  • My sincere condolences to Mrs. Vignoni’s daughter and family for their loss.
    Although I never met your mother, I talked to her many times over the years
    when she would call The Quincy Sun and we had many chats about her life
    and her wonderful family. She was such a nice lady who I will always remember.
    My deepest sympathy to her family at this difficult time.
    Sincerely, Donna Gray
