It has been a sad week in the Costa family. We have lost our Grandmother, Leone Irene Costa. She passed away on Saturday, August 19th. Leone was a beautiful soul, so full of love and happiness. She was married to Grandpa Joe for 67 years, and had 5 wonderful children, and many grandchildren. I was lucky enough to know Leone for 6 years and she brought so much to my life. I loved her like she was my own grandmother, and she always made me feel as though I was her own granddaughter. I love you Leone and I will always tell stories to my children of the great Grandma Costa. In her voice I can hear her say "Aww Hon"! I made this layout of a picture of her in 1937 when she was 15 years old. Such a beautiful picture, we will miss you so much...
