Antonietta writes: “What a huge regret, I had met her at the post office to solve a problem. I was really struck by her availability and kindness, a rare person. May the earth be light on you.” And also: “News we never wanted to receive. Monreale is crying for you today, dear Rosa Maria. Here you had endeared yourself to anyone who crossed your path, a great loss. You leave an indelible memory.” Tomorrow, June 8, will be the day of farewell.
