Hi Buckles,

My great niece, Ali Jay, (Bonnie's grandaughter) forwarded this unique Cristiani family photo discovered on Facebook. It's a real keepsake. Bottom row: left to right Lucio's son Chris, my sister Bonnie (center) and Daviso's daughter, Antoinette. Papa's older brother ( a World War I veteran, Zeo, left of my Nona and Papa at her right.

My love and best wishes to you, Barbara and the gang,

Chris and I chummed around on the Cole Show but in those days everyone called him Baline, Italian for Fatso.
He told me that he had been born in Hawaii and since being born an American citizen, was named Americo Hawaiiano Cristiani.
