God Bless the family, especially Mary, Vinnie & Benjy! My heart goes out to you with the loss of your Mom. She was such a nice neighborhood mom leaving lots of memories like showing Mary and I how to burn excess arm hair over her stove burner. A nice long life at 90 surely wearing a crown in heaven. Sending love and hugs. Martha XO

I will never forget Nana's generosity and love through her candy bag in her purse, honey and oranges at half time of games, feeding me whenever I would go to her house with David, and always being around with her family.

Mary, Bunny, Benji,
Our sincere condolences on the passing of your dearest mother Angie. She was such a wonderful and delightful woman. She introduced me to Kale, Lemon Lush, and Braciole and always inquired about my garden and asked how my vegetables were doing. I'll always have very fond memories of your mom. I will never forget that Halloween night when she lectured us and said " Why don't you settle down like Benji and get a nice girlfriend"
Preferably a nice Italian girl. Love and miss you "Big A"

Angie was the best neighbor. Growing up next door she was an extension of family. An early memory was Mrs. Spacacino inviting to be called “Aunt Angie”. This felt special and lasts on today. There were many lessons beside genuine hellos and Italian cookies at Christmas. Mitzy, her dog, with Angie’s guidance became a first animal friend. A familiar sound at the back door was her “always welcome” entrance to check in to share a compassionate thought or important neighborhood news. Aunt Angie’s yard was a place to learn responsibility from lawn care or snow blowing. She often provided a cool drink or hot cocoa. Playing outside was often met with a smiling hello from her kitchen window. When Aunt Angie made a fresh home cooked delicacy that she came to know as a favorite, she would come to the back door with a plate or invitation to share. She was full of love and caring! Aunt Angie didn’t have to try. Just led with her heart. She leaves a legacy. May we all be an “Aunt Angie” to someone.
