“Mom- I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS….I turned out Perfectly!! XOXO-Kate”
From the Children of Hannie Koss:
“Some may know mother in-law jokes, but I am here as a daughter in-law to share that MY MOTHER in-law has been a gift in my life. When I was younger she accepted me in her family with no hesitation and lots of love. When I became a mother she celebrated my successes and validated my fears. She stepped in when I asked and cautiously stepped away when she knew we needed to figure it out. She prefers to be the background and so the only discomfort I have with her is getting her to know how much she deserves the cheers and spotlight that only a lifetime of giving deserves.
Her love is fierce and when she is in – she is all in. We often talk about a mother bear’s protective love. Being able to marry into her den of cubs and then raise mine under her protective shadow has been one of my life gifts. So, today, when we can not gather round to bear hug her- to show her all the same loyal love she has bestowed on us – it is my pleasure to share publicly how much Hannie Koss means to me and our family. Happy Mother’s Day to our Momma Bear Koss.
Love, Bonnie. xoooooo”
“Happy Mother’s Day to our most loved and wonderful mother and grandmother! We miss you and love you to the universe and back! We can’t wait to see you when it is once again safe to give you kisses. All our love- Seth and the family”
From the Koss grandchildren:
Hi grandma I wanted to let you know how much I love you and miss you everyday! You have helped me so much in life and I owe it all to you. I will never forget those times when you helped me with homework and helped school me!!! I appreciate it all and I love you so so so much. You have taught me that no matter what to always get back up and push through. You are the person that reminds me to be the best I can possibly be. You are the person that makes me want to always do my best no matter how hard it is. You are the person that inspires me!!! I will never forget those times when I would sleep over and Wyatt would wake me up and you and I would give him a morning walk. I will never forget the times we baked cookies and you would let me play with play-doh. And I will never forget the times we would do puzzles and you would show me how to do crosswords. So grandma I want to thank you and tell you those memories will stay with me forever and I love you to the moon and back!!!
Love Eli ❤️
Happy Grandma’s Day!!! You have been such a constant joy in my life and your quick wit has never failed to make me laugh. I love you and appreciate you more than words can express. From our shared love of random theatre knowledge to all the cherished moments we have spent with each other, I couldn’t be more grateful to have you as my Grandma.
Love and miss you,
Happy Grandma’s Day! I love you and miss you a lot. Looking forward to seeing you soon hopefully. Have a wonderful day, you deserve it! Love you to the edge of the ever expanding universe and back!
To our super mom/grandma whose has always had an endless supply of love, concern, patience and waffles – happy mother’s day! We love you and can’t wait for this to be over so we can see you soon (and have more waffles). Love, Shane, Dada and Morten
Hi Grandma! I just wanted to thank you for everything that you have done for me. Whenever I talk to you or hear from you I leave the conversation with a huge smile and in a very happy mood. You have always been a very strong and inspiring woman in my life and I hope to be an incredible mother and grandmother just like you have shown me. I love you to the moon and back and hope that you have the best mother’s day! See you soon and stay healthy 💜! Love, Selia
From Lori Weinstock:
“My mother, though no longer with us is my super hero because she taught me by her example to get up every day and bring your best to the world and always with a smile. Complaining or making excuses was a no-no growing up and it is in my home now as well. That is because of her example. She was loving, nurturing and worked her tushy off. In honor of her I will make our second donation to the super hero fund! This will be our first year without my mom and we miss her beyond what we can adequately express. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the amazing moms! “
From Julie Manone:
“My donation is in honor of my amazing mother Carol Glantz. The most supportive and loving mom a girl could ever want! I love and miss you so much! Xoxo”
From Deborah Radis:
“To our superhero Carol Glantz.. You are truly an inspiration as a mother and grandmother. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. Your kindness, generosity, and compassion make you the special person that you are. We love you unconditionally, to the moon and back forever and always.”

From Adria and Franklin Saia:
To My Bonus Super Mom/Grandma, Francis Kraft:
“You didn’t have to be there for me, to nurture me, to give me advice when I was lost, to comfort me when I was nervous, or even to show me that you care. You didn’t have to do all of those things, but you did, and do, ALL THE TIME.
I truly don’t know where I would be without you. You have helped me become the successful person, husband, parent, and friend I never thought I could be before I met you.
Thank you for loving me and my family as your own.”
Your bonus son, Frank, bonus daughter-in-law, Adria & bonus grandchildren, Jack & Paige
