Aunt Tutti was wonderful, funny and kind. She always spoke her mind and that’s what I loved about her. She always thought about others and called and wrote to keep in touch until she could not longer do that. I still think about how strong of a woman she was to face her illness for so long. I love her and Leon very much as do we all. Tutti and Leon were good to my parents and stood by them in good and bad times. They were true friends and what I would call family. We will never forget them. They are all in heaven together having coffee and talking loud. Rest In Peace Aunt Tutti!
