  3. I am sorry to hear of the loss of Maria. I have many fond memories of her when we were neighbors when I lived at home with my mom and dad many years ago. She often would visit and have coffee with my mother and always brought some baking fresh from the oven. She was a warm, gentle and caring woman. My condolences.

    Claude Solda and family

    To the Pozzi family

    We offer our deepest sympathies for your loss. My mother and I remember your mother Maria to be a very kind and caring person. We regret the fact we can not attend the ceremonies in person since my mother Rosa can not be out of the house for any length of time. We are there with you in spirit and and if there is anything the Foglia family can do, please let us know.
    Love, Rosa and Claudio

    My deepest condolences, to the Pozzi and Volpi families on the loss of Maria. We have unfortunately never met. But my mother often spoke fondly of her cousins that now lived in Calgary, snd how she wished to visit one day (unfortunately, that was not to be). At this time, I would like you to know that even though we have not met, Maria and her family are in my prayers during this difficult time.
