    Rick, Sue and Jenna

    Please accept our most sincere and heartfelt sympathies to you and your family.

    It is difficult to know what to say during this time of such tragic loss. It is so unbelievable and I know that no words can ease the pain that you, Lia’s family, are going through right now.

    Lia was a wonderful girl, so full of life and promise for the future. The short time we knew her has given us precious memories that we will hold dear forever. We will miss her very much.

    Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Love “The Vescio Family”
