    We remember Aunt Rose with fond memories. Remember her dancing, beautifully dressed & full of fun. She was my sponsor when I was confirmed. I spent a lot of time with her Uncle Angelo when I was 2 to 4 years old. Then when I moved back to NJ in 1958 I lived with them for 8 months. I loved them & miss both of them.
