Memories Timeline


  1. Uncle Peter, we will miss you! So many great memories and disagreements over dinner, one that sticks out is that you insisted that soccer is better than baseball, among many others. But one visual that I remember as a child, and will for the rest of my life is every time after leaving your and Aunt Filomena’s house, we would drive backwards out of the driveway slowly, and you would walk slowly in front of our car following us until we took off, I remember your walk, I remember your face, and I remember you waving goodbye. This vision is how I will remember saying goodbye. We love you Uncle Peter!
