What a figure Uncle Tony always was. Although I was young, I can still hear his voice. Please know that you are all on our hearts and minds. My mother always adored her younger brother and infact so did my dad. So long ago. Last time I saw my uncle and his lovely wife, Aunt Kitty, I was maybe 24 years old. It was of course in Florida. He tested me to see how smart I was. I think I passed. I think he liked me. Too long ago. Aunt Kitty so glad you have your children and grandchildren to comfort you. Much love. Linda and John Emmanuelle and Dominique Ameroso.

A. Kitty, thinking of you and your family in time of your loss. I remember U Tony very well. So handsome, so talented. I can see him now playing his guitar for the family off the cuff. I remember when you all lived at Wheaton Place on the center floor, when the two Linda's were born! I remember the boxer Cy and how he loved your kids. I remember U Tony's voice and can hear it in my head even now. I remember he was an individual and did what he believed and wasn't swayed by others. I was sad when you all moved from NJ and went to FL. The family lost its luster when you all left. I wish I was able to see him one more time but it wasn't meant to be. I always thought you were so pretty and was happy when I was around you. I loved hearing all the stories about the family. Everyone always gathered and talked lots. Be well and God bless your family. Say hi to Linda for me. She was the closest of your kids to me. Shirley
