. She loved the Brothers and Bruce. She drove a 2007 silver Corvette and knew everything about cars from engine work to actually racing them. She made my mom stop buying me stupid elastic waisted pants when I was 11 (THANK YOU!!!!! lol!). She was everyone's biggest cheerleader. Yeah, she was the epitome of cool. And she was beautiful, both inside and out.

To my Aunt Denise Magliocco, I love you, I thank you for being so amazing and teaching me so much and giving of yourself so freely in my life. I wish you restful peace, my dear sweetie.

Thanks everyone for letting me share this. To Eddie's Rita (I miss you, sweetie!), Tyler, Keegan and anyone else out there who's in need, I'm sending love and prayers your way.

Thank you Lana and Rowland for this beautiful place.

Jacquie, It may seem like cancer is so powerful, BUT but it can't take away the love she shared with you and your family!
You are in my thoughts.
Take care.

I know exactly how you feel. I lost my aunt six months ago and our situations are astoundingly similar. My aunt was like a big sister to me and she got to live her life they way she wanted and was able to see and do a great deal in her last years. I give you all my best regards and tell you I completely understand what you are going through. Thomas Wolfe once wrote that "We are the sum of all the moments of our lives", to me this means that good and bad we are made of everything and every person who we interact with, but we are all better for knowing those who we have lost, even though we would have liked to have had them around longer.

Wow! I am so truly blessed. You all humble me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I just returned from the airport. I picked up my Aunt Denise's lifelong friend Diane who now lives in California and brought her to my aunt's house . Diane is the 2nd coolest person I ever met. She's a former drag racer, she was years ahead of her time, being a female driver. She was and still is beyond cool. When I was 16 and she was 25 I remember being out at a concert with her and my aunt. Diane didn't treat me like a kid, she spoke to me like an adult. I loved her for that. She was here last month to spend a few weeks with my aunt. What a wonderful gift that was to Niecie. They had a blast. Diane read to her and massaged her, they spent lots of quality time together, Diane brought comfort and joy to her in so many ways. Because of the time she spent with my aunt last month, Diane is now considering a career with Hospice. I think she'd be wonderful, she already has her wings.

Anyway, thanks again for all of the outpouring of love and support. On Wednesday we are driving my aunt down to pass by her beach house in Cape May before her viewing. On Thursday she will be laid to rest.

Much love to you all.

Jacquie

Jacquie, I gotta tell ya, that first post of yours was one of the, if not the, nicest coolest posts I've ever seen here.

Hugs and prayers to you.
