    Mrs. Radice was a cherished friend and one of my biggest supporters. She loved her children very much and often shared with me the sacrifices she made for them as they were growing up. Throughout the years I had come to rely on her to open locked doors, set up tables or provide extra napkins for pizza days. We must have driven her crazy over the years every Pancake Tuesday popping fuses faster than she could reset them. I was looking forward to this year because I finally felt comfortable resolving the fuse issues on my own eliminating the need to constantly interrupt her. She never gave us the slightest inclination that we were pestering her. She was always ready and willing to help in any way that she could.

    My favourite memory of her goes back a couple of years to our Christmas Craft nights. I thought is would be nice for kids to have red balloons to play with and bring home with them so I purchased a few packs and was in Room 100 blowing them up with my hand pump. Mrs. Radici walked by, popped her head in to see what I was doing, and quietly left. She returned a few minutes later with an air compressor and said “Madame, this is how you do it.” She stopped what she was doing and helped me blow up the balance of the balloons. I doubt I can ever walk down a hallway in that school for years to come without remembering her.

    Mrs. Radici, may God bless you and may you continue to take care of us from heaven as you did while you where here with us on Earth.

    .May you rest in peace, Prime Miriam. For me you will always be Miriam Acame Pita, and as your only cousin I will always remember you, when I went to the grandparents’ house and spent the afternoon playing and eating Grandma Manuela’s pizza together with Susana … Happy and unforgettable years that I always carry in my memories, happy years …
    Unfortunately other facts separated us and I never heard from you again … until I received this painful news.
    I can only tell you that you will always be in my memory, like the Prima that destiny took me away … from having it close but I will never forget neither your mother, father and paternal grandparents …
    Rest in peace … with your mother, father, uncle and grandparents.

    Jorge Enrique Pita.
