I am Massimo Perrini the son of Teresa Barbalinardo and Girolamo Perrini, I live in Italy in Taranto. I learned this sad news from my cousin Elda Monte daughter of Carmela Barbalinardo, who put me in touch with my cousin Angela Suglio Suhar married to Jerry Suhar, whom I finally found after many years and it was beautiful. Unfortunately, these deaths of Aunt Maria Teresa and Uncle Domenico have embittered us very much together with my brother Francesco, my wife Paola Bettini, my daughter Barbara, my granddaughter Giulia and her husband Massimo Esposito and all of us together address our thoughts of closeness to all of you. , our dear distant relatives.

Dear Cathy and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
Having grown up around the corner from Domenic and Teresa after meeting Nick when I was 4 years old (in 1966), I was privileged to have known them and their generosity first hand. They will both be missed.
Hello Cathy and family,
I am so sorry to hear about your losses. We will be praying for you all in this very difficult time.
Our deepest condolences to the entire family.
Nick – growing up, your parents always made me feel welcome in their home. I’ll never forget your mother’s giggle whenever she said my name and your dad’s mischievous smirk when he first offered me a glass of his homemade wine.
They were both wonderful people. May they both rest in peace together and may happy memories fill your hearts.
Sincerest condolences for the loss of uncle Domenic. He was a gentle soul. He will protect you all from heaven.
Fond remembrance and thanks for his and his beloved wife’s raising of an upstanding son whose friendship and family we hold dear.
