I first met Mrs. Cipriani when I became acquainted with her daughter Juliana. We had great times together going out to dinner at her favorite places; especially her 97th birthday gathering at Cabrera's where I met all her friends and other family, playing a game at home that weekend( where she was so sharp and beat Juliana and myself)and just overall being with her at home. She was very religious and I know that there is no place where she will be but in the loving arms of God and her husband. While on earth, she had two angels taking care of her. Her loving daughters Juliana and Rita. Especially Juliana who took care of her on a daily basis. Her mind did not miss a thing and I enjoyed every minute of being in her presence. Only God know when HE is going to ask us to come home,however while on this earth Yole was very loved and well taken care of. I will say prayers for her and her husband and they will always be in my memory. They both lived on this earth for 97 years. Only Yole lived on this earth 19 days longer.

I have so many wonderful memories knowing Yole for 50 wonderful years. Juliana and I met as freshman in 1968 and I met Yole parent's weekend Julie and I thought parents were to eat together and my parents had lunch and they were the only ones without their daughters. That's where Juliana and I began our lives together. From there I learned so much from Yole with cooking the Italian food and the closeness with the Italian family.
A cute memory is when I brought John ( my husband) to meet Yole and Adolph. He enjoyed the homemade wine Adoph made and we had to walk around the lake to be able to eat the main course after John thought the appetizer and salad was the full meal.
Every time I make my meat sauce or the Lobster Fra Diablo, my friends ask when I will be opening my Italian restaurant. The problem is that's all I ever learned and I depend on Juliana .
Juliana and Yole always cooked everything else. We are so blessed to have had Yole as another mom and Juliana as a sister. My prayers and thoughts will be sent to the family on Wednesday. I am so sad I cannot be with Julie and her family. We Love you.
Saulyne and John
