  1. Laura Colona was my sister-in-law since I was 11-years old and that’s a long, long time. She and my brother Angelo raised a wonderful family and they were a very close knit family. I always admired Laura for supporting her children by attending all their sporting events while they were growing up. The family spent all holidays and birthdays together and she had so much fun. with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, who brought her so much joy in her final years. We will miss your smiles and laughter Laura. May you Rest in Peace! Amen!🙏
