RE: Tokens for the Children of the Holocaust
Hi EmilyAnn,

I haven't found the children you visited yet, but after reading your bio I am sure that what you left is perfect.

My family and I are grateful for your visits. Thank you so very much.

Flash Kennedy
Dear EmilyAnn,
I am just so pleased to even have my name connected to Flash's page - my help was here this morning (I don't do all of my own computer work because of my eyes), and I had her checking each of my friends' pages for needed BD and Angel Day notes; she saw Flash before I did, and knew I'd love the page. =) I have continued to have so much going on since Mom's loss that I am dreadfully behind in reading about all the fascinating folks on here...anyhow, anybody who drove around in a red convertible and had ties to Brooklyn and Jersey is okay by me, and my mom and dad will probably look him up in Heaven, now, too so they can talk about everything they have in common. ha! I hope that we can get somebody to pick up a couple other pages connected to Flash; I'll keep you updated. Take good care and stay in touch, hugs - RCP and Gannon Blue

Hi Emily Ann,
Sorry for the delay but it has been hectic at work and etc, etc. You are truly a very kind person to say such nice things. It has always been my pleasure to be of help in whatever way I can. I live near Calvary and I am familiar with their custom of placing plastic crosses to mark a grave without a headstone. There are no stones in that Sec 27 now there are 2 crosses. I wonder just how many people are buried there.It is so sad. Take care for now.

Belated thank you for the
connection to Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. Growing up on Staten Island, Bay Ridge had the reputation of being a community as Italian American as Staten Island was. Heh, I can still remember my uncles moaning about "the bridge" going up allowing all the Brooklynites to invade our higher culture on SI. :-) My Uncles would comment on their neighbors being from Brooklyn and not understanding how SI Italians would not, for example, park in front of another person house or play music loud. The parking situation on the island was very ordered, but Brookklynites would not think twice about taking any parking spots they saw, and not respecting SI residential on-street parking lore :-)

It must be exciting to live in a home with history. I can only imagine the warm feeling.

It finally cooled off in Seattle today. It was in the 80's all last week. My apartment faces directly into the setting sun with no shade, so, after a week of complete sunshine, with sunsets later than 9pm, my place gets HOT, but I have one of those portable AC units so I'm not complaining. Its nothing compared to NYC heatwave.

Best to you EmilyAnn, and thank you for the sincere tokens, I appreciate it ~Mario

RE: Thanks to Amber and You
I am always glad to see things tied together- even for strangers.

Hope your move goes smoothly!

Take care.

Your Inspiration is Fresh for me
Thank you Emily Ann for the fresh inspiration by way of the tokens you leave. Yours are always mindful and intelligent, and I thank you for the pleasant, positive feeling I get when I read them. I often think of certain ones through the day. I appreciate that "magic" especially because I originate from NYC and don't get many "sparklers and fireworks" during conversations here in Seattle :-)

Your Blog
I have just returned to NY this AM. You are so very welcome Emily Ann. Your blog about your family is just fascinating. I feel honored about the way you have included my name in your story. Isn't it amazing how Angelina's grandson contacted you!!! I will continue to read your blog as it is so informative. You really have a knack for writing!!!

You are welcome Emily Ann and I enjoyed the visits.

Hey Emily Ann
How are you? Just stopping by to say hello and let you know that I am thinking of you today. Your family history is pretty interesting, like mine. I like to see that I am not the only one who takes family history seriously. Well, saying that on Find A Grave is kinda arrogant sounding :-) Everything with me is good. I wish I could one day actually visit the cemetary your maternal grandma is. It looks so peaceful and respectful. All the best to you EmilyAnn. I admire your history.

Maybe fixed????
Hi, You're right, it seems to be fixing itself, now; I hope that I don't jinx it. ha! I'll make sure that there is at least one token from me, and if you don't mind I will highlight Buster for visits...he deserves many more tokens than he has. =) Have a good weekend - Hugs, RCP and GB

2nd Try
Dear EmilyAnn,
I'm writing to tell you ab9out a problem with leaving tokens on your page(s), but it does not look like you are getting messages from at least me, either...I will see if this went thru and go from there/Hugs, RCP and GB

Buster Kennedy
Dear EmilyAnn,
I wanted to say hi and to let you know that I have no idea what is going on with a page of yours I just visited, Buster Kennedy's...if you go to it, I think you will see - if you see what I see - three tokens right in a row from me, my apologies for that. The screen kept saying "no recipient chosen" (the first time I have ever seen that on here!) and so I would click back and try I can't get the extra tokens off. More than a few of my site friends say that they have continued to have these kinds of problems ever since the crash last week, I wish it would straighten out....but I did want to explain, if I can't get the extras deleted. Hope that all is well with you and yours, and have a nice holiday/Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

RE: Angelina Torregrossa Tortorici
I just returned from a weekend away. Emily, I am so happy for you. To think that the name Anthony Tortorici was unknown to you just one month ago. I believe that the cosmos causes people's lives to touch for a reason. If you need any other help just ask me and If I am able I will assist you. Thank you for all of your kind words.

RE: On behalf of Harry Christian...
You're very welcome, Harry. I love birds and animals so much. The well worded token on my grandma's page is lovely, thanks. :)

Rosa Torregrossa and Angelina Torregrossa Tortorici
I have e-mailed you the above photos at your gmail address. Thank you so much for the credit given on Joseph and Frances Torregrossa's sites.

Torregrossa Rudolfo
You are very welcome Emily. It was my pleasure. I only ask that when you place the photo on the pages of Joseph and Frances that you give me credit. Thanks very much.
In the same row as Rudolfo there were three other Torregrossas. Alfonso (which you already have on this site), Rosa Torregrossa, a beautiful young girl by her photo and a Angelina Torregrossa Tortorici. I took pics of their stones. If you think they are related you may have them. Just give me your e-mail and I will send them. Take care.

RE: spring time greetings
Dear Emily Ann, Thanks for the blessings and prayers. They mean a lot to us.
We paid a visit to Rome and the Vatican during the Holy Week. We visited many cathedrals and churches. We also attended every liturgy at the St. Peter's Cathedral by Pope Francesco. Of course, we have brought Phyllis with us in our hearts during the journey. We are now back to work and studies. With God's blessings, Agatha has received offer from the secondary school which is at the top of her preference list.
I also pray that all things go well with you and your loved ones. My thoughts are with you each day.
Blessings, Betty
