    Dear Jack, Mary Jo, Nancy and Dick,

     I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Aldo's death. Somehow, neither my brothers nor I knew about this . We have such fond memories of DeBenedetti/Martinotti get togethers. Lots of laughs, lots of love and of course, lots of food. Deepest sympathy and much love... Judy Martinotti
