Cugina! (as we say in my Italian class) JR was one of my mother's (Lucille) favorite cousins! He was very helpful to my mother and father in her last illness. We had attended a few Riggi-fests before Mom became ill, but the last few years of her life, her energy level wasn't very good and she wasn't up to the heat.
I remember going out to the farm and Red taking us around on his chores. What ever happened to the farm? I live in Forest Park, near Oak Park, and work downtown. Where do you live?
