Jamie, I am so sorry. I have very fond memories of meeting your mother in San Francisco. I remember a lovely lady with a lot of character (in a good way, of course). Christine and I send our deepest condolences. Love, Chuck

Dianne and family - My deepest condolences for your loss. I enjoyed visiting with Mrs. Maddaloni when she visited the Russell Sage Library, and during the overnight I spent at Dianne's house when I was evacuated for Hurricane Irene.

Your mom was a remarkable woman. Generous, kind, she welcomed your friends into her home like we were family, and cooked like we were too. Such an inspiration for future generations. She raised 5 beautiful girls. May she Rest In Peace.

I have so many great memories of Lucy, going to Saint Joseph's in Montreal, walking all over DC, touring the Boeing plant in Seattle, and her letting me win at Sorry while I was visiting Jaime Hollywood. Dianna, Angie, Linda, Jamie and Jean, thank you so much for letting me into your family. You will never know what that has meant to me. Your mother was a great woman and I am glad I got to know her. I will miss her greatly.
