Me being a guy, I probably talked to Mr. Romano more than Mrs. Romano. The memory I have in my mind is of my wife and Mrs. Romano talking, looking at each other smiling and enjoying each other’s company. That is the image I will always have. She was a very kind woman. I’m sorry for your loss.

Love,
Dan Deskin

She was a wonderful person who I enjoyed being around and loved talking to. She always had such amazing stories to tell you. I will surely miss her. My heart goes out to her family during this terrible time.

With Love,
