IN A CURE
Daniela Marie Conte was born in Manhasset, Long Island on July 24th, 2011 at 5:55pm,
weighing 6 lbs 3 ozs and 19 ½ inches long to first time parents Anthony and Katia Conte.
Daniela came into this world like a ray of sunshine. As an infant, she was an extremely happy
baby. She had these big brown eyes, an incredibly sweet smile, and an adorable giggle that
would make you melt. So, it didn't take long before she had us wrapped around her little finger.
As a toddler, Daniela put a remarkable amount of enthusiasm into everything she did. At the
same time, she managed to bring the good out in everything and everyone. She was extremely affectionate and gave endless amounts of love to those closest to her. Daniela also gave the most
amazing hugs. When her dad would come home from work, she would scream, "DADDY" at
the top of her lungs, run at him full speed, leap into the air, and with all her strength, give her dad the biggest hug in the world. In a split second, her hugs could turn a bad day into a spectacular day.
