Mrs. Maria Vallario Arista
I feel so fortunate to have had such a strong role model in my life during my formative years. I have wonderful memories from my childhood, remembering all the family outings and fun conversations we had. While getting to know Mary over the years I became increasingly aware of her great strength, perseverance and will to overcome the adversity she has faced in her life. I am so thankful that she was able to meet my daughter at her baptism and will always treasure the rosary she gave us that day, to remind us God is always with us. We love you Mary. Love, Bruno and Andrea
Mary, God has called you because you are truly an angel and God needs you by his side. It is truly hard for me and my family, but we have to remember that you are in a better place now and have no pain or suffering. We love you Mary. Thank you for being my angel and you will truly be missed. I know that you will watch over us and give us the strength to keep going. Love you always
To my precious, beautiful, and courageous mother: You are a testament to us all. Your strength, will and faith surpasses anyone's. You are my inspiration and I will continue your fight. Caila has been blessed to have known and be loved by you. Tu sei unica, Mamma, Bella, Brava e Buona. Ti voglio bene bloh blah Nonna.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
