Our DeLuca family has bonded us from the late 1880’s in Riano, (Roma) Italy where your Great Grandparents where born. Your father (Ben’s) sister, Cora, is my Grandmother. Both Ben and Cora taught us so much about family and our heritage! I am so pleased to know that through your continued correspondence with me, our heritage continues on!

Through your journey you revealed that true love was your wife
To this is why you so cherished life

Then to expand your love you were blessed with sons
A special gift from above

As my tears flow I so want you to know
That every communication we shared made me grow

This growth taught me
That family tradition is key

I know my Cousin’s love continues giving
Since today is just a glimpse of what tomorrow will be bringing

Thank you so much for being in my life!

Your precious Cousin Judi (DeLuca-Bucci) Crumly
