Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thought for June 2015: Without the sunshine and the rain, there'd be no flowers or grain.
By learning from the good times and the bad times in life we harvest food for our mind and spirit. We learn to discern the fragrance of sweetness and treasure the memory after the flower is gone. This is how we can grow strong through the seasons of life.

Special thanks go to all visitors who have tokened my Mom's memorial and those of her birds. The Cardinal (Red Bird) has special meaning to me. In my Mom's journals, which I found after her passing, she attempted to create fairy stories in which a Red Bird would appear at mysterious ways and times to help maidens in distress. Thanks to all who took the time to note that and leave these special tokens at her memorial.

REGARDING PHOTOS: Please remember that I am the copyright holder for the photos of my Mom and Dad, Maternal and Paternal Grandparents and Paternal Aunt, as well as Baby Gerald. If you copy these photos to your family tree I request a link back to the memorial and credit as noted at the memorial. This is all I am requesting.

For photos belonging to other FindAGrave members please check their Memorial Manager page for their position on usage of photos.

Any photos that have been provided by the Kennedy family members must also be credited. Failure to properly acknowledge the source of the photos will result in my notifying the family members.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT FOR THE JEWISH RELATIVES IN MY LINE the Menorah, Star of David, or photos of pebbles are the traditional expressions of a visit to the beloved departed's resting place. A candle can also be used. I appreciate all previously left tokens but recently I have been advised to request what is appropriate for this faith.

In all matters of kinship: If we are related in anyway, then contact me by email and provide a link at Ancestry or some details about your family line, or perhaps your memorials here at FindAGrave.

Transfer Requests: You must follow the established FindAGrave procedure and request transfer using the Send A Correction feature. Again do not use the Public Message board for this purpose. I do not transfer my relatives unless you are closer in kinship than I am. I will gladly transfer memorials of those not related to meand am willing to do so outside of guidelines provided your request shows a sincere desire to take over Stewardship of the memorial. Please supply enough details to help me make such a decision.

PURPOSE OF THE MESSAGE BOARD: I use the Message Board strictly for messages between members and to exchange greetings. Please do not make flowering requests here, especially repeat ones.

PURPOSE OF THE MOURNING, GRIEF AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FORUM: This is the best place to request tokens for your beloved departed. Be sure to include the link when you make a request there.

Please visit my Mother's Memorial: Emily Leatrice Serrapede

My Mother's Cousin and Best Friend as she grew up: Rita Errico,
Rita's husband: Joseph Bishelany

My Father's Memorial: Frank Jesse Torregrossa

I appreciate all the good
feelings shared over the last 2 years. I made the mistake of using my real name in the beginning here, went onto the forum, my opinions on politics prompted Find A Grave members to look me up persoanlly, and there are some very angry people here. I couldn't stand for the thought of hateful people from those forums attacking me persoanlly, or my family.

I respect your family and feelings here on Find A Grave, but know, there are not just people here who are nice, like you. There are some very hateful, anonymous people on the forums who attacked me persoanlly. I will always remember you and your spirit EmilyAnn. Renato and Leola's son.

My mother

This is my mother's page if you would like to see her. I haven't written a bio yet, finding it difficult to do. Will do so as soon as I finish my brother's bio, which is still incomplete after too may years :/.

RE: Thank you for the lovely token
I will :) Momma worked for a stockbroker for years, a very well paid and important position at the time, and gave it all up at the age of 35 to be married for the first time. Quite a different world back then.

Take care!! You are on my friends list too.

RE: Thank you for the lovely token
I remember seeing my mother's yearbook many years ago when she was still alive, but it has disappeared, unfortunately. She also graduated in a January class like your mother, and I was lucky enough to find that yearbook page on Ancestry just today. I think they later moved over to East 68th street (?)because my aunt graduated from New Utrecht H.S. in 1957.

Good to hear from you!

Thank you for the memories
And I remember growing up, if you were to "pay someone a visit" meaning, physically going to their place, it was "cheap" to show up with cakes from a trucked in location. Like, maybe Entamins, but other packaged cakes and trucked in stuff was frowned on at first as an offering. You had to stop and get something from the bakery everyone knew. Gosh, that seems like so long ago. Again, thanks for the memory gongs!
