    I’m so sorry for the loss of Stephanie from the Guarino family. I remember coming into the Guarino home for the first time many years ago on Winter St in Saugus and being so amazed that the whole family lived together and thinking how lucky my friend was to live downstairs from her Aunts & grandparents. I will always remember Stephanie as a kind hearted, softer spoken out of all her sisters, who loved her family and cats fire & ice. Rest in paradise Stephanie I know you will be watching over your family you will truly be missed until we meet again.
