    Dear Paul and Uncle Bob’s family,
    This is Rita ( La Vertue ) Buono. I am Aunt Paula’s niece. I am so dis-heartened to read of Uncle Bobs passing. I sent him a Christmas card and I never got one back from him. I called his number in Jan or Feb and it was disconnected. I called the Malden housing and asked if anyone could give me any answers to no avail. Today I mentioned to my sisters, Annette and Linda that I hadn’t talked with Uncle in some time. My sister suggested to. Look up recent obituaries. To my dismay, Uncles came up. I am so very sorry that none of us were in attendance. I hope my cousin Paul is doing okay. If anyone could contact me I would appreciate it. My phone is 617-567-6156. I am George and Lorraine’s daughter. Thank you in advance.
