Carlo, Frank and Families, please accept our sincerest condolences on your loss. My mom and Nilda were childhood friends and mom has always shared beautiful memories of the two of them growing up in Figline together. Their friendship continued to flourish as the years passed, as did their unique bond. May you find comfort in knowing how much your mom was loved and cherished, and how much she will be missed. Sincerely, Maria and Theo Mastorakos and Rose Aiello. (London)
