Thelma Cuccinello 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Thelma Cuccinello.  She was 71 years old on 9/11/01.  What a great mother and grandmother.... she loved Christmas, her and her husband made many of the Christmas decorations that now decorate her daughters houses.  She had made quilts for all 10 of her grandchildren, I'm sure they are cherished.  She had recently taken to playing golf.  Thelma was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11.  I know how deeply she is loved and missed, 10 years later, it hurts the same. I'm so sorry you lost your mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  No one deserved this, certainly not this loving woman.  Here are some of the messages left for Thelma and her family from
Thinking of your daughters today, Thelma. My mom Mary still tears up when she speaks of you-she misses your laughter and friendship so much. And you will always be remembered. Jeanne Collins

This year I am moved and able to pay tribute...We lived just down the street from Thelma and "Cooch"...When our daughter was born, Thelma was the first non-family member to babysit while we went to an appt...Special, kind and beyond caring...Her legacy to her family. Lisa Giles, Lakeland, Florida
Thelma, you were on your way to visit your sister, Grace, who loved you so much and never was quite the same after your death. Grace passed away today, 12-24-06, at 11:45am PST. You are both with the Lord today, in Heaven. May God Bless you and your family and your generation. Trent Benedettti,
Don't think that we have forgotten, dear lady. We will never forget, and on the 9th Anniversary of that hellish day, we will say more prayers for your family, because I am sure they still miss you very much. Joyce Romano, Los Angeles, California
We have a quilt that Thelma made for my daughter Kerri when she was born on May 8, 1995. It was hanging on her bedroom wall that terrible day. She was a friend of my mother-in-law's and attended our wedding. A genuine sweetie-pie of a lady. Peace Claude Maddox, Acton, Massachusetts
Cheryl, Laurie and Maria,
My thoughts are with you, your families and your Mom. I keep warm thoughts of "Mrs. Cuccinello" with me always. My childhood memories will always be with me, these memories include your Mom who will always be my next door neighbor! Mribeth and Scott
