Click on the picture to hear a beautiful story about Antonia Kersting Salomone's trip to America with her mom and dad, and the excitement she and her family felt as the boat docked in New York Harbor on 7/31/1954. Pictured are Toni, her dad, and her dad's sister, Nellie. (Toni's mom is taking the picture.) Dad was seasick for the entire ten-day trip, but that was soon forgotten in port as they embarked on their new life in America.

special day for Barbara Tamer and Pat Tomasetti, 11/30/1957.

Here's a cute story about how Gaetana Parrini and Pasquale Tomasetti met. (Click on picture.) It was NOT love at first sight! Ahhh, but you just never know...

It's part of my grandma's legacy. It's my legacy. I'm passing it on.
