Adrianna - Toms River
I am writing this shout out about my mom, Fran Sessa. I do not know anyone in this world who is more deserving then her. She is the glue that keeps our family going. My parent's own their own business so most days she'll be in work at 4am leave at 4pm then babysit her grandkids or be taking them somewhere. When I had my twins at 24 weeks she would drive from Metuchen everyday pick me up in toms river and then take me to jersey shore hospital to visit them. When they got out of the hospital she would constantly leave work and go to their dr. Appts. With me. That's honestly only half of what she does for my family. Anytime of day or night my brother's and I can go to her. My parents work so unbelievably hard and deserve this so much. They have not been on vacation in over 10 years. They never do anything for themselves so please help me do something for them. Please pick my mom! You will not regret it!
Gary - Forked River
Happy mother's day mom....Hope your day is great and I really miss you...Come and see us soon..love you bunches!!!!!
Natali - Lanoka Harbor
My mom isn't the most amazing human being alive! She basically raised 4 kids on her own and did the most phenomenal job with all of us! Not only is she my mom but shes my best friend! She does everything for everyone else and deserves to be recognized! I love you Mom!
Rachael - Manalapan
Hi 94.3. Crew I am writing to nominate my mom for day of pampering. My mom does it all for everyone, best way to describe her. She goes above and beyond for her family and friends if someone needs help she doesn't care what she is doing or how she is feeling she drops everything and does what she can for the person in need. She also cooks for us anytime we ask even if its in the middle of the night. Not lying its the kind of mom she is, if her child needs something she will do it. When my sister went through her 2 major surgeries she tended to her 24 7 to make sure she was comfortable and healing properly. She had to put everything else on hold for 3 yrs until she was ok enough to go back to school. She puts her own needs aside. She is going through health problems now unfortunately, her legs are getting weaker and weaker and yet she schlepps around taking us to doctors, surprising us with flowers in our car, or lunch at school. She really really deserves it. I really hope you choose her. One more thing to show my moms personality and good heart, my sister asked her "if she had one wish what would it be" she didn't responds, a new car, a vacation, she said "that all my friends and fmailies wishes come true, because that is my wish that is what i live for" she is amazing this my mommy. Please consider her for this contest. Besides she loves wine;) Thank you.
Angela - Neptune City
My mother Patricia Lora is the bomb because she raised 4 children by herself. There were times she worked 2 or 3 jobs to provide for us. Today she is there whenever anyone needs her. She has taught us so much and still continues. She is beautiful inside and out, still at 60 years of age works her butt off.
Kinza - South Orange
She encouraged me to follow my dreams and not give up.
James - Staten Island
My mom is the best! She raised me as a single mom while working hard in nursing school. When she graduated from school she worked the night shift at her hospital so she could spend time with me during the day. She's always worked this hard to support me and my two younger siblings. She could really use a relaxing stay at the Inn at such a beautiful winery!! Please pick her!!!
Alexa - Madison
To my mom, my best friend, super woman and the greatest woman I know!! You amaze me every day how you selflessness and love for everyone around you. You are our Queen Christine and me and your two boys love you so deeply!!
Brianna - Brick
Not only is my mom the most caring and selfless to her two daughters and anyone who calls her family, but also to anyone who is lucky enough to call her friend. She drops everything to help her loved ones and deserves be world in return. I'm about go abroad to Medical school and it being the last Mother's Day I'll get to spend with her for a while, I would love the chance to make it extra special.
Alexa - Staten Island
I want to thank you for all your support and being my biggest cheerleader. You're not only a great mom but a great nurse who is always helping everyone. I love you mom you're the best!
Danielle - Neptune City
Mom I love you. I know we fight and get stressed lately since I'm getting married soon but you are the greatest! I don't always show it or say it but I wouldn't want anyone women to be my mom.
Kathryn - Manalapan
Happy Mother's Day, mom! Thanks for being the best role model and friend one could ask for. I love you!
Debbie - Farmingdale
My mother is the most selfless person I know. She has put her kids first with everything. I know people say this about their mother all the time but this is true with mine because she is actually homeless right now because long story short she put her children first! She is the most hard working, caring, kind-hearted person and will give you the shirt off of her back if you needed it. She will go broke and spend all of her money just to make her kids happy. I am 34 years old and she has done this throughout mine and my siblings entire life. Even though she has nothing she still is there for us mentally, emotionally, physically and sometimes financially. She loves us with all her heart.
