My deepest sympathy to the family.
Mrs. Tucci was always kind and loving to me, but at the same time never let Linda, Karen and I get away with picking on Micky.
She was always full of the grace of God and enormous dignity.
I have the best childhood memories of her and know she was delighted to be reunited with Scott & Linda.
