Nephew Jim Jr.'s Final Notes
Uncle Tony was a very bright and engaging person. His passing at the age of 51 when I was
just starting college stands in my memory as a beacon over the years that reminds me that our
family, while carrying some very favorable genes indeed, also carries those genes that make us
vulnerable to heart ailments later in life.
His wife, Aunt Nora, was an especially pleasant and friendly person, and while Tony was the
first of his generation in the family to pass on, Nora was the last (of the aunts, uncles, and
their spouses). She was especially gracious and appreciative when we nephews would visit her at
home when we had returned to Altoona for holidays.
