  3. Rina and Guy were close friends of my in-laws all from Celano. Rina an Jean (mostly Rina) made the Communion dress for my daughter Robin 43 years ago. It was then wore by her two younger sisters and several nieces. The dress was just worn by my Granddaughter Luciano. Rina was the sweetest, loving person anyone could have known…. What a beautiful life. Rest in Peace. The Robert Porretti family!
