I was so sorry to hear of Angela's passing. She was my first cousin (I'm Vincent's daughter) and I have many fond memories of her.
May God bless you and your family at this time.

Meeting and marrying Michaela introduced me to a truly wonderful family. Michaela, Louise, Carmela and just recently Albert have all passed away. Angela was the last one left of a terrific family. Now that she is gone, for me it is like the end of a cycle. A part of my life has now ended. I will cherish the memories I have of the Garofalo family. There off spring, the Alsings, the Oneill's, the Freetly's and the Saccio's will live on. They are a terrific bunch. Michaela, Louise, Carmela and Angela should be very proud. Rest in Pease Angela.
