Condolence & Memory Journal

My heart felt condolences to the DeFranco family. I was deeply saddened upon hearing of dear, dear Aunt Anna. I am so sorry I did not have the opportunity to bid Aunt Anna farewell. I honestly loved her. She was very special to me, and I will sincerely miss her. She was truly blessed to have such a loving family.

Aunt Anna holds a special place in my heart. She had great energy, wit, and a passion for life. She was always cutting out a recipe, reminiscing about a happy time, and curious. My deepest sympathies to Deb, Annemarie, Peter, and Paul and all the DiFranco family. With love.

We are truly sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Anna, She was the most kind, sincere person and a wonderful godmother to my husband. Her laughter will always be heard. Jim, her godson's fondest memories were of his growing up with his cousin Annemarie and always sharing runtimes during the summer. She made me always feel so welcome into her family, and we are all blessed to have had her in our life.
