Auntie will always be in my heart. She was a very special aunt who always showed concern for everyone. I loved to joke with her and we would have a lot of laughs together. My dad always looked forward to her calls and support daily and I will never forget her. She is at peace with family. Amen

Roseanne please accept my condolences in the loss of your mother, she was a lovely woman and a true lady, I so vividly remember shopping in RI and running into your mom and Hilda. What a twosome! I am sure she has met up with my Aunt Eleanor and formed a knitting circle. Emily Jean

We are so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I always thought of her as one of my "Landi aunts" and of course Maria and her family knew her and you a lifetime.
Maria and I are out of town in Florida, but we wanted to express our condolences to you and your family and also to my Landi cousins, Amelia, Domenic, Vivian and Beverly.
With all our respects.
Larry and Maria Mancini
