    Dear Ricky, Donna,Linda, Sandra and Lisa

    My deepest condolence on the loss of your Mother. I have some fond memories of her on the couch in Revere. She always had a great way of making me feel welcome, even at the night shift at Dunkin Donuts. I will miss her.. God Bless Her.

    Donna and Family: I was so saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. Having known Anna for so many years, her house was my second home and she was definitely like a second mother to me. There was lots of craziness and laughter at her house. I have many fond memories and good times. She was proud of her children and her grandchildren. She always spoke highly of all of them. She will be missed by all, but the memories will linger on for a lifetime. May she rest in peace always.

    Love Angela and Mike DiGregorio
