Louie, your gone 5 years and it's so hard for me to believe that many years have passed. I never thought I would make it through the first year but with the help of Michael Louis and Tessa and your sisters and neighbors I'm still here and doing O.K I don't have to tell you that my life has changed and it took me a long time to accept the change and I have. I do volunteer work at the library, I'm helping a Mexican women with her reading and speaking better English. She wants to get her GED so that she can get a job. That keeps me busy 2 days a week and I also belong to a church group, we socialize and end up saying the Rosary, and then 4 or 5 of us go out to lunch. Our neighbors Phyllis and Jerry have been so good to me and Nita has too. So all and all Hon I'm doing O.K There was a problem with the shop on Orange Grove and Michael and I took care of it. The old galvanized pipe in the metal Bldg. was leaking and we were forced to put in copper piping. Michael helps me thru all of the problems and I am so grateful.

I will miss you for the rest of my life and I will love you forever, Rosemary

Louie, it's been a while since I last wrote to you. I want you to know I'm doing o.k.I miss you so much. I miss "us". It's 4 years since your gone and I think of you so many times during the day. It has been such a wet, cold winter and I have not been to see you since before Christmas. Michael and I are planning to go to Rose Hills on Sunday, March 12th. It's supposed to be a warm day.

Were all doing fine Hon. We will never stop missing you. I talk to Carmine about once a week and we end up reminiscing the old days when you and Marty were still with us. Such wonderful memories of our lives. I was 83yrs. old on Jan.2nd Hon and you and I would have celebrated by going to Morongo.

I will never stop loving you Hon. There are so many memories of you around the house. I think so many times of when we were both young and I lose myself in those memories.

Goodnight my love, Rosemary

Happy Anniversary Hon.

Today is our 61st wedding anniversary. I thought about us for the past 2 days and of course today I relived our wedding and the reception at the "Turn Hall" in Mt. Vernon.

We got married at 3:00 o'clock in the afternoon at St.Anthony's church in Mt.Vernon on Saturday April 30th. I remember everything about that day. After the ceremony we went to the photographers studio down on 1st. street in Mt. Vernon to have our pictures taken.

After the reception we changed clothes at Mom and Dads house and we left on our honeymoon. We drove over the George Washington Bridge to New Jersey in your 1949 Ford and we stayed overnight in N.J. The next morning we started on our trip to Daytona Beach, Fla. where we would spend our honeymoon and the next 57 years together.

I love you Hon and I always will. You always told me "we have something special" and we did. So Happy Anniversary my love. You are always in my heart.

Hi Dad,
I have some sad news, we had to put down Maya. She had developed cancer her lip. The cancer moved very quickly, before we knew it, her legs became immobilized.

Putting her down, that brought back so many memories of Sarge.

But, Michele and I knew it was the right thing to do.

So, she is with you now, I know that she is running around, no pain.

The boys are doing well, Michele and I are doing fine.

Believe this, I am teaching now. I am a contract instructor. I teach at the local community center and I am applying to teach at a local community college.

I enjoy giving back.

Dad, every morning I ask you to watch over the family. Keep us all going strong.

Dad, you take care. Enjoy playing with our beautiful Maya.


Mike and Michele and the boys.
