My best friend I have know you for over 35 years from working with you at Sklar Peppler . You were a wonderful lady, we had many conversations and you were very helpful to me. When you started to get sick I was there once a week to spend a little time with you. I will miss you and the times we had together. My love Ottavia Siciliano

Our daughter Rachel Lockwood Lorusso met Fabio (grandparents our neighbour) in 1996, and also his best friend Dave Spena.
Rachel would watch tv with the boys on the weekend and Mrs. Spena would wake them up
around 10’pm amd say
“ walk Rache home as it’s late now .”
She enjoyed times at the Spena cottage making pizza and growing their friendships.
A lifetime of cherished memories together.❤️

To Zio Frank, Saveria, Silvio, Dave and families,

We were so saddened to hear of Zia Antonietta's passing. She was and continues to be a beautiful soul who will always be remembered in the fondest of ways. She welcomed you with the warmest kisses and hugs. She will be remembered for the love she showed others as well as her love of cooking and baking. She was also great at sewing as I remember her making both my sister and I purses that she made 30 plus years ago of which i still have to this day.
An angel has left this earth but her spirit will continue to guide you.

Much love,
Lisa Stancato, Todd, Jonah and Eli
