Back in November of last year, my father took the family to a pizza shop in Pelham Gardens. It was ran by an Italian family. The husband and wife were hospitable and kind. The wife, Anne, shared with us a story about her son:
…My son, he loves me. Both of my kids love me but my son shows it differently than my daughter. He kisses and hugs me everyday. Every time he leaves to go to work and every time he comes home. No matter what times he comes home, he always make sure he tells me he loves me.
Of all the stories she shared with us, I think I enjoyed that one the most. I see so much love there. To me, the guy who has love and respect for his mother would have love and respect for his wife.
Vito, the husband, also shared stories. His were more about the restaurant business:
When I cook, I don’t have an agenda. I’ve been in the restaurant business for 40 years and had this business for 22 of those years. I will retire soon. When I retire, I am going back to Italy. The life style here is good for work but not good for old people. I love Europe and the history. When I retire, Italy will be where I go.
