I was in Western Pennsylvania since Saturday for the funeral service and burial of my great-great aunt, Adella Vincenti, who passed away earlier last week at the age of 88 in her home in Burgettstown, PA.
Aunt Della, the window of my Uncle Remo, was a kind and good-hearted woman. I will long remember her distinctive voice and belief in perseverance. (When faced with challenging news, Aunt Della would often say with a sense of optimism, “Hey, what are you doing to do?”)
Before the steady and I got married in June, Aunt Della sent us a very nice card and wedding gift. I’m ashamed that, due to our procrastination, she never saw a thank-you note from us. It’s a lesson learned on my part. I hope that, from a vantage point in heaven, Aunt Della knows how much I appreciated her gift and all of her acts of kindness.
May she rest in peace.
