Dear cousins and families -
My thoughts and prayers are with you. There really are no words to express my sympathy deeply enough for the loss you are feeling now. I know Uncle Joe and Laurie were waiting to greet Aunt Loretta at the gate of heaven. May you find comfort in your memories, in your faith and in the knowledge of how much she is loved by everyone who knew her. God bless and comfort you all. Love - Annette

Grandma Russo was the epitome of kindness. From the minute she met me, I was welcomed into the family. No questions, no concerns, just pure happiness I was there to join everyone. Her love and devotion to family was an inspiration I hope to emulate with my own.

Mom Russo saved my life! As a young single working mom, she cared for my eldest two children. Her door was always open, especially on spaghetti night. I liken her spaghetti night to Jesus miracle of the loaves and fishes. Her love ran deep 💗
