The soul of our family may have left us in body but will forever be with us in spirit and in our hearts. A hero and inspiration to all who knew her.
Finally reunited with Risveglio, the love of her life who left us in 1965. Despite conquering many hardships, Anna’s motto was, “It could be better, but it could always be worse”.
