Philomena was a strong and brave young woman. She has fought all her life and has gone through a lot, fighting her pain, but never once cried help. She survived for twenty eight years, that's why she passed so bravely. Her pain was numb, but she still lived a happy life. Nothing stopped her from persuing her education, her career, or the loves of her life. A hero she is, yes, a hero she'll always be, in our hearts and in our memory. She will never be forgotten. We love you, Nuccia.

Ti abbiamo atteso tanto, sei arrivata con tanta voglia di vivere, ti abbiamo accolta tra le nostre braccia come una rosa che e' appena sbocciata, guarda caso sei nata nel mese delle rose, MAGGIO. Sei stata grande, ci hai toccate tutti come un raggio di sole, sei stata forte e brava, quando tu soffrivi, noi soffrivamo con te.
Sarai con noi per sempre, nei nostri cuori.
Ti vogliamo tanto bene, per sempre.........

I do not have many friends that I have kept in touch with throughout the years but we always found a way to remain friends. 15 years is a long time to be a part of someone's life. I was blessed to be a part of yours. If I could choose one word to describe you, only one word comes to mind: IRREPLACEABLE. Thank you for being a true friend and for all the wonderful memories. I will never forget you. I love you.

Dearest Nuccia,
I will always keep you in my heart, always near my thoughts, you will always be the little sister that I never had. Growing up, you were always there, cute as a button and always smiling. How I loved to see you grow up, knowing that there was always a warm smile and a hug any time I saw you.
I wish that I could hug you one more time and tell you how much I loved you, but I can't, and that's what hurts the most.
I will always, always love you Nu, my little sister..
