About Patricia Aquilante

My mother, Patricia A. Aquilante, was born on March 7, 1935 to parents John & Elsie Fox. My mother came from a large family of 8 other siblings and went on to have 9 children of her own with William G. Davis. In 1977, she divorced Bill and later married Raymond E. Aquilante.
On February 1, 2004 my mother died after a short battle with cancer. Upon her death, she left behind her husband of 25 years (Raymond Aquilante), her 9 children, many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Patricia Aquilante's Legacy

When I think of my mother, I think of her infectious laughter, her beautiful smile, her playful spirit and her kind heart. My mother had two favorite songs and a beautiful voice to go with them: "Old Rugged Cross" and "Amazing Grace." Her hobbies included bowling, poker, fishing and watching the Red Sox and N.E. Patriots.

Mom, the holidays are fast approaching and it is still very difficult without you here. I don't think christmas will ever be the same without you and that is the hardest holiday for me to get through. No matter how many years may pass, you are always going to be deeply missed. You are a big part of my heart and my love for you continues to live on. If i could have one wish for christmas, it would be that i could kiss your face one more time. Better yet, that i could tell you one more time just how much i love and appreciate you!
when you died, a part of me went with you. The only comfort i can find with your death is that when it is my time to leave this earth, i honestly believe it will be y-o-u who will take my hand and guide me. There are no words to describe the sorrow i carry in my heart, mom. I know you wouldn't want me to be sad but it hurts. It hurts a lot.

Mom, i wonder if it was you that saved my life a few weeks ago when my brake line suddenly went in the car and i was just a few feet away from getting on the highway. I had a car full of kids (your grandchildren) and had i lost the brakes on the highway, i would have had no way of stopping the vehicle short of hitting a jersey barrior or another car. Was it a miracle or just coincidence?.

I was thinking of you today, mom---that's nothing new as i'm always thinking of you. Today, however, i was remembering all the 4th of july cookouts you use to have and how much i miss those times with you. You're deeply missed mom and life has taken on a whole new meaning without you. Love brenda.

Mom:
i went to the cemetary last week and was so disappointed to see there were no flowers on your grave marker! i will bring some with me next time i head up there. I was thinking of something the other day: we always hear people refer to heaven as a place where our deceased loved ones watch over us here on earth--i'd like to think heaven is better than that! if you can see your family then that means that you are aware of any of our hurts/sorrows. And if this is true, that means that you too will feel that sorrow. Heaven is suppose to be a place where there is no pain, sorrow or suffering. I'd much rather think that you can't see your family and that you are enjoying eternal peace. You've had enough suffering in life-you deserve the eternal peace that was promised.

Mom,
well, now it's been 5 years since i've been able to give you a birthday cake. You would be 74 years old this month and yet you still seem young to me. I miss you every day, mom. You may not be here physically, but you will live on forever in my heart (and memories). I was blessed to have you as my mother and as a friend as well.

Mom,
tomorrow will be 5 years since you left us and, ironically, it is super bowl sunday. I always associate super bowl sunday with your death since you died just minutes before kick off in '04. I had wanted to bring some flowers to the cemetery but, unfortunately, a broken foot has me stuck at home. I miss so much about you but what i miss most is being able to pick up the phone and talk to you. I wish you could be here to watch ethan grow and share in that joy. I would give anything to have just one more day with you! i love you for always.

When tomorrow starts without me:  when tomorrow starts without me, and i'm not there to see; if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; i wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.   i know how much you love me, as much as i love you, and each time you think of me, i know you'll miss me too.   but when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand than an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready in heaven far above and that i'd have to leave behind all those i dearly love.   but as i turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, for all my life i'd always thought i didn't want to die.   i had so much to live for and so much yet to do, it seemed almost impossible that i was leaving you.   i thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad.   if i could relive yesterday, i thought, just for a while, i'd say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.   but then i fully realized that this could never be, for emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when i thought of worldly things that i'd miss come tomorrow, i thought of you and when i did, my heart was filled with sorrow. But when i walked through heaven's gates, i felt so much at home. When god looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden throne, he said "this is eternity and all i've promised you. Today your life on earth is past but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last and since each day's the same, there's no longing for the past. You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true, though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free. So won't you take my hand and share my life with me?" so when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart; for every time you think of me, i'm right here in your heart.

Mom,
there have been so many times i've wanted to pick up the phone and call you only to realize i can no longer do that. Losing you left an emptiness in my heart that can never be filled. People say that grief fades over time but they are wrong-though the pain may lessen, the emptiness remains ever present in our lives. We don't "get over" our grief-grief isn't an illness that can be cured with medicine or time. It is hard not having you here by my side and even harder knowing there's nothing i can do to change that. You weren't a perfect mother-there's no such thing-but you were the only mother i would have ever wanted.

Mom,
it is almost 5 years since we lost you and yet my heart grieves for you as though it was just yesterday. I miss all the little things with you which, turns out, are really the most important things: spending time with you, talking to you, touching you and simply knowing you are right beside me. You once asked me to not let you die alone--mom, i sat right beside you as you took that last breath and held onto your hand. I pray that you were aware of my presence and that you know that i did not leave you alone. When my time comes to leave this world, i pray that it is you who comes to take my hand. Love brenda.
