Mom grew up in Allentown Pa. born to two loving parents Atilio and Anna Eppolite. She attended Central Catholic High School. Mom was a fantastic ice skatershe was one step away from being accepted into the Ice Capades she gave it up for a boy she was dating but never heard her say she had any regrets.

Mom loved life and the center of her life was her children Michelle, Sam Jr., Regina and Marc and also her many grandchildren. I can remember a time when we were growing up she had to be in four places at one time and never complained. Between ball, cheering or hanging with friends she always made sure we made it on time. She loved to dance and knew every dance to every song out there.

There wasn’t a time growing up that I remembered that she wouldn’t go to bat for us children whether it was right or wrong she was always by our side, but don’t let that fool you she ruled with a firm hand and a big heart. Anyone that knew her knew she would do without just to help others.

We miss her everyday plus phone calls, she would call us three to four times a day just to see how we were doing, and you can bet on any given Sunday if your football team was playing the Washington Redskins you would be the first to be called.

The love of Tweedy Bird was her first and only tattoo after the age of 50. She loved showing it off and she would lift her leg up to show all which would make us all laugh.

We miss you Mom, Fly high, dance and Love.
