Dear Bud,

I am sorry to hear about your mom's passing. I would bet that like most Italian moms she loved having her family close and loved sharing family history.

I do hope that she somehow knew how much we enjoyed having you out to fish with us every week throughout the summer. I would bet that much of the warmth and kindness we saw in you came from your mom. May god's blessings be with your mom, you, and your family.

Gram, I’ve sat at your side and related every word before, but just know you made the most incredible impact on my life. I’ll be brief (not my strong suit 😊), but just know I’m so proud and grateful to be your grandson. Rest peacefully, my dear Gram. I love you to the moon and back.

Almira was more like a sister than a sister-in-law. Her Italian sausage, peppers and potatoes were the best. I could count on her bringing a large roaster to the farm partys for all to enjoy. She was a grand lady!
