Our summers in Cleveland during our younger years in late 80's were the best since we always get to see Aunt Tona while visiting Grandma Theresa. We loved her smiles, stories, and good ol' Sicilian baking/cooking. Thank you for all those wonderful memories. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. She will be deeply missed.

We love you and will miss you Antoinette, but I know that you and Nana are having a wonderful time in Paradise with all of your family and friends!

This is more of a "see you later" than a "Goodbye!"
