Raised in Bucks County, PA and Northeast Philadelphia in a large Italian/Irish family, with roots that stemmed from Yeadon, Mayfair, Philadelphia, and Upper Darby Twp PA. (Irish heritage) and Lambertville, NJ , Bronx NY, and Roma Italy. (Italian side).
Along with a love of architecture, I had an early fascination with statuary and the beauty of granite monuments. Hence: i'm quite at home in a cemetery.
I'm fascinated with the history and the familial connections you can find by researching one's past.
Since 1981 I've lived primarily in S.E. PA, and as well a short period in NY, and currently part-time in Rowan County, NC.
I am a member and contributor to the Friends of Laurel Hill, a National Historic Landmark and one of the Country's first cemeteries to be planned as a park-like meeting place, on the outskirts of Center City Phila.
I have friends and family all over the world, and in the following pages you'll see where some of them have found their final resting places. I'd like to think our friendship transcends our time here on Earth!
