We continue to send our deep sympathy, love and prayers to Adrienne’s children, their spouses and families. Adrienne is our oldest first cousin in my mom’s Italian family, the Cianfroccas. (Mom’s oldest sister Caroline was Adrienne’s
Mother). I don’t know how to be concise describing what she meant to us. As an icon who kept our family close and together, she will be missed forever for her warmth, kindness, thoughtfulness, generosity, humility, love of family, and deep faith. As many have stated here and in family texts, she was beautiful inside and out. We were honored to call her family. Our hearts are broken but she remains in them forever. We will continue to honor her memory by loving her wonderful children and their families.
