My Mom loved working with Ann and Joe at the fish market on Bergen Avenue and considered them both to be very dear friends for so many years. When I was growing up I always heard we are going out to dinner/dancing with the Amato's. I remember Ann always smiling, cooking and having a wonderful disposition every time I saw her. She was as sweet as sweet could be. My sincere condolences to the family and may your Mom rest in peace.

Annie was more than a friend. Both Annie and Joey were family to us. From the very first time we met, we felt as though we had always known them. They were such wonderful people and Annie was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. We love you Annie and we will miss you. Rest in peace. Our condolences and sympathy to all the family at this most difficult time.

My heart goes out to you for your loss. Anne was a wonderful person. Do you hear the bells, another angel has gotten her wings. Anne and Joe together again, resting in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely,
Debra Smith Raymond
Dear Annie, I am honored to have been part of your life and truly grateful to have had you as my mother-in-law. Thank you for giving me Gerard and your wonderful family. I will miss you. May you rest in eternal peace. Love you always, Trish
I understand that to find the true measure of a mother, one needs only to wrap the tape around her heart. My mother must have been the inspiration behind these words. AND my mother made the best darn pancakes every Saturday morning.
Annie, May the good Lord grant eternal rest to your gentle soul. I will miss your sweet voice when we talk on the phone.Rest in perfect peace. Jude.

Aunt Annie Babe, I'm gonna miss you & your wonderful laugh. I'm glad you're back with Uncle Joe again. Tell him I asked if he's alright? I would say Rest in Peace but we all know that's not possible with all those Amatos (hopefully) up there.
We will always remember the time we met Annie and Joseph at Gary and Cathys home in Warrenton, Virginia. Annie warmed up the room with her smile and sweet kindness. Joseph at first glance was a little gruff, but really was a big teddy bear. The love that Joe and Annie shared provided the foundation that will last a lifetime for their family. We were lucky to have shared some great food, wonderful wine and good times with them. Love to all, Randie and Brenda

Grandma, I selfishly assumed you would live forever because I didn‚??t want to believe in a life without you around. You were always my favorite part of coming home and i always lit up when I heard your voice greet us when we walked into your house. You were the kindest, most loving person and you made everyone around you better. You were the best and I will love and miss you forever. Love always, Sara
Sara Amato
My dear Grandma, I will miss your sweet words - you always called me dear Jennifer. I will remember you as my dear grandmother. We have so many great memories to which many were shared this weekend in celebration of you. I am also grateful that Lyla got to meet you and share in some of those memories. I will continue to tell her stories of her great grandmother (and great grandfather) throughout her life. I miss you already. I hope you said hi to grandpa for me. Love you always,
Aunt Ann was such a sweet, kind person and I'll always remember the great fun times we had going to dinner with her, Uncle Joey and the "cuzzies". She did love her wine and last night I was reminiscing with Willie and a commercial for Santa Margherita came on. I couldn't believe it! Aunt Ann you were the best and you will be missed. Love Lo the Ho
Lois DeCorso
Dear Aunt Ann: As I‚??m writing this letter you are probably at the pearly gates or having a glass of wine with your love Uncle Joey. I‚??m glad I had the chance to see you in Saint Ann‚??s. You told me ‚??You know I‚??m strong Willie but I had enough‚?? That really touched me and now you are in a safe place not feeling any pain. All thru my life you were always a special person to me. From the early days making potato salad in your apartment for the fish store and all the lovely parties and dinners we enjoyed with each other. You are on your new journey now. Lois and I are going to miss you dearly and you will always have a special place in our hearts. Love Always, Willie Babe & Lois
Willie Babe and Lois
Grandma, You used to come over to our house during Christmastime to help your friend's fish store, and still cook and clean for me and my brothers. I will always remember how you worked so hard for us, and how I didn't see it then but can see it so clearly now. Through the end, you were always looking out for us. Your kindness and dedication to your family was unending, and something I hope I can carry on. Your grandson, Joseph
Joseph Amato Jr
Grandma- You were a beautiful person inside and out. Your kindness, generosity, and love for everyone will never be forgotten. I will miss your contagious laughter and the words ‚??oh Chrissy, god bless‚?? whenever I goofed (I.e flooding the kitchen with bubbles from dish soap vs detergent). Haha. Oh yes, and how can I forget your wonderful cooking.. stuffed artichokes. Yum!! You truly are a one of a kind! I know that you‚??re reunited with grandpa and in a better place. We will miss you!! Xoxoxo.
