"Hi, Aunt Mary Glorioso here. Jimmy, as we called him was my sister Violet's son. He was born in San Francisco, California.  I visited them after he was born.  When they decided to move to Chicago, I was so excited.  What I remember of Jimmy was was a special time in my life.  My sister Vi and I were always close growing up in Gary, Indiana. Jimmy was also special to our Aunt Dorothy, Uncle Joe,cousins Betty and Joe and spent a lot of time with them.  For a while Vi and Jimmy lived in the little back house by Aunt Dorothy.  What I will always remember about him is what a sweet and thoughtful guy he was to his mom and his family.  He has a wonderful and loving son in Jimmy Jr. I will always be greatful his wife Lucia for loving him and taking such good care of him.  He will always be missed.  God bless you Jimmy, you were very special to me.  
Love, Aunt Mary

"My Dearest Jimmy,
You will always be in my heart.  You were a little brother to Joe and me.  We shared so many wonderful times together.  Holidays were so special  You and your Mom and piles of presents.  Your loving Aunt Dorothy picking you up from Nursery School and you were both off on a day of adventure. Your excursions with Uncle Joe. Going to your football games. Remembering how excited you were when your son Jimmy was born and being such an important person in his life, how proud you were of all his accoplishments.  When you and Lucia married you became a part of her large and loving family and Uncle Jimmy to kids who loved you so much. We love you Jimmy.  You will be "Forever Missed.""
