Memories and Condolences

Remember her fondly from her time at Morgan, Lewis. What a fine lady. My sincere sympathy to all her family.
She was an awesome Aunt. Lived right next door when I was young help to give me the one and only surprise party at age 7, The Flintstone set they gave me was incredible. Visiting at the pizza shop her an Uncle Lou had will always be cherished memories for me.Her cookies were the best! Heaven is lucky to have her as much as we will miss her. Your favorite nephew, lol to my other cousins, Jimmy
A lovely woman and excellent cook expressing her love to those she fed through the meals she made. Mrs. Salvato had more recipes in her head than Betty Crocker recorded in her cook books. She loved her family and friends and made many (both young and old were drawn to her kindness) throughout her long life. Strong and kind, proud and humble. May you rest in peace Carmela.
