    I have fond memories of my Mom, Aunts and Grandmother making hundreds of ravioli's for Christmas dinner. I would sit in the kitchen as a kid and watch them lay out the pasta all over the table, counters, and railing around the stairs. Christmas dinner we would sit down as a big family and share many hours of love together. Grandma will be missed by many people for many years to come but by remembering and sharing these stories she will live on forever. I miss you dearly Grandma and will continue to share memories of our family.

    My fondest memory of my Aunt Lena was her long talk with me at the age of twelve. We sat on her bed with tissues and she taught me everything I needed to know from " the birds and the bees "to how to make those amazing Raviolis that Ronald spoke about. I respect and admire my Aunt and Uncle for there love for each other...66 years of marriage! We are almost half way there and I have them to thank for being amazing role models. I'm so sad that my health prevents me from being there to watch another great soul go to heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with Uncle Nick and all the family I'm missing so much!
