Mrs. Caminiti was a wonderful lady. My mom and her would talk like they were in New Jersey with accent and volume. Too bad they didn't get together that often but they were fun to watch. For awhile when she lived here, she treated me like family. She was always fun to be around.

Lucy was just the sweetest, she was always such a trooper and never wanted us to help her with anything. She was always making Duane some kind of Italian goodies and he just loved whatever it was she made. We counted her as one of our dearest friends and we will truly miss her. Deepest sympathy to the family - we have you in our thoughts and prayers!
