      She was a mother to us all… for years I would sit with her during daily morning mass as if she were my own family (and in a special way she was.) God was holding a special place for her and she is now in His loving hands, may she rest in peace. ❤️

    May she rest in peace. Such a special lady with a beautiful smile. Thinking of you Dominick and the Zingone family. Sending many prayers and much love.

    I never addressed her by her first name . Never. It was always mom. She deserved that respect because she treated me and loved me like a mom would. Like a mom should. Like her own son. She was kind, loving , caring , giving, and above all nurturing. Never once in our 33 years of marriage did she inject herself in a disagreement Mary and I would have . She would just give sound advice. And that’s what I loved about her most. Losing her , even though she lived to be 91, was a heartfelt reminder of losing Mary again. Mary’s passing was a tragedy and not a moment goes by in my life that I don’t miss her. It’s a broken heart that will never mend. But her mother’s life was a celebration. A celebration of a life well lived. They are together again. Being the mother she once was. Being the wife she once was . Being the daughter in law she once was. Forever and ever.

    With all my love,

    Ah Mrs Zingone, a Holy Trinity mom, always with a watchful eye. After I moved from NYC, on my visits home the store was always my first stop. To say hi to everyone and see Mary. Mrs Zingone always greeted me with a wonderful smile and told me Mary’s not here lol but would give her the message. Mary always got the message…man I will miss them both. RIP Mary’s Mom.
