  5. Lucy, Andrew and your families,
    We are sending our love at this sad time. Zia Felicetta was a special lady – always loving and kind, and, amazingly, always remembering milestones for everyone in the family. I am grateful for the stories she shared of my Nonno, and for welcoming Chris to our family right from the beginning. I am happy she lived so long, surrounded by loving family. We will miss her and remember her always.
    Love, Chris, Steph and the girls.

  10. Dear Lucy, Andrew, and your families;
    Zia Felicetta was a sweet aunt to her numerous nieces and nephews and I was truly blessed to have such a wonderful Godmother. She was thoughtful, loving, and gentle. She was an amazing historian on the L’Amarca family. It was incredible how she remembered dates and other details from so long ago and she never forgot to call me on my birthday. I loved staying with her when I went to Calgary. I remember the last summer I visited and she was telling me stories about the L’Amarca family, mostly my dad, and the next thing we knew, it was into the wee hours of the morning. Besides remembering everything, she had the gift of captivating the attention of those to whom she was relaying the story. The 2 eldest and the youngest are reunited. Even in heaven, I bet my dad is keeping your mum on her toes. My dad used to say she was like a second mum to him. Zia Felicetta will be greatly missed. I pray you and all her loved ones find peace in the joy of having been blessed to be a part of her life and know she is in in heaven free of pain and reunited with loved ones who were waiting to welcome her. Rest in the peace of Christ.
