Cousins, I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Blod. Responsiblilities require that I remain in Myrtle Beach this week and will be unable to be in Bellaire. As I grow older, the most revered memories are those that I remember of those days on 26th street and the time I spent with our family. I remember walking into any one of three homes in one house and feeling loved no matter who’s house I was in. My employees know each and every one of you as I brag as to how close a family we were. As we become the oldest of our family, my only wish is that we were still living on 26th street as the Marinacci familia. Although I cannot be there physically, be assured that my heart will be with you four. I miss and love you guys.

Dear Vince, Dick, Freddie and Jerry:

Steve and I were very sorry to hear about your mom. I did not know her well but Steve always talks about how great it was on 26th Street and mentions you all often,along with the other kids he grew up with since he was a kid. You all were into some crazy, action packed, old-time fun and it is hilarious to hear him tell some of his stories that involved you brothers. Funny how we look back and on memories of childhood and early adult life and wish we could all go back for a moment in time. We did not appreciate it when we were young but now we know those were the best times of our lives. Stay safe, you Marinacci boys, and we think of you with your laughter but we also mourn with you.

I will never forget that laugh of hers. I loved it when I stayed overnight and she cooked me a great breakfast in the morning, She was always @ that stove! I’ll never forget her and I know she’s in heaven partying with Uncle Freddie, my Mom and Dad and the rest of the family we all miss so much. They’re our guardian angels watching over us. Till we meet again, Rest in Peace Aunt Blod. I love you. Angie and family
