    My condolences to the whole Scotella family. I remember how welcome Nani always made me feel, ever since the first time I met her while dating Sabrina. She had a wonderful nurturing way, and you were always taken care of when she was around. There were no details left to chance, and you always left her company with a full belly! She leaves behind a wonderful legacy of memories for all her loved ones.

    My grandmother was a magnificent woman. She was beautiful, talented, and an amazing cook. There are so many memories of her I will treasure forever. A few that stand out for me are the smells of her delicious food, her crystal bowl filled with butterscotch candy, her S cookies, filling out lottery tickets, her cooking lessons, Sunday dinners(at 2:00) with the family gathered around the impressive table in the basement, and her amazing memory that she used to tell me the best stories of growing up in New York and meeting Papa. Nani never had a “lazy” day-she always put in the effort and “dressed to impress”. I know Jason wishes I inherited that trait! I will miss Nani deeply and treasure my memories with her forever.

    I’ll always remember visiting Nani. She was always dressed to impress and treated both guests and family to some of the best food and company. Her breakfasts would fill you for the day with the endless options. Just in time for dinner where she cooked the best peppers and sausage, and ending with the S cookies. There’s a reason our family shows our love through food and it’s because of memories like these. We love and miss you Nani.
