Acknowledgments

Eternal gratitude to my awesome husband, Cosimo, and my brilliant son, Lorne, for their unwavering love and support.

My love and deep thanks to my father, Herbert Louis, and my stepmother, Fran; my two brothers, David and Louis, and my sisters-in-law, Lisa and Beth; my sister-in-law Grace and brother-in-law Johnny; my nephews, Teddy and Anthony; my nieces, Claudia, Stephanie, Madeline, and Alex; my dear Aunt Shirley and Uncle Sol; Uncle Arthur; and my cousins, Sara, Mendi, Barbara, and Wendy.

Last but not least, a heartfelt acknowledgment to the dearly departed whom I think about often: my late beautiful mother, Lillian, who taught me kindness; my late twin brother, Maurice, who taught me forgiveness; my grandmothers, Rose and Ruth, who taught me fashion and to feed squirrels; my Uncle Sol, whom my mother was so proud of; my grandfather Sam, who made me laugh; my late in-laws, Amalia and Giuseppe, who welcomed me with open arms into their home and taught me how to cook.

Thank you, Elizabeth, for all the writing support and endless conversations about my work.

A special thank you to Virginia and Fazia for teaching me to pray and have faith. Yes, you were right—love has no beginning and no end.

A special mention of love for two special souls in heaven: Tyson McRee and Adriano Tassone. You will never be forgotten.
