Personal Notes:
I will never forget going to Jo and Tom Volpe's house when they were first married. They lived down the street from Grandma Cassara's house on Sickles Avenue. I would walk to their house and visit with them in the summer, since I lived on Lockwood Avenue, just two blocks away. Jo would have either a lemon or strawberry chiffon pie in her refrigerator, and I was always served a piece. I started making them years later when I was married. I had stopped making them over the years, but I will have to be sure to make them this summer for my own family.
