So many wonderful memories growing up on Staten Island. Get togethers at Grandma and Grandpa's house on Russell Street and Family picnics at the Poggi's house. Eating, laughing and playing cards and Bocci ball. So glad we were able to stay in touch. I will miss our phone calls.

My sweet cousin, Joannie. I will miss our phone conversations and you asking me, “What are you cooking for dinner?” I know that you’re in heaven, but you’ll be missed here on Earth. So, I’m praying for all of us, who will miss you so......🙏🏼
