Adelina Pecchia

I am grieved in hearing of dear Speranza's passing. Nicky, Connie, Tony and Joanne and families please know that our hearts mourn with you. Our families all grew up together and memories of family outings will always comfort our hearts. Speranza, along with my mom and my aunts, was one of the best cooks I have ever known. There's just something about the way the women from Avella put together traditions and ingredients from our ancestral roots that bonded us all together through the best of times and through the worst of times. Speranza will be truly missed. Adelina Pecchia and Dennis Pringle
