  1. There are times when I wonder why I feel such a connection to these people, especially since they are my family by marriage. In this instance, I understand! Luigi died in my hometown, Sonoma, CA. I grew up there, went to school there, graduated from high school in 1966 there, and both of my parents are buried there. They are my family in every way that counts!
