I met Stella many years ago through Carlo.I remember how much fun Stella had at our wedding nearly 13 years ago.She came with her son Carlo.After the ceremony was over, I was standing in the entry way of the church.I felt a gentle "tug" and "tight squeeze" at my waist.Thinking it was one of my cute little nieces running around,I glanced below only to find "sweet Stella" giving me a big "bear hug" with the biggest grin & well wishes.It was a very special moment.She is missed.

Dear Carlo, My memories of your mom go back to 1958 when she first came from Italy. I remember, at that time, there was a very popular song on the radio by an Italian singer, Domenico Modugno. The song was Volare. Your mom thought it was really something that an Italian song was so popular in America. I learned to speak the "real" Italian language from your mom. Before I just heard dialect from my grandparents. Your mom wanted me to speak English more so she'd learn the language faster. But me being a young nine year old, I picked up Italian quickly. I remember her beautiful Christmas tree display. She'd make a scene under the tree using mirrors for water ponds with moss and lots of other things. It was put together with such detail and I loved looking at it. Your mom was kind to me, and a very good cook too. We had some good times in the old farmhouse before the freeway came through. I will always cherish those memories. Love, Jana

Carlo,

I met your parents at your USC graduation in 1996. I found them to be thoughtful, polite and proud of you. Your mother was a paragon of old school virtues. People like your mom are truly the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13).

Carlo,

Your mom was a special person. I remember first meeting her when you introduced us over twenty year ago -- amazingly, it seems like yesterday. What immediately stood out -- through her tough exterior -- was her integrity and high caliber character. I knew immediately that she could be trusted and that she was a force for good in the world. I liked her instantly -- which is an extremely rare response for any person. While she never mentioned it, I could tell she had been through some difficult times that shaped and strengthened her. God often does that, i.e., puts people through difficult experiences and uses those experiences to shape them and make them stronger to help execute His purpose. Your mom was one of those people. It is not what a person is given or starts out with that counts--rather, it is how they responds to the challenges and barriers in life that define what they are truly made of. My thoughts were confirmed by your write-up of your mom in the Seattle Times. I know that it is people like your mom (and dad) that built this country with blood, sweat and tears, and they will never be forgotten and that there efforts are continued. While we never discussed it verbally, your mom's spirit reflected that she understood God's plan, i.e., that He "gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16. I hope and pray to see her again one day.


Your friend,

Bill
