Our deepest condolences to the Giansanti/Romano families. To my cousins on the Romano side, and the Giansanti side you are all the salt of the earth. Family always meant feeling and giving love unselfishly. As the circle of life , laid down on its side looks like a spiral Never ending ! We endure such heart felt loss, but we must be thankful of the time spent together and cherish every moment. Cousin Lonnie was truly a blessing to everyone in her life and ours. ❤️ She will be dearly missed and never forgotten. Some day we will all be together again in heaven. May you Rest In Peace till we meet again. 🙏🏻❤️ Amen

My deepest condolences to all of you... Al, Patti, Alana, and Michael... I will always treasure those times in my teen years when we all hung out at the Giansanti or Pescatello households... such great memories. I do recall our mothers comparing sauce recipes... there was even a dinner featuring both, and both were delicious! It makes me smile to think back on the two of them... I think there was a bit of competition going on! Your mom was always welcoming whenever I came for a visit... she and your dad were wonderful... again... I am so very sorry for your loss...
Sending love and prayers,
