Our organization survives and thrives through our spirit of my mother's mom Mary Giannone. We meet many angels of earth through our service, many who become angels in heaven.
On May 24th 2016 our RPMU "Granny" Mary Zampardi flew to heaven, at 87 years old. She played the role ofour mother and grandma for the last year and a half. Mary's family are friends and volunteers of RPMU. Mary has been a huge influence in our geriatric companinion program and intergenerational programming, as she went through quite a journey with dementia and other medical condition, through homecare and healthcare centers. Mary was very respectful, witty, and compassionate even through her challenges. She is will live in our hearts forever and now be with my mamma Mary aid in RPMU's mission.
