    This is my mother in law. I just would like to say it was such a blessing to be involved with the Furia family. You were a wonderful mother in law who will be missed. Thank you for the beautiful memories living in the Bronx. I always loved your sauce with the green pepper in it. I’ll never forget the cakes from Sal and Dom’s Bakery. I’ll never forget the fresh ham you used to make all the time from Arthur Ave. It was delicious. I love you Gussie. RIP

    I love you, mom, and don’t know how I’m going to make it through without seeing you each day. At the end I wanted you to be comfortable, but selfishly I didn’t want to let you go. I will miss ordering food from QVC and eating it with you. My kids will miss you so much. Thanks for being so good to them and to me. You were a great mother and grandma. Thanks for everything you’ve done for us. Be happy in heaven seeing daddy again and your brothers and parents. My heart is broken going on without you. I wish you could have been with us forever. Love you mom. Suzanne Augusta Furia

    Mom I can’t believe you’re gone. My heart is so broken. Your main concern in life was your three children and all the prayers you said for us every day. I want to thank you for everything you did. I will always love you, remember you and miss you. Please talk to me from heaven and Rest In Peace with Dad 😔😢
