Aunt Vera

Vera Scocchio

My Aunt Vera passed away on Dec. 14, 2015.  She was 95 years old.  When growing up I didn’t get to see Aunt Vera very often, so I didn’t know her very well back then.  After my parents moved to Florida Aunt Vera eventually moved there also, so I got to know her much better. She was a wonderful person with a good sense of humor.  Every time I went to visit my parents I looked forward to seeing Aunt Vera also. One of my best memories is a trip we took down there just before Christmas one year.  We went over to Aunt Vera’s for dinner.  She had made braciole.  I had never seen this before, and I had no idea what it was.  I had to ask my father what it was (because it looked kind of strange).  It was absolutely delicious!  Aunt Vera was a very good cook, which I’m sure she learned from her mother.  I still make braciole to this day, and my eldest granddaughter always asks for it.  Aunt Vera, yours, and Grandma’s, legacy still lives on!
