Dear Varone Family,
It is with our deepest condolences and sympathy from our broken hearts to you all. Maria was a very important neighbour to us with love and support from her always. She never forgot us at Xmas and over the years would come across the street and say " don't cook tonight, I have ordered pizza for you" the last time she did that was January 6th 2021! We invited her to stay and eat with us, but she said just enjoy, love you all. Never thought that would be the last words I would hear from her. Our memories are long and loving for Maria. Rest in peace my beautiful neighbour, you deserve the rest and enjoy heaven! Love you always. Your friends and neighbours Janet, Luiz Alexander and Anthony. Xo

To the whole Varone family: I am deeply saddened by Maria's passing and wish you my sincerest condolences. Maria was always the light and life of any gathering. Travelling to France with her was such a great experience. She brought joy with her wherever she went. I will keep her and your family in my prayers.
