    Peter and I offer our deepest sympathies to all.
    So many happy memories of the Holidays, at Jones Beach, the Catskill Game Farm, and Grandma and Grandpa Russo’s house.
    Aunt Viola had a smile that lit up the room! Our lost is Heaven’s gain.
    Much love and many blessings,
    Cousin Lori
