Anthony, Hollis, and Aaron at his bar mitzvah

 
The last thing I told my Uncle David was that we were off Fran’s grandson’s bar mitzvah; he lit up with interest.  My Uncle was a huge supporter of Israel, and I think would have very much liked to rise up from his hospital bed to attend the bar mitzvah with us – I know Fran would have made room for him at the table.  What an honor it was to be present at Aaron’s special day.

Ernesto Adame
Ernesto and Kate met at work, and were instant friends.  She invited him to my 40th birthday bash, where we roasted a whole pig.  He and I had yet to meet, and unable to come, he nevertheless sent a present.  Ernesto gave me volume one and two of Los Panchos greatest hits, music I love, but of equal importance, he gave them to me in a Madeline gift bag – which I still have, and which Kate yearly places something in, for my birthday – which always reminds me of Ernesto – the man with the perfect taste!  

 

 

Marigold Marsh, second from the left, and a few members of her dear family
As a child, Marigold knew my Mother; as an adult, she spent years looking for my Mother, and finally found her on these pages, last year, when I wrote about my Mother on Mother’s Day!

 Lori and Super Julie Bell
Kate and Julie grew up on the same street in Ohio, and reconnected in Florida, thanks to their father’s.  When preparing to meet Julie, I asked about her, and was told that she quite literally super human — the best at absolutely everything!   Julie has lived up to her reputation, and we have found Lori to be equally super.

Kate Scarcella and Helen Patton. 
My Aunt Helen who was a ‘snowbird’ spending winters in Florida, and the rest of the year in Ohio, told Kate and me, that she had always wanted to go to the Kennedy Space Center, which she yearly passed, on her way between homes.  She and Uncle Paul, had never made it there, so Kate and I decided to take her, in 1992.
