71 years ago today my Nonne (grandmother named Rosa Maria) and aunt, who was 11 months old, arrived at Ellis Island from Italy. They didn't speak any English. The only person they knew was my Nonno who was in Ohio sick. With the help of a relative they made their way to Ohio. They learned English because no one catered to them. Today I taught my Maria to make meatballs. What I would give to have had her here today.
