I’m sure they are all up in Heaven, with your mom and dad , Aunt Sue, Aunt Josie, My Dad, playing his accordion and they are all dancing the polka! Even though we are all far apart, we are close in our hearts . Hopefully one day we will all be together dancing the Polka! Sending hugs and love.

I was deeply saddened to learn of Cousin Rosalie's passing. Knowing how very much she missed Lenny, my 1st thought & vision was of their beautiful & love-filled reunion in heaven.
I would never think of taking a trip from CT to PA without making a stop in Stroudsburg to see The Giannetto's ~ I just loved them so much! Our families made so many wonderful & beautiful memories over the years, but the one that stands out is when all of the CT clan landed at their house in The Poconos and there were people (lots of them) sleeping all over the house & floors & in pitched tents out in the yard for our planned outing to Great Gorge! It was a weekend of nothing short of tons of laughter & fun memory-making. We all still talk about that special time, and I've no doubt that the reminiscing continues in heaven!
Rosalie's infectious smile, laughter & love of Polka music and dancing will always remain in my heart . She & Lenny's genuine love & dedication to family is their most memorable legacy they leave behind.
To cousins Tom, Karen, Steve & Marc (& families) you are all blessed to have had the best parents & teachers ever, & I am truly thankful that God made us family.
RIP Cousin Rosalie in His loving arms. You will be deeply missed, but memories of you fill my heart with so many beautiful times together!

So very sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. Will never ever forget all the fun & times shared together back in North Arlington, (& with the other Chopper), especially during the summer time in August when I'd spend a couple of weeks by your Grandma Sue (miss her so much too!) & the day your mom & dad & Dolores came to my barn & your dad was riding around on my horse! It was such a good day. She truly was so much fun to be with & just laughed together all the time. So glad to have those memories of her. Pray that the peace of the Lord will uphold & comfort all of you during this most difficult time. I know that you have many precious memories of her that you will have forever. May those memories make you smile. No doubt your mom will be greatly missed!

Our most deepest heartfelt sympathy & condolences to all of you! Love, Cousins Alice & Sisto Fea

Sending healing prayers to the Giannetto family. "Auntie" as we fondly called her was such a wonderful and caring person. I am so grateful for all of the visits we were able to have over the years. She never let us leave without feeding us something. Sitting around her table while enjoying a snack and conversation are some of my special memories. She enjoyed hearing about our travels and loved to recount all of the trips she and Uncle Lenny took over the years. While she may be gone from this earth, Auntie will always remain in my heart.
