  1. Our warmest regards and deepest regrets for your great loss

  2. Love to the Giffoni family. Vilma was a wonderful person. I know she is in a better place and hopefully laughing it up with Floyd
    Love to Sam
    So sorry

  3. I am so heartbroken to hear of Vilma’s passing. Vilma was a wonderful lady and I have such great memories of her and her great smile. Two things I remember the most is her fantastic Italian cooking (7 course meals). I was quite younger at the time and I had a rough time eating it all, but I had to try everything because it was so good! I also remember Vilma’s great personality. She was always so nice and I could sit for hours and listen to her talk. I have other wonderful memories from my childhood of her and the family as well. I am sad that I did not get to see Vilma and the family more as I grew up, but in my mind it was like yesterday hanging out and playing with the Giffoni kids. Such memories of their home and family. Today I reach out to all of the family and pray that God will comfort you at this time of loss. Four years ago I lost my dad and that was the hardest time ever for me. I never thought of him not being there. I am so very grateful that I did have him in my life for such a long time. This is the same for all of you. We are fortunate to have our parents this long. I still have my mom and you still have your dad so enjoy that time you have left with him. I am sure that is what Vilma would want. Love and kisses to all of you and prayers for your broken hearts and healing.

    Lovingly,
    Cheryl (McClary) Proett
