My thoughts and prayers are with the Ferrucci family. Gina was an amazing woman, and I am lucky to have gotten to know her and her caring family.
I want to express my deepest sympathy to you and your family. It’s heartbreaking no matter the age of your parent when they pass, but keep the good memories alive in your daughters and the rest of the family.
I wish to extend my condolences to everyone, especially the Anicetti family. May God bless you all. With love, Susan Zona
