    Mrs. Giustini, Diana, and family:
    We extend our most profound condolences to you all for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. Growing up with Diana, I was privileged to know you as a family, and those memories will always remain dear to me. But unlike some childhood friendships, our ties did not weaken once we went off to live our lives, each in our own direction. I feel so blessed that our daughters came to know the wonderful angel, who waited outside St. Alphonsus daily with warm greetings, candies and a smile that could melt anyone’s heart. Every Sunday, we anticipated entering the Church and being greeted with a hug and kiss by Mr.Giustini, who stood in the back chatting with his friends. Every time we returned from receiving Holy Communion, Mr. Giustini would wink and smile as we passed by him. We will miss all that Mr .Giustini did and brought to all his encounters, but we pray you feel comfort knowing how great an impact he made on so many. Mr. Giustini’s legacy will live on in each of you and for that we know he was very proud. May God grant you all the strength and courage to continue living the life of faith Mr. Giustini modeled for us all. May the Lord grant Mr. Giustini eternal repose.

    We all offer our condolences. The kids remember Aleandro waiting at the front of the school, always ready with a treat, and while waiting, I would join him in conversation along with other moms. I also remember his compassion when dad was ill and he would visit dad to help him shave. It touched my heart. I’m sad that he was called to the Lord so suddenly but I hope that you can find comfort in the belief that he is in God’s loving hands and that he will visit you as an angel.
