Planted in the area of greatest need

Maria Galante was a very kind hearted woman , I remember her well growing up as a boy - big smile to greet me always , lots of nice treats to eat & a warm fire going in the next room. Her beautiful birds she kept and raised on their farm in Little Britain showed another welcome sign of her true caring and compassion. I'm sad to hear of her death but knowing she will be spreading sunshine with her smile from heaven above is something to behold. May she rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to the Galante Family. The Galante farm was a special place for my family especially my Dad who would visit every Sunday and have coffee & chat with Sergio & Maria. I especially remember the beautiful gardens at the farm. May the fond memories of Maria help ease the loss of such a remarkable woman. RIP Maria

It is with sadness that I hear of my godmothers passing, I have not seen her in a long time but she will always be remembered for her great passion and love for all. I will always remember many of the summers spent at the farm in Port Perry, my condolences to the family and may she Rest In Peace.