David - Keyport
I want to say how much I miss you. You are only gone from this world 11 months. You did so much for all of us while growing up. You took care of 7 us kids, and you never ever complained to us. You always did for us and some how when money was tight you always found a way to get what ever we wanted as kids. You always did for us no matter what. You are truly missed by all of us and wish you were still here. You will never be forgotten. A day never goes buy that you are not in our thoughts. We Love you, happy mother's day in heaven. Love all of your kids for ever.
Brittany - Bayonne
I never realized how much my mom did for my whole family until I had a kid of my own. As a mother of 3 she worked full time and still managed to come to all of our plays, sports games and everything in between. Mom you are one of the most caring, thoughtful, and wonderful human beings I have ever known. I strive every day to be half the mom you are. Thank you for everything. I love you so much.
Alissa - Toms River
Ever since I was a little girl you have always been there for me through the best of times through the worst of times. Especially last year when I probably needed you more than ever you were there. I was going through a rough time in my life and although it got frustrating you always talked to me and let me know that everything will be alright. You were right by my side. Because of you I have so much in my life and I am grateful for the bond that we have. I can tell you anything and you will always be honest with me. We have so many laughs, tears, arguments, and great times. I am so proud of you for taking such a huge step last month to getting yourself healthy. You deserve this! Thank you for always being there for me and everything you do. I love you so much! Happy Mothers Day!
Tierra - Hazlet
Thanks to my mom for giving her kids the best life they could have. For coming from a tough situation and raising us practically on her own in order to keep us happy and healthy. I wouldn't ask for a more caring, tough-loving, and wonderful mom.
Danica - Long Branch
I knew I had the coolest mom right from the womb - when she took me to my "first" concert just a few months before giving birth (front row at the Rolling Stones, 1989)
She's raised three strong, beautiful, independent, successful, intelligent, and kind daughters who even in young adulthood still turn to her for unconditional love, support, and sound advice. More than that, she was the mom our friends could always turn to and confide in while growing up - an important role that she still holds today.
And whether I asked for it or not, I needed her more than ever this past year after going through cancer treatment. She was there for every moment - the good and the bad - leading up to my final clean bill of health in April 2018. Our bond's even more powerful now, and there's no possible way I could truly express all the gratitude and appreciation I hold for this very special person in my life. But some pampering at our favorite winery would help! Love ya Momma B!
Kim - Point Pleasant
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, Marilyn Russell. Her contagious laugh, warm hugs and loving heart have molded me into the Mom I became 12 years ago. I love you, Mom for being my Best Friend

Hayley - Oakhurst
To the one and only Dina Blackwood, I love you girl. Not only are you my mom, you're my absolute best friend. Thanks for never leaving me in the grocery store as a child, I am sure it was very tempting. You are such a bad-a** biker mom and how you managed to raise us TRIPLETS is beyond me... and then opened your arms to two teenage step daughters just solidifies your amazing character. I love you to the moon and back. I hope you get this winery trip cause Lord knows you can out-drink all of your children combined! (Stop being so cool, you're making me look bad.)
Kate - Union Beach
Happy Mother's Day to my mom who is always there for me and my family at a moment's notice. Thanks for being a crazy fun Nana and amazing source of strength throughout my life.
Brett - Metuchen
The mother of my children is amazing. She put her career on hold to better their quality of life. She now works her job to make money for them to persue their dreams in College. THE BEST!
Jen - Bayville
I want to thank my mom for giving us what we wanted while she did without things for herself. She taught me so many life lessons and is always there to listen. She is now a Grandma and she finally can enjoy something for herself. Love you Fran. From your daughter Jen
Gina - Wall
If anyone Deserves a day of pampering its my mother Kelly for a long time I was in a dark place and my mother stood by my side and dealt with all my pain, all my anger and all my sadness it really took a toll on her seeing me the way I was but no matter what she never gave up on me she stuck by me 100 percent and never gave up no matter what it did to her, shes my angel she saved my life and for that Im forever grateful so I think if anyone deserves it its def her.
Mary, Robert, Victor and Johnny - Bayville
Mami, Thank you for being a father and mother to us. Sorry for all the grey hairs we gave you just know that my siblings and I enjoy reminiscing our childhood thanks to you. Words can not express to gratitude, admiration and love we have for you. We adore you!
Sam - Brick
If anyone deserve a day of pampering, it is definitely my mother.
Have you ever met someone who is so selfless, so understanding, and so full of life that it inspires you to be a better person? I am lucky enough to have an inspiration like that in my mother.
