Dear Dineen & Marybeth,
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a wonderful person and neighbor on Prospect Street. We lived directly next door to you. Do you remember the Choquette's. I also remember babysitting for you many years ago. Those were great times and your Dad, Tony, was so good to our family. My sincere condolences to your families. Love, Charlotte Choquette Pittman

Dineen, Marybeth and all - Your mom was simply amazing. One story I remember about her was told to me by my dad. He and Uncle Jackie, when they were boys, were supposed to be watching the goats. They weren't and the goats got to a berry bush of some sort and got drunk. When Nonna found out she chased the two boys and they hid under a bed where she couldn't reach them laughing their heads off. Nonna told Auntie Mary, "Maria, go get me the broom". She did as she was told and then Nonna was able to get at Jackie and Johnny with the broom. She then turned and swatted Auntie Mary. Auntie Mary said to Nonna, "What did I do?" Nonna said, "Don't you ever turn on your brothers." I love that story. Your mom was elegance personified. Even though I've been too far away to visit very often, I will miss her.
