Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Monday, July 24, 2000

We went to Laura's Great-Aunt Jo's funeral Saturday morning. It was interesting meeting her Great-Aunt Vic. I just wish we had been a little faster off the ball and gotten to talk to Aunt Jo before she died. We both feel awful about that. One of the things she said when Laura's mom talked to her a couple of weeks ago when she called to ask some questions for us was that she knew more about the De Rosa side of the family than the Saracco side of the family. Now all that's gone. Laura's mom closed that conversation by telling Aunt Jo that she was going to send us down soon to talk to her. I never got to meet her. Aunt Vic was telling us at the wake after the service that Aunt Jo had told her she was excited about the prospect of talking to us, too.
