  1. Tone-Man, Margealosis, Anth, and Ann, You are all in my thoughts and prayers with the passing of “Grandma.” I always enjoyed talking to her and listening to her Italian accent. She always used to tell me and Anth to go find a nice girl get married and “Maka Lotsa Babies.” She always said “I’ll pray for you.” I am sure she is very happy to be reunited with “Pepine” up in heaven. God Bless all of you. Love, Mike (Little S—) PS. Marge, I could not type my nickname on this website.
