In ricordo di Gennaro DiRomualdo
Sentite condoglianze dai parenti italiani
Great grief for the loss of my cousin even though I do not see him from several years.
Here is a message of condolences for all the family of Gennaro DiRomualdo from Natalia Di Romualdo, his husband Virgilio Conti and her family in Italy.
My sister Liliana (Antonietta) Di Romualdo from Collalto Sabino, his husband Leonardo and her daughters Vittoria, Francesca and Loredana join together this participation.
I’d like either someone of the Fierro Funeral Service organization or the Father during the Christian Burial could recite a prayer to Gennaro and express our sincerely condolence to the family members; otherwise, hoping some reader will be able and available to transmit this writing to some ones of them.
