Hello Di Ponio family. Our condolences on your mom´s passing. She was the last of that generation we grew up with in the old Montebello neighborhood. Made me think of those early days. Your dad Nick digging what we all thought would be a swimming pool, only to find out it would be a wine cellar! Your mom and the rest of you arriving from Italy later. The photo was from my mom´s 80th birthday in 1994. Our dad was gone. There are four of us left; Ofelia, Mike, Bob and George. Time flies in retrospect. Best to you all from all of us, Bob Valdez [email protected]
