  • A child is suppose to have no greater Love for his Mother but there was one equally Loved, my Boston Mother Auntie J (Jeanie). Auntie J is now home with Uncle Dom and all God’s family watching over us that we may also join them when God calls. I look forward to joining all my Boston relatives again here and in Heaven to continue some of the greatest times I have ever enjoyed. May God watch over us all and guide us home. God Bless you All!

  • Aunt Jennie was my mother’s younger sister. Fred, Steve, Joe and I loved to visit her and Uncle Dom and sleep in their basement i.e. the Pit. We admired the house that Uncle Dom built and enjoyed our family visits to Boston and their visits to California. My two sons called Aunt Jennie the Grandma ViVi because she looked so much like my mother, Vincenza. I was lucky to travel to Andover twice a year and always spend a day with her which included Lobster rolls and Montillio pastries! She was a terriffic aunt and godmother–kind, generous, intelligent, and gracious–truly beautiful inside and out. Being a woman of faith and strength, she had an immeasurable impact on all who knew her. We will remember her fondly and miss her deeply. Aunt Jennie is now with our Heavenly Father, and she is healthy and happy and with her brothers and sisters who have gone before her; the Pandolfo clan reunited! God bless and keep all her family and may we live by her shining example.

  • God Bless Jennie. She Was A Sweet an Caring Woman
