    Lovingly remembered. I knew you as a young aunt visiting the crazy Guazzerotti family in Jamaica Plain at Gramnas house Spring Park Ave. My Dad coming over to help Uncle Freddie with projects.

    I have a bunch of notes about your life. We sat on the back porch and we just talked about you and my mom and all the relatives on that side of my mom’s family.

    May you rest in peace

    Aunty my hope is that you are up there in heaven with my Dad bossing you around as usual. Coming to your house on Sundays, walking down Bay Road from our house to yours!! Nana and you and my Dad always with the espresso perking and pastry everywhere. You breaking up the arguments between Nana and anyone !!LOL I know my Dad was your world and you were his also, both of you inseparable growing up and later in life. No matter any sadness you both grew up with you ALWAYS had each other (this is what my Dad would always say). I know now you are in peace with Nana and Daddy and laughing and enjoying yourselves as you did on Sundays together. Julie, Freddie and my pal Tricia…I will always be here for all of you and though I know your kids are all sad…she had so much fun with them and her “nella” Christina!! I will miss the days of all the “Ferrara Family” crazy we all shared and most of all, I will miss you for eternity..with all my love, your niece Debbie
