A final lobster roll

Bruno spent his final weeks surrounded by his family, eating a final lobster roll, listening to Tchaikovsky symphonies, Strauss waltzes, and Gershwin tunes, and he watched Red Sox games. On the easel in his studio is a small canvas of a mountain laurel grove in his back yard. Though unfinished, it is a lovely painting.

Take THAT, Jola!

Memoriam In Loving Memory of my beloved son Alan Ferraro I'm sorry I did not have the opportunity to see you before God called. I tried but your wife, Jola, would not let me talk to you on the telephone or she would not let me in the house. She forbid me and the family from coming to your memorial mass. I know you reached out to me, I'm sorry we had interference from Jola. You will always be in my heart. Love you always, Mom, Sarah Ferraro (H/T to Peter Elikann)

The scamp!
