Danny and Family,
My deepest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful mother. As I never got the chance to meet her I always felt that I had. As the way you always spoke of her I felt that I did know. She’s a beautiful lady and I know how much she will be missed. I will be here for you my friend, through this difficult time….
Lots of love and prayers,
Stephanie

My sincere and deepest condolences to the family and friends of Lucia. I was blessed to have known this wonderful woman for all but four years of my life. I remember Lucia coming over to America from Italy when I was going on five years of age. She couldn’t speak English,and I couldn’t speak Italian,but we had fun trying. Her life was not an easy one as she was controlled and had to bide her time until she was able to break out on her own. She earned her stripes the hard way. And for all that this woman has been through,I say to Lucia and her family with all of my humility, “Lo vi amo sempre”. Denny Albaugh
