  4. Mark, I have great memories growing up on Park Avenue with your family as wonderful neighbors. Our moms sitting in the backyards chatting, rides to swim team practice or borrowing a cup of sugar from each other. Rosie knew how much I loved her spaghetti and I looked forward to her phone call letting me know she saved some for me. Hold on to your wonderful memories. Praying God comforts you all in the days and weeks ahead. We are keeping you in our prayers.

Mark , our mothers would get mad at all of us when were misbehaving growing up but Rosie never cease to amaze me , she would give us hell for whatever we did wrong and then make us spaghetti and delicious meatballs . God bless all !! But she is at peace now with Big Vic and Vic jr.

  6. Mark,
    So sorry for your loss. I was real friendly with your Mom when we lived in the apartment.
    She taught me how to play cards and knit. She was special.

  8. Your mother was a beautiful lady with a great sense of humor. My mother Adeline grew up on the same street as the Cioti Family and was best friends with Carmella. Later Rosie married Victor a Strengari/Basilio Cugino! That was back in the “good ole days in Kennett” where everyone knew everyone. Wishing happy memories of the past cheer you.
