When Gramma Gory passed in 1997, for the first time in my memory, Jim and I hugged, and he said to me "Hey Bro". I thought it was Jim was saying hello in the vernacular of the times and it was kind of cool of the old guy! However, just a month or so ago when Noreen and I visited him in Florida, as usual, he said "Hey Bro", and I didn't give it a second thought. Then he asked "You know where I got that don't you?" Puzzled, I said what do you mean? He said that was how our Italian dad, Louie (Luigi), greeted HIS brother George Gory, and that it was an old traditional Italian greeting of a brother - they said it in sort of an Italian-English way. I was completely amazed - we had been calling each other Bro for (in my mind) completely the wrong reason. So I'm passing it along to all who are interested -in the most Italian and respectful way. Love to all. Good memories of a good man.
