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.

Rosemary

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.

Love,

Mike and Michele and the boys.

Hon, it's been three years the 2nd of October that you are gone. I'm doing O.K, but miss you so much. I miss "us" Hon. I talk to you every day especially when I'm in the garage. You did so much there. Michael, Louis & Tessa are all O.K. All of us miss you so much. The holidays are right around the corner and we'll get through them. Each passing year gets a little easier. I'm in a writing class and I'm writing the story of my life. You are so much a part of my life and you still are. I think of you every day. It helps me get through the day. Death ends a life, not a relationship. Jack Lemon wrote that in one of his books and it is so true. How could I forget 57 years. I couldn't write on the actual anniversary of your passing, Hon. I just couldn't do it. Writing my story Lou, brought back so many memories of us, going back and remembering so many years ago when the kids were young and so were we.I wanted the kids to know some of the history of my family when they came from Italy to America, and then get into the story of my life.

Goodnight Hon, I love you, Rosemary
