I will miss her with all my heart and find solace knowing she's at peace in God's Heaven, where pain and suffering do not follow. With heartfelt sympathies.

Don and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy's to all the Cedrone family. We both personally understand the deep sorrow felt with the loss of a mother. Our prayers and thoughts will be for all of you for strength to make it through this most difficult time. We both will fondly remember Philomena as " Grammy Cedrone" when we had our family gathering at Keri and Jimmy's. She will be greatly missed. Always, Rose and Donnie I WAS HERE I lived, I loved, I was here. I did, I've done, everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be. I wanna say I lived each day, until I died. The hearts that I have touched , will be the proof that I leave behind. I know that I made a difference for this world to see. I just want them to know that I gave it my all, did my best. When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets. I know I leave something for each one to remember, so they won't forget. I know I brought someone some happiness and left this world a little better just because I WAS HERE ! ♥️

Auntie Philly was always my second mother growing up and a very good friend and confidant as an adult. I will miss her sense of humor and sharpness of mind up to my last visit with her a few weeks ago. I was fortunate to have her demonstrated how to make lobster a few years ago with Theresa who had hands on while I took notes. May she enjoy all the lobster sauce in heaven her beautiful heart desires ❤️. Love and miss you Auntie Philly, Geraldine. Please say hello to Uncle Tee
