We grew up in the same Building as the Iudiciani Family, One flight up...Linda was like a second Mother to my sister Carla and Me,
I think we spent more time in HER apt than ours. She always made us feel so loved and special...she was an angel of a woman. .My Mother adored her...we all adored her... Frankie and I were in the same grade at ST Anthony's and she would walk all of us to school, and then sometimes pick us up too.
God Bless Linda Iudiciani , she leaves a Legacy of Kindness on this Earth. She is Flying High in Heaven now , But her memory will remain in our hearts. What a beautiful person she was.

Cuz, Lucy, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Strange how I had just asked about her to Lilli cuz just a few weeks ago, as I haven't seen your mom for so long. Now, what I will have are the memories of talking with her and seeing her leaning over her window sill above the Green Cross, or going back even further, joking around with your dad, Ralph, every time I walked by the pharmacy. Thank you for showing that picture, because I can clearly see the family resemblance to my dad, Cleto, who would have been 92 around this time. Now, it's up to us, the next generation, to keep them alive in our hearts with their words, expressions, deeds. Watch, soon you will be saying their words, phrases, just like I am now. Ripose in pace, Linda.
