    Dear Family:
    We were so sorry to hear about Cousin Sylvia’s passing from this earth. When we visited Rochester on a few occasions she always came to visit us at Aunt Joanne’s house. She was always kind and a cousin with few words. However, we do remember every time we visited she would always ask, “How are youse guys?” Of course, “Youse” is a charming Eastern Idiom and is not heard out here on the West Coast. We will always remember her for her kindness and warmth. Our family was very lucky to have her as a relative. We were lucky to have known her. In sadness, Cousin Frank & Jane Tripi.
