I knew Giannina as "The Welcome Lady" for an online ballet board. She was truly welcoming. I never knew her personally, but wish I did. My condolences to her family and friends who have lost a dear soul.

Giannina was our much-loved cousin, one we'll miss very much. Witty, pleasant, always fun to be with, mother of a wonderful family we were always happy to see. Heaven has gained a treasure.
With our heartfelt sympathy and condolences, and our love.

I'm sorry for your loss. If Adrienne is a reflection of her mother, she was a beautiful soul. With sympathy
