    Our condolences and most heartfelt prayers go out to the family and friends affected by Anita’s passing. How one can be perceived is often reflected in the the actions of their child. As friends of Domenico and his family, we can say that she and her late husband, were incredible people as they have raised an incredible son in Domenico. God Bless both Anita and Joe as they are once again united in His kingdom.
