  1. My deepest condolences to the Costa family. I am a dear friend of Christina and although I never met Michelina I do know how much she was loved and cherished by her children. Michelina was so blessed to have the family that she did to help take care of her in her senior years. May God bless you and hold your hand tightly as you mourn this horrific loss.
