SABINA SAYS:

It was wonderful celebrating Gabriela Gennario’s birthday and to see how wonderfully she is recuperating from her recent illness. Of course, her daughter Millie Auletta, and her excellent care have helped tremendously. Also celebrating her birthday was Joe Cigala and my husband Rocky. Her favorite pastime is doing crossword puzzles and she really can solve them all.
