    I will always feel blessed to have met and known Nonna for the very short period that I did. She told me stories of her family, husband and grandchildren. She smiled when she talked of the good times coming to Canada, and raising her family, working hard and creating a home here in Calgary. A tear would roll down her cheek as she spoke about Suzanna and each one of her grandchildren, and how much she loved each one of them.

    I spent one very special day with Nonna in Phoenix, we ate and talked for hours… She became my friend, my Nonna as well.

    My sincerest sympathy goes out to Marisa and her family during this very difficult time of loss. Nonna will be dearly missed and always loved.
