Dear Andrea, So sorry to hear of Toni's passing. She was such a selfless, sweet and caring gentlewoman. She always made time to visit our Mother. May she rest in peace.

Your mom was so thoughtful & generous. She was always looking out for my little boy & I. She was one of my favorite passengers when I drove the MGH shuttle ('99-2009). To this day my son compares every dish of meatballs & gravy to your mom's. He always reminds me....Hers Were The Best.

"Sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers."

Andrea and Family,
We will cherish the beautiful memories of sharing at 16 Sheafe St and beyond!
A true friend to Mary, Dom and all of us 9 children-- but more than that, she WAS family to us;
celebrating Holidays, Birthdays, Baptisms, Confirmations, Weddings and Reunions-- you name it, she was there, (and we have all those pictures to prove it)!!!
A woman of "Grit" and driven by unshakeable Faith, we will miss her spirit, and we're grateful she touched all our lives in a special way!
May you rest in God's Heavenly Peace, sweet Antonette.
Love and Prayers,
The Mustone Family

Andrea, I was so saddened by the news of your Mom passing. Miss Toni was such a sweet lady. Over the past few years coming up to see my mom and getting to know Toni and you has been a pleasure. I know you will surely miss her. You lovingly took daily care of and for her, now you have a sweet
Angel watching over you. God Bless, Val Scachetti 💖
