I am truly sorry for your loss. May God give you and your entire family strength and bring you joy and peace that you deserve. The scriptures in Revelation 21:4 gives us encouragement. God promises death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. So we know that all these things that bring pain in our lives will be done away with in the future. Please read the scriptures in the Bible and they will give you strength and hope during this tough time.

My condolences go to Filomena's family. I got to know her for over 30 years through my aunt Liliana Dorazio. I remember she and my aunt visited me and my new wife Valerie in Pozzuoli Italy when I was stationed there in1989. I will always remember her as a kind and generous person.
