  • Silvia was always so warm and kind from the moment we met about 47 years ago. She opened her heart and her home to everyone. She always made me feel special in the way she would greet meet with a hug and a kiss and she always had something nice to say. Even on our recent visit when she was sick, she was so happy to see me and had a constant smile on her face. A beautiful woman inside and out, a beautiful soul. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜”โ™ฅ๏ธYou will be missed by all. My deepest condolences to Anna, Olivo, Mr Garofalo and family Love.

  • My brothers Joey, Tony, and I, are so deeply saddened to hear of this tremendous loss of such a beautiful, kind, caring, and nurturing human being. Many wonderful memories at the Garofalo household with great conversations and delicious food prepared by her. From my first introduction of Mrs G. through Anna, my dear friend, (we were neighbours at the time), I felt her warmth, she cupped my face with her hands while saying hi, and she gave me a little kiss. So forgettable. I knew, from that first greet, how very special she was. We feel so very blessed to have known her. Our hearts, and deepest sympathy go out to Anna, Olivo, and Mr. Garofalo, as well as the rest of her family. May your Angel Rest In Peace. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ขโค๏ธ - Posted by: Lisa Karpyshin (Friend of family) on: Feb 12, 2023
