My heartfelt condolences go out to the family. Heaven has another angel looking after us all.

I am so sorry to know of my dear friend, Rina's, passing. She was one of my first friends in Toronto and I looked forward to her visits before and after work for a couple coffees and some conversation. She was lively and independent and I enjoyed her friendship for many, many years. She will be missed very much.

My heart goes out to you, Christina and family in particular, and to Rina's family.

With love and sympathy,
Tecla and Tony Tripone

We were very saddened yesterday to learn of Irene's passing. We remember her fondly as a sweet and loving lady who was very devoted to Zio Luigi, Mike and Frank and over the years, to Susan, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
We would like to express our most sincere condolences to Mike, Frank and Susan and family! Although due to COVID we can not express our sympathies in person, please know that you are all in our prayers. May Irene find rest in God's loving eternal embrace!!
Con un caro abbraccio a voi tutti,
