Harvey Emery, who put up the decorations, made a gift of the wreath to Gianna’s mom, Tara Cirella, who maintains the Facebook page, Gistrong.
“Gianna’s mom came by yesterday and it was only right to give it to her and her family,” said Emery.
“My daughter goes to Toll Gate. All the girls are connected in some way in our community. I usually do a pretty good lights thing around Christmas but this year we could not. I wanted the family and our community to know we stand with them, that this Christmas, we will light up our house for them. It hit close to home and has affected our home and community. So we had to do it for them,” Emery said.
