Bonka, you are SO missed. At the Altar, it just doesn't feel the same without you there. I still talk to you, feel you around me and always want to make you proud. I see my mom with the boys and the relationship they are creating and I can't help but think about the bond between you and I that was there for SO long. I love you, miss you and am so happy that our family has remained close after you left us. I will make sure we create new memories and that my boys will always remember our BONKA. Love you.

St. Joseph 2011
First of all, I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments in regards to this family tradition. My grandmother would have been SO proud of this years' Altar, that's for sure! My mom and her friends/family did an excellent job! On the left is the tribute to the "old Italians" that put this on each year, sadly all of them have passed. Just wanted to share some Altar pics with all of you, a picture of SOME of our very large, Italian family and a picture of my boys...Jacob LOVED the spaghetti and Justin LOVED the cookies...ah, so different!
