I am so sorry to hear about the death of Mrs. Cataliotti. She was one of my elementary school teachers in Locust Grove. I remember her saying of shape up or ship out. She is fondly remembered.

Dear Bob, Mary, Janet
So sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. One of the great ones as we remember her life and our good times together. Always a delight to stay for dinner at your house and have some of that wonderful Italian dinner with the sausage and meatballs in that wonderful sauce. I will never forget how wonderful that was. The times we shared a laugh with her, always was one we could talk to. God bless you and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love Claudia and Bill
