I am the oldest of Anthony and Doris Divito. (Anthony would be your mother-in-law’s brother.)Amico and Assunta were my grandparents. I am also Sandie’s cousin. Sandie and I played together many times in her parents (Leonard and Dorothy – my aunt)front yard as kids- I’m guessing we were around 10 or 11. The last time I saw Sandie was at our grandmother’s funeral. She was as beautiful as I remembered her. I found out about her death from Lucy who I have been talking with lately. My wife and I are planning a trip up to visit. I was very saddened to hear of Sandie’s death. I am truly sorry and wish I could have seen her again. The only picture I know of her was when my father took our pictures on a visit to PA. My phone cell phone number 757-477-2440.
In all the years that I have known the Sciullo family – I don’t ever remember Sandy in a bad mood – she was always smiling and pleasant. She is finally at peace. Hold on to the wonderful memories and may they somehow give you comfort. My sincere sympathy to the Danahey, Sciullo and Smith families at this very difficult time. God Bless.
