Eileen, we were ready and happy to welcome you this year in Tesero, Northern Italy, the village where your grandparents lived before emigrating to USA in the early 1900's. We followed your courageous fight during these months through Bud and Mary. Even though we never met, we feel like having shared something with you in this life. Now we think of you like a free, beautiful spirit, full of light and love. CIAO EILEEN!
