Sending you all our sincerest condolences. Your nonna and mother was such a kind, welcoming and fun person. And that will always live on in each of you. I’m so grateful I got to know her. Although she’s at peace now and that brings some comfort it’s still so hard to lose such a beautiful part of your family. We’re thinking of the whole family during this difficult time and wish we could be there in person for you. Sending you all so much love and light.
