My sincere condolences go to the family at this trying time. There are scripture passages that comfort me greatly that I would like to share. Isaiah 25:8 tells of a time that God will swallow up death forever. Also, Job declared that those who have died will be resurrected to a better life. And Psalm 37:29 is God's promise that all will be able to live forever in His restored paradise. May God’s peace and comfort be yours. ( Isaiah 26:4).

Tony and Matilda, worlds can't convey how sorry we are for your loss. Zia Maria was a kind and happy spirited women who will always have a special place in our hearts. We will miss her ability to brighten any room that she walked into with her smile and wonderful sense of humor. We feel honored and fortunate to have had her in our lives.

With Love,
Ivan, Klara and Benjamin Sanfilippo