My mom has a heart so big, that it spans beyond our immediate family unit, touching many, many others. At at a time when my parents should have been getting ready to plan for an empty nest, for example, my cousin’s family was affected by Hurricane Sandy, leaving him as a teenager without a home. So, without a moment's hesitation or second thought, my mom (and dad) took on a teenager and loved him as their own. Now in college, my cousin still calls their house home, and my brothers and I have another brother to love with all of our heart. Because of her big heart, all of ours grew too. This is just one story of very many that shows how selfless and loving my mother is- and how deserving she is of a day of pampering.
Valerie - Freehold
This is the first time I am admitting this publicly: Two years ago I had plans to commit suicide and my mother was the one who saw the warning signs and got me help. Now I am graduating high school and going to college and lead a happy and healthy life. Without my mom I would not be here today. She was also recently disabled and unable to work due to an autoimmune disease. She battles Lupus while managing three children and a household, not to mention saved my life. I love her more than all the stars in the sky. Thank you for your consideration.
Noreen - Point Pleasant
This Mother's Day is a very special one for my mom, Rosaleen Maloney. Not only is she the best mom and grandmother on the planet, she is a living miracle. In February she had complications during a cardiac procedure in which she coded during the operation and nearly bled out. They were able to revive her by performing emergency open heart surgery to find and repair the bleeding. They feared she suffered brain damage due to the length of time they performed CPR while getting her hooked up to the heart and lung machine, but miraculously she did not. Ten days after this traumatic event, she underwent a second open heart surgery, a "re-op", in NYC. She spent three weeks in the hospital during the month of February, missing the opportunity to celebrate her 80th birthday. She still has a long road ahead of her, but the road behind her is even longer. She is finally turning the corner with her recovery and is so deserving of being pampered and celebrated this Mother's Day. I don't know what I did in this life to deserve such an amazing mother and friend. I am so grateful to be able to spend another Mother's Day with her. She's simply the best!
Diana - Brick
Mom: the woman who gave endured labor pain to bring you into this world, and then make every effort to ensure that you have not only the life sustaining items to survive but, also the skills to navigate it as best as you can all the while letting you know that someone undoubted will love you no matter what.
While most people can say with confidence that their mom fits that description I feel that my mother, Deborah fits it like no other. She has taken this role on not only with her children but, also her grandchildren when needed and now her own mother who suffers from dementia. Because life comes full circle and even moms need a mom once again.
I could go endlessly into the details of how she is the rock of the family and how she supports everyone in making sure that everything within her power is taken care, she remembers every little thing that we all like, she plans special occasions for us to enjoy, she provides her mother with daily care, she drives grandchildren to practices, etc.......
The bottom line is that she cares and loves like no other and with every ounce of energy she has available to her and for that I am supremely thankful to call her my Mom.
Michelle - Eatontown
I'm sharing a poem that she's getting for Mother's Day that begins to outline all the awesome things she's done for our family. She helped my sister through a difficult divorce and opened her home to my nephews - even creating a bedroom for them to have their own space overnight, as my sister worked a restaurant job to support her family. Even now, as they are older she continues to compromise her personal time to not only help her daughters but also all 3 of her grandsons!
Packing our lunch boxes and blowing our nose
Taking us shopping and buying us clothes.
High school years came and so did the boys
You sat and you listened.. through sorrows and joys
The next step was college and moving away
There’s always been so much I’ve wanted to say…
As our marriages blossomed, or… started to fail,
You offered support and shared your own tale.
When grandbabies came and brought joy to our days
You helped us all out in so many ways
You diapered and snuggled all over again
You sang silly songs and counted to ten
You opened your home and filled up your time
You jumped when we called and turned on a dime
You retired from work, so that time was your own
With big plans to relax, now that we’re grown.
You could focus on you and spend time with your friends
But, for a Mom & a GrandMom, the work never ends
You’ve always been there for us, stood by our side
You’ve been our mother, our mentor, our guide
Life changes so quickly, and as time passes by…
We have grown closer, these reasons are why
You mean so much more than you’ll ever know
It’s hard to find words, to let my love show.
So, let me say thank you for all that you do
I love you a ton and admire you too.
