  • We wish to extend our deepest condolences to the family on their loss. We didn’t know your Nicolina but we knew of her brave stuggle for these past years and admired all she did with the family and her indomitable spirit. We are close friends of Lino and Genny Palmieri and we sympathize with them on their loss. We know how very devoted Lino was to his sister.

    Sincerely William & Barbara Iannuccilli
