    Rest in Peace Aunt Chickie.  Now the entire Rigoni family is once again together, including Uncle Nick and Aunt Florence, and you are with Uncle Tony and Stephanie.  So many memories go through my mind of you.   I can hear your laughter and remember your wit and it makes me smile.  Love and Prayers for a feeling of Peace and Comfort to all of my Cousins in the loss of their Mom.
