Zia Caterina and the entire Milazzo family. We wish you all the great strength to get you through these tough times. One consolation is the lovely memories we have of Zio Joe. Remembering our weekly trips to Wasaga Beach, the holiday get togethers, and the gardening tips Zio used to give Enzo when we picked Maria up from the loving care you and Zio provided her. Know that you are in our hearts.
Love Enzo, Mina, Maria, Frank, Krissia, Cassandra and Gabriel.
Our condolences to the family. I have fond childhood memories of Joe when our families would get together. Always a gentleman.
Cara Zia Caterina, Joe, Nino and Maryann
Your father was a special man…always there for everyone and always knew the right thing to say. I miss his heartfelt smile, his love of cars and music and our great barbecues at Wasaga Beach after literally racing each other up Airport Road.
Great memories ❤️
Buon riposo Caro Zio.
Cristina, Rocco, Peter, Frank, Alex and family
Dear Zio Peppino, you have suffered a lot and now you have finally found peace. We will miss you so much and will never stop thinking about you. We will often think of your cheerfulness and your desire to joke. In particular, I will always remember you as the playful uncle who got angry when I called him “Zu” Pippinu. Everyone will miss you so much, your family and in particular Zia Caterina. She has always been close to you with so much love, like an angel and suffered not being able to see you during the pandemic… because unfortunately, in your suffering, you also had to experience the loneliness of the pandemic. You will always have a special place in your brother Natale’s heart.
In this sad time, we are close with our thought to Zia Caterina, Joe, Nino, MaryAnn and family
Maria Francesca, Giuseppe, Natale e Maria
