Dear Tony and Ann, I was saddened to hear of the loss of your beloved Mother. May all the wonderful moments you shared with her over the years remain in your hearts and bring you peace and comfort.

Tony, so sorry to hear of the passing of Vera. She was a wonderful person and always gave me some "Italian" advice through the years at the cleaners and when she came to the bank. A gentlewoman for sure.

Auntie Vera - For as far back as I can remember as a child at birthdays and holidays at the Bianchi's, you and Uncle Gino were there. You had a zest for life, you devoted yourself to your family and their care and happiness, you were a true Italian chef cooking continuously for anyone and everyone you could find ! a talented seemstress...the list goes on. But what will stay in my heart always is every time you and Uncle Gino would see me one of you would always ask me to recite an Italian poem my grandmother taught me and I was probably 5 the first time and 45 the last! Somehow that brought you both joy and you would smile and laugh and that made me happy to do it. I know your beautiful soul is walking with the Lord in eternity but your presence here will be sadly missed. I pray that God brings comfort to your family and every now and then I will recite the poem for both of you in my prayers and smile. ♡ 🙏
