My deepest heartfelt condolence to the Virgilio family. Your mom was a beautiful woman inside and out and I remember her... like it was yesterday walking along the streets of the North End with an amazing smile on her face. May she rest in eternal peace with Jesus and her loved ones and I assure you we will all be in paradise together someday.

We lived across the hall from each other for 20 years. I always helped her when she called me. I know how much pain she was in all the time.

Now, she can be with Jesus with no pain.