Joyce - Howell
Thank you mom for being not only a single mom who gave all three of your children the last penny in your wallet every day, but also for being my best friend! You stood by me when I went through my years of cancer and surgeries, and 3 years later I stood by you when you went through it. You have taught me how to be the mom I am today, and I hope I have passed it down to my sons. Being a mom, you make mistakes, which you learn from, making you a better mom! Thank you for being a mom and dad to us, and doing it unselfishly, working as many as 3 jobs at one time, and working hours on end through long nights. If there were a million women lined up waiting to be chosen, my choice would be you. I love you to the moon and back, and so very much more! Happy Mother's Day Mom, and and also from the 8 that call you Nana!
Michele - Freehold
My Mom, Patricia Kaes, is the most kind, giving and loving person you will ever meet. You need volunteers to get something done, Pat Kaes will be there. You need a meal for someone, Pat Kaes will cook it. You need help planning an event, Pat Kaes will give her time. Please consider surprising this wonderful person with a day at the winery. You wont regret it! Thanks.
Laura - Point Pleasant Beach
I want to give a huge shout out to my Mom Gayle Lee on Mothers Day. You have had a tough year with health. You have never complained about not feeling well. You are still always there for me and my family when we need you. Even if you aren't having a good day. No matter what time of day or whatever you are busy with, you are there. You amaze me. You give me and the family unconditional love without wavering. I am so proud and blessed to call you my Mom. Thank you for being mine. I adore you! May God bless you. Happy Mothers day Mom! You are the best!
Lindsey - Port Monmouth
Thanks for dealing with my annoying self! Youre the best mom anyone could ask for. Love you so much!
Brittany - Brick
Happy Mother's Day to the most beautiful, strong, independent, and loving women that I have the honor of calling her mom and her grand kids are blessed to call grandma. I can't even put onto words how lucky my siblings and I are to have her. She is a pure-hearted and accepting person. She has helped us through so much in our lives especially nowadays. We are currently going through a rough time with our dad leaving us, us loosing our house, and not being able to afford another house. Even through all this, she remains extremely strong and is always smiling. She works her butt off to provide for us and give us everything she can. She works crazy hours and truly deserves a nice break (and not just the 30 minute one she gets in between her 12 hour shifts 6 days a week). We love you so much Mom/Grandma!! Thank you for being our "wonder women".
Kelly - Wall
This is a special shout out to my mom, who one year ago this month suffered a horrible fall. After surgery and many treatments, she now has to face life in a wheel chair. I know she feels like she is a burden to us but nothing is farther from the truth. Mom, we love you and we are always here for you just as you are always there for us.
Amanda - Neptune City
I want to give a big Mother's Day shout out the most amazing woman to walk the face of the Earth! My mom is the most selfless, loving, and beautiful mom there is! She is a mom, a step mom, a teacher, and many of my friends see her as their "second mom." She has taught me how to be strong, never give up, and always persevere no matter what the situation may be! My mom absolutely deserve to be pampered after all she does for me, her students, and our community. Keep changing the world with your bright blue eyes and positive attitude! I love you to the moon and back, Mommy! Happy Mother's Day!
Lisa - Wall
A special shout out to my mom aka Fafa to her 6 grandchildren. She does everything for everyone and could really use a break. She has the biggest heart and has always went without so that we could have what we needed. She is truly one of a kind and has always been there for us though thick and thin. And is also a great cook. She is the best and deserves the best.
Dennis - Colonia
Even though I just lost you a few weeks ago my mother was one of the few people that was a remarkable woman who lived by herself for thirty one years and passed at the age of 98 one week sort of 99 you will be missed and forever in our hearts. Happy mothers day Your son Dennis
Kristen - Red Bank
This Mother's Day is one of the most important I have had with my mother. Because as I write this, I am sitting with her while she gets chemo. Not knowing the future, she wakes up each day looking at the positives of everything and anything. This year has been tough on her, but from looking at her you would never know that. She has always been inspirational to me and given me unconditional love, but she has shown me amazing strength as she keeps fighting through everything. I'm proud that she's my mom. And she really embodies that saying, "though she be little, she is fierce." She will continue to be my life role model of how to live a full, enriched life throughout challenges, on Mother's Day, and every day!
Michelle - Manchester
Shout out to the best mom out there. You were there when I took on raising the 3 kids by myself. You were there when Julian was born and went to the hospital everyday for 6 weeks while he stayed in the Nicu unit. You went in shifts with me so one of us was always there. You help watch the kids while I uber so I can make enough to take care of the kids. When the baby isnt doing well or just has an appointment you make sure to come with me to see his 10 doctors every month. You are always there for me and the kids and we love you and are forever grateful for everything you do! You are the most amazing mother and grandmother ever! We love you!
Remi - Tinton Falls
