    My Aunti Stella was one of the most loving women I know! She also was a godly woman who raised her family to know Him! I will miss her smile, the joy that came from her inner spirit and life dedicated to God, her amazing LOVE ❤️ for one another, her desire to share the gospel, her love for worship through song, and her precious compassion for her 3 children, husband, her family, and all who knew her!! She will terribly missed but we know she's in the arms of Jesus, her Savior, the One she longed to see! I know she is dancing with her sister, my beloved mom, Geraldine Lanza! They were so close and loved each other dearly! She was also was an amazing Italian cook! I love my Aunti Stella and will forever desire to be like her!! ♥️
