Well guys, this one 'bout wore us out. There was a lot of stuff going on in the background for this one and if not for our "nuclear support" it might not have happened at all.
First and foremost, we thank our husbands, Dom and Bobby, and Carrie's kids, Joelle and Kyle for their "volunteered" support. Next we have Annie, Ginny (Boggio) & Joe, Judie (Meyers) & Nate, for listening to us cry every day. Karen Tantillo and Kristen Policastro--whatever we ask you to do, you're there. This year, we also extend our thanks to Allyson DeSomma, Dolores Warchol, Glen Bariso, Chris Boggio, Dolores and Joey Miller (ain't that just like me to invite you "over" and then put you to work? Kind of reminds me of all the Christmases you helped us put the rooms back together at my Mom and Dad's) and Jerry Manzetti. Lastly, we thank all of you--the "old faces" and the new, for joining us in all our endeavors. It's for you we do it at all!!!! If I've forgotten anyone specifically, you know we love you, anyway.
I also take this opportunity to congratulate the Class of 1973 on their 30th anniversary, and all the other people from years ending in 3's and 8's on their decade or 5-year milestones.
Jilley and Carrie
