If there was ever an angel living amongst us, it was truly Mrs. P. A devoted wife to the late Chief Al Perno, a loving mother and grandmother to all her family. This special lady was loved by everyone, especially me. She will truly be missed in many ways.
Remembering you always, Gary Maggio

Debbie, Ro, Diane, and Joey,

Your mom was a special woman and I was honored to have her as my Godmother. She held a special place in my heart and always will. Rick, Tony, Greg, Danny, and I send our deepest sympathy and condolences. We were so very sad to hear the news that your mom had passed away. I'm truly sorry that we won't able to be there with you all during this challenging time. We will be there in spirit though, and you will all be in our hearts and prayers.

I have so many happy and fun memories of time spent with Aunt Roe, Uncle Al, and all of you. I remember all the times she would come to our house on Hammond Ave to have lunch with us during her lunch break, the Friday nights after she got out of work and would pick me up to spend the weekend with you guys, all the Thanksgivings we spent at your house and your mom getting flustered when my mom would say "And this too has come to pass" before the day was even done. The summer barbecues and fun times in the pool. The trips we all took together to Long Island to visit Aunt Anna and Uncle Paul and numerous more.
I genuinely pray that you find comfort knowing she is resting in the arms of Jesus and that all the precious memories you carry in your hearts will help you through this difficult time.

I love you all very much.
