This is my mother's page if you would like to see her. I haven't written a bio yet, finding it difficult to do. Will do so as soon as I finish my brother's bio, which is still incomplete after too may years :/.

|Karyn Buckner Garvin||RE: Thank you for the lovely token|
I will :) Momma worked for a stockbroker for years, a very well paid and important position at the time, and gave it all up at the age of 35 to be married for the first time. Quite a different world back then.
Take care!! You are on my friends list too.

|Karyn Buckner Garvin||RE: Thank you for the lovely token|
I remember seeing my mother's yearbook many years ago when she was still alive, but it has disappeared, unfortunately. She also graduated in a January class like your mother, and I was lucky enough to find that yearbook page on Ancestry just today. I think they later moved over to East 68th street (?)because my aunt graduated from New Utrecht H.S. in 1957.
Good to hear from you!

|The Babe||Thank you for the memories|
And I remember growing up, if you were to "pay someone a visit" meaning, physically going to their place, it was "cheap" to show up with cakes from a trucked in location. Like, maybe Entamins, but other packaged cakes and trucked in stuff was frowned on at first as an offering. You had to stop and get something from the bakery everyone knew. Gosh, that seems like so long ago. Again, thanks for the memory gongs!

|The Babe||Yes I remember the Easter Pies|
On Staten Island, a notoriously Italian dominent territory. My family would get insulted if you brought "store-bought" holiday pies, because it meant that you were not into the tradition and "faked." Some of my family did not take it lightly if you presented "faked" traditions. It had to be yours, and there had to be a story behind it, who taught you to make it, what ingredients you used, where you got the ingredients. It's hard to think of how peole thought 30 or 40 years ago in NYC, but it is possible. I remember how much controversey was kicked up by prospective daughter-in-laws who brought store-bought pies for celebrations, and how many sons got "evil-eyes" for placing such obvious fakes on a Staten island Italian table :)

Easter Holiday. Thank you for th eEaster blessings beamed to me! Lots of memories of NYC with seasonal easter cakes and pies, both meat and fruit pies. Is all the snow melted in NYC yet?

Thank you for your kind comments and generous praise. It is very satisfying to realize that by me taking a single picture and getting info from a death certificate then you posting the info on your marvelous and informative blog could have brought about such a reunion. Have a wonderful holiday my dear friend.

You're very welcome, dear heart. Thank you so much for sharing your mom with us. She was a beauty, a soul obviously much loved. My sincerest appreciation to you for allowing us to know her and her legacy. I was honored to find that beautiful cardinal, something I thought she'd appreciate, too. Blessings and hugs to you and yours. :)

|The Babe||I just got back from NYC|
and I was also in maternal ancestor country as well. I was thinking of you and your spirit. NYC is just a 6 hour rocket ride out of Sea-Tac. My "soul" is totally recharged. Standing at the burial sites of my ancestors was a very new emotion for me. You are still an inspiration to me, when I saw that you had added many of your ancesors I, also, felt complelled. New emotions and serious time travelling to what was and what may be :) ~Mario
