  1. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. While, I did not know her well I always very pleasant conversations with her the Verona Pool. We had our Italian Heritage in common. She was such a nice person.

    My condolences and prayers go out to her family.

  2. My little girl synclaire loved her summer pool friend. From when she was a baby, zena watched her in the stroller. Last year at 5 synclaire always made pictures for her and hugged her. She was a very sweet lady and took a liking to my daughter. We will miss her!
