Dear Sal and Lucy.......Will miss you both. You were a part of my childhood and spent many times with your family. I remember helping me put my Christmas tree together because I had no clue how to do it. I remember looking at a calorie counter book and saw the calories in eggplant and figured oh wow. Sal turned to me and said "not the way we make it Linda". So so many things remembered. Shopping with Lucy and she eating potato chips after midnight on a Saturday because she gave them up for lent. So happy I got to see them again. It was God's gift to me. Hoping they are playing cards with my Mom and Dad up there and talking about the times we all spent together. xo
