Linda & Family,
My sincere condolences go out to you during this tough time for you all. We all shared many a good time on Wadsworth Street with Frankie and Carla and your Dad and Mom too. We had a real good time back then. Rest in peace Fannie and be greeted by the rest of your family in Heaven.

My family, the Spencer family, lived next door to the Passafiumes on Wadsworth St. way back in the 1950s and very early 60s. I have some wonderful memories as a child of Fanny - her bright and vivacious personality, her red hair, and her unbelievable Italian food. It was a great time. My sincere condolences to Linda and the family. I remember those times with great fondness. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I know you will miss her tremendously.
Chris Spencer Dalpan, 108 Rockwood Road, Syracuse
