My thoughts and prayers to all the family of Fannie. She was a sweetheart and i will miss her. I saw her when she came to have her hair done and her and I would have a nice visit. We would always hug and kiss when she was leaving and i will miss that. God gave her to all to love and she loved back. I know the family will miss her but she is now at peace. Love to you Fannie Claudia
Condolences to all family members. I well remember as a boy, all of the Ciaiola brothers meeting at Uncle George and Aunt Fannie's house for a music fest. Guitars, harmonicas and lots of harmonizing of favorite songs. Those songs and memories still resonate in my heart. Rest in peace Aunt Fannie.
