Although I have had the pleasure of directly connecting with her and had sadly read her obituary, the video is a TRUE TREAT.

Our family has lost its Energizer Bunny. My Dad Joe & her brothers Angelo & Danny were waiting to give their little sister a great big hug. Oh what a reunion it was to be together again at that big "Toscano" table surrounded by all of the love that had been waiting for her arrival. Peace & comfort to her family but know that she is heaven's newest angel that welcomed her with open arms.
