A Message from Barbara Theodosiou

It is with the greatest sadness that I must tell you, my TAM sisters, of the tragic passing of my beloved boy, Daniel Francis Montalbano.

He was born into my loving embrace on October 24th, 1991. I loved him from the moment I looked into his beautiful eyes. As the years passed, Daniel required much attention from me, and he became my very heart.

Daniel was kind, thoughtful, and gentle; it was a privilege to know him and to love him. I, his brothers and sister, and his extended family, loved him dearly.
