Gino, I'm so deeply sorry for your loss. Maria was a beautiful woman, caring mother and wonderful wife. I loved having her as my next door neighbor in Rosedale growing up for all those years. Then when she married you and had Salvatore. I have such great memories of those day. Joe and Louisa downstairs and you and Maria living upstairs. Her beautiful face and smile will never be forgotten. I'm so very sorry that you are going through this.... Victoria Trentacosta Marullo (rosedale ny)

Maria was one good person, with good heart and always funny and positive. Always had a sense of humor and full of joy and optimism. I always remember the good times when me and Gino used to play soccer and Maria would watch us play and also go to soccer party event and have a good time and laugh. Maria you will be missed and our deepest sympathy and condolences to family Astuto.

Gino & Melissa,

I still cannot believe that Maria will not be coming into the store with her boisterous laugh and big smile. She was a stranger to no one and loved by so many. Maria will be missed and remembered by more people than you know.

My wish is that your memories of her will be a comfort in the days ahead.

God bless you and your entire family.

Affectionately,
Connie ~

Maria, I can not believe you are really gone, I know we did not get to spend enough time together, but the time we did spend together will be forever cherished.
I will never forget the first night we met, I put you in my contacts as "Maria sexy Black Dress" that's how I will remember you

Maria was an amazing woman and brought joy and comfort to who ever she met. She will be missed greatly. Lane Bryant will never be the same without her uplifting spirit filling the room. She helped me through a few heavy challenges in my life. Even though her life was cut short I know she's up in heaven making everyone smile.

Gino,

I am so very sorry of your wife's passing. We have both suffered a terrible loss. Maria was such a sweet and caring person and I was very proud to call her my friend. She was a friend to me in so many ways and I always enjoyed every moment I was able to spend with her. Maria and I met at work in 2009 and I was awestruck by how deeply caring she was for people. Maria truly would put others first before herself everyday. She touched my entire family. My kids adored her and were so appreciative of the times they were able to spend with Maria.

Our faith is certainly tested at times like this. I know it is difficult for us to understand a loss like this, but we need to be mindful of the true blessing that she was to us. That should give us the strength to continue on in faith knowing that she would want us to honor her memory in this way.

I pray that God's choicest blessings will be bestowed on you and your wonderful family. May God grant you the peace and strength to carry on in faith.

God Bless,
In Faith & Love,
Gracie Norman & Family.

Time it seems has no relationship to the impact one can have upon others. You touched our hearts and lives in the most unexpected ways. We are grateful to have known you and grieve for the fun times we will not have together. Rest peacefully our dear friend.
