Carissima Michelina and family,
My condolences on the loss of Frank. I know how much my grandmother, Teresa Ceravolo, of 122 First Street, loved all of you and how important you were in her life. I am visiting Stalettì until August 1 and learned of Frank’s death from my cousin Salvatore Esposito. Coincidentally , in preparing for my visit to Stalettì I had left a message on Michaelina’s phone asking if any of you would be here. I have such fond memories of your family and share the sorrow of your loss.
With much love,
Barbara Adolfi
