My deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Spataro. Our families lived on the same street and I walked to grade school with Rosa and her cousin Sam. Remembering the days being in the Spataro basement eating spaghetti with Rosa and her mom and dad, who always treated me like family.
Thanks you for the wonderful childhood memories.

My deepest sympathy to Commare Carmella and family for the passing of this wonderful man. Gerlando and Carmella are my godparents. We shared great memories during their stay in Val d’Or. I am the daughter of Attilio & Rosa Misiano.

Our thoughts are with you all in this difficult time.

Maria and family.. Pasqualina Angelo e Samuel 🥰
