"Condolences to the family of Maria Perego,
We send our deepest regrets on the loss of your dear Maria. As you can see from the comments on this site many of us have seen her expertise puppetry with Topo Gigio on the Ed Sullivan Show as adults and as children who are now adults. May the thoughts and encouraging words about comfort help to ease some of your pain in losing a loved one."
"Thank you Ms Perego for the fun memories I have of Topo Gigio as a child. I looked forward to seeing him on the Ed Sullivan show. I extend my sincere condolences to your family and friends but I hope it helps them to know that you have so many of us these good memories."
