To the Amico family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Amico was such a wonderful lady. My grandparents, Joe & Millie Coviello, knew her well. Now they are all up in Heaven watching over us. Mrs. Amico would always bring my daughter and I her delicious homemade pasta when we lived in my grandfather's house after he passed away. May God be with her and watch over her family.
Love,
Melissa (Mecca) Talarico

Patty: I am truly sorry to read of your Mom's passing. We had some fun times together when we were working. She was a special lady and everyone loved her. I so enjoyed my lunches and dinners with her. She will be missed. Unfortunately, I won't be home for Easter and am truly sad that I won't be able to see her one last time. My sincere sympathy to you and all of the family.
Fondest Regards, Joann
