    Enjoy the reunion in heaven with Uncle Pete and all the rest of the family, Aunt Dottie. You were always so kind to everyone. I still have my Mary Poppins bracelet you bought us when you took Donna and I to Boston on the train to see the movie when I was 7. I will never forget you.

    Dear Dottie,
    I’m so glad I got to see you recently. You were such a pleasure to talk with.

    Seeing you reminded me of so many of our relatives…the Champas and the Spinazolas as well as the Diorios.

    May you rest in peace after a well-lived life.
