Hi, My name is Maryrose. Francesca was my new friend in NY. We met at the church Our Lady of Pompeii. The last time I saw her, we went out for lunch after daily mass and had a wonderful time. She spoke with great fondness and love for her children. I was away when she went home to God and just found out. My condolences. She was a lovely woman. I loved hearing her read the readings in her Italian accent and sing Allelluia. Peace to the family. I miss her already.
