So sorry to hear that Uncle Sud has passed away. He was a great man, very caring and giving. His and Aunt Sis's home was my first taste of real Italian food and it was awesome. Uncle Sud was always happy, always had a smile on his face. He will be missed.

I was honored and privileged to know both Mary Helen and Sud,having been first introduced when I was a nurse, working for home health. I ALWAYS felt welcomed into their home. I continued our relationship,often visiting even after Mary Helen passed away. I visited Sud recently when he was in the rehab unit at Evan. His mind was as sharp as ever, and I will forever cherish that visit. He truly loved his family and was SO APPRECIATIVE of everything Jim,Jeff,and Tina did for him. You guys were amazing! What a loss for all of us who knew him!

Joe and I are sending our sincere condolences on the passing of Sud. I consider it an honor to have been acquainted with such a fine family. Your dedication and caring of your parents was a testament of your love and respect. I was thankful that I was able to come into their home to help Mary Helen and then continue to visit with Sud which was so enjoyable. It was certainly a privilege getting to know them.

naturally like your website but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will surely come again again.

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
