Antonietta came to the United States and into my life back in 1959 when my youngest sister was born. She was a second mother to me. I can recall when on Saturdays, she would bake fresh bread for us to eat. We have shared the good times as well as the bad times together. Though we have lost a wonderful soul, heaven just received a new angel. She will be deeply missed.

Larry & I will always remember Antonia as a longtime neighbor and good friend. She was really a sweet lady and we will remember her with love and hold her "dear to our hearts!"

We spent almost 50 happy years as close friends - laughing over things, reminiscing about the past, shopping, gardening, dinners at each other's homes, watching TV together. Will miss you a lot.
