Mrs.Bellows was always honest and so funny. I remember when she kept Mollie, Shanna and myself and we had aggravated her to no end. She finally raised her tone telling us to stop whatever we were doing at the time and slammed her hand on the coffee table, at that time her false teeth popped out making her even more angry. It was hilarious to three kids who were pushing boundaries. We were in a bit of trouble that day to say the least. I remember she would always throw pasta on the wall to see if it was done. I loved hearing her speak Italian. She adored Mollie and Shanna and was always welcoming to me and so kind. I am sorry she’s gone. I am also sending all my love to her family.
