Personal Notes:
Mary Damico was Joan's mother. I wish I had met her. Joan says my Mom reminded her of her own. These homemade recipes are the best. Experiment with it if it doesn't come out perfectly right the first time.

Joan and Frank were so good to my Mom. They used to pick her up and take her to the 50+ Club at St. Matthew, since I had to work. Frank also drove her for her chemo treatment pretty regularly. What great people!
