    So sorry to read about the death of my Aunt Angie. Although we had not been in contact for many years, she was always special to me. I have so many memories of her from my childhood: being at her home in Wanaque with her and Uncle Pete, eating wonderful food and then playing with the kids, and of course all those Sunday dinners at Grandma Pizzi’s house. My condolences to Peter and Jo-Anne and grandchildren.
