My mom and I send our love and prayers to you Gabriella, Valentina, Nicoletta, Tony, Mary and the entire family. My mom is so grateful to have had Santina in her life for so many years. Santina always took special care of my mom; she was a gift to my mom’s life, and my mom felt part of your lives as she watched you kids grow up and mature into beautiful, talented young women. Santina fought a noble battle, and I never saw her without a smile on her face when we walked into the salon...and she always put a smile on mine. May the wonderful memories outweigh your sadness. We both will miss her very much.

Dear Tony and family,
We are so sorry to read off the passing of your beautiful wife. I don’t believe we met her but reading what others have written and knowing your kind and generous heart, I do believe she was an Angel to many. Your kindness to our grandsons and other children with disabilities holds a top place in my heart. So, dear friend, our prayers and love.
