Dear Tony and Josie, My strongest memories of your mom are those of my youth when your mother would have been in her late forties or early fifties. She was a beautiful woman on the outside and on the inside. Her generousity and her love for others overflowed. I remember being treated to specialties like sundried tomatoes and many other treats usually reserved for special occasions. I wish to express my gratitude in having known her and know that you were both truely blessed. Godspeed Sia Rosa.
