    To Dante, Debbie, Sue and family. I remember your Mom as being so nice to all of us. A few parties at your house, Jim Wiand and I stopping by on weekend nights – you were out – and your Mom would make these enormous triple deck sandwiches. Now that’s where I began to really appreciate a good deli sandwich. I know there are many wonderful memories of her and my thoughts are with you, family and friends.
