Benefit Concert a Success
“On Tuesday, September 10, 2013 Code 5 band members received very sad news. Stella Grace Gagliano had passed.
Code 5 and Stella's great uncle Brian organized and performed a band benefit concert along with Dixson and Garrison, Catch 22, and Springer.
Carl & Brenda met Stella in her home along with her parents David and Kara. Stella's beautiful eyes and smile said it all. She was Love, and she was Loved.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kara and David, Stella's grandparents, the extended family and the many, many friends that cared so much.”
