Grandmother to nine loving grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

This woman changed my life.
She was my best friend. She was such a force in my life, I loved her so much. I thought i knew everything, a know it all, until I met her. She was everything a bff could want; honest, fun, spoke italian n adorable
I will never forget her. If I live to 210, she will always be my idol; a true lady. My mother adored her, as well. 2 sirens from the 40s. I loved all her books n her precious husband, Al, whom I never met, but spoke to him, always, because she was devoted to him, all her life. She carried a picuture of him, that she kept on her bed nightstand, and took it with us, every time she would leave her home. I loved Guido and will never forget him and Iwill never forget Bella. She loved her babies so much. I will always use her as my role model. My MOMMY met her and adored her too.
She was a very special lady.
