  1. Maria was the sweetest lady, she would come into where I work and always tell me stories of her time in Italy. She loved Gino and the rest of her family so much. She will be deeply missed.

  4. Maria was a beautiful lady both inside and out. Enjoyed visiting with her & Gino when they came into the store where I work. I am sure he feels lost without her. Prayers for Gino and their sweet family.
