And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

Sentite Condoglianze alla famiglia in questi momenti difficili
From all of us here, we send our deepest condolences to all the family. I have very fond memories of Pina during lots of family get togethers when we were young and I always felt very welcomed and excited to be around everyone and Pina was always so thoughtful and caring. I remember her smile and her happiness when we were all together. These memories will be with me forever and although the distance kept us from spending more time together, those thoughts and feelings I had back then, will never leave my heart and mind. Pina, may you rest in peace.
Our sincere condolences to Domenic, Grace , Joe and families for the loss of dear Pina. She was a wonderful and caring woman who touched all of our hearts. Rest in peace
Dear Joe and family,
Sending our deepest sympathies to all of you. We may have enjoyed a jar or two of her sundried tomatoes, and other wonderful food that she created with such love. Duwayne was always so excited when Joe would come by with food from his mom and share such wonderful stories of his family and the cooking that would happen and the laughter around the table. She will be deeply missed by all of you, but what wonderful memories you have to comfort you. Thinking of all of you – Duwayne, Rhonda, Christopher, and Kelsie Lang
Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday
Unseen, unheard but always near
Still loved, still missed and very dear
