  • Dear Mom,
    I love you so much, you meant the world to me. I am the mother I am today because of you. I will miss talking to you daily here on earth, but no worries, you will hear my heart and still guide me with your wisdom and love every day.
    What a beautiful soul you have, and you were the life of the party and the bright light and burst of energy that touched so many lives. I hope your singing the
    Il Volos songs and dancing to Elvis!
    Love you forever,
    Your daughter Sandra xoxo

  • Both of us are so sad to hear of Elena’s passing. We had such great times together meeting at Nando’s and Lorenzo’s in Hollywood and hearing her and Primo sing and dance together. Primo would always sing my favorite Italian song when he saw me -“ Chitarra Romana.”
    We certainly miss those days. I’m sure she’s leading the choir in Heaven now. Our prayers are with you all. Stay well Primo.
    Jo-Ann and Tom

  • Ron, Rick, and Sandy, please know my prayers 🙏 are with all of you. Primo, I’m so sorry for your loss as well. Elena was a bright star and a sweet woman. My deepest condolences are with your family.

  • Marc and I send our most sincere condolences to all of the family & friends who were blessed enough to know and love Elena especially Primo. Although I personally didn’t know her I felt as though I did through Pina’s stories. I feel fortunate to have met her although it was during her final days. I’ll never forget that cutest little smiley laugh she gave us. Thinking of all of you. Rest in sweet peace, Elena.

  • GOD BLESS, MAY YOUR JURNEY CONTINUE IN HEAVEN. Praying for the family.🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • So very sorry (and shocked) to hear what happened. With deepest sympathy and condolences to everyone. One of the PT girls (Kim) at Southwood told me how Elena liked to sing to the residents. I am glad she never lost her sense of humor and compassion for doing what she loved during her stay there. May she rest in peace. Love, Bridget

  • Our deepest sympathies to the entire family. Elena was such a kind woman with a beautiful smile. May she rest in eternal peace.
