I was very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. It is always a sad moment to lose a mother. I had spoken to your mom last February to inform her of my mom's passing. She sounded hale and hearty despite some aches and pains. She lived a long and healthy life for most of her years and you are grateful to have had her these many years. I remember the good times when my mom and dad would visit your house in Exeter and bring me along with my sister. I will remember your mom in my prayers and wish health and happiness to your family.

Dear Diana and Family,
I'm Marco Muratti, I live in Pisotia (Italy) and I'm grandson of Umberto Begliomini and Eurosia Bettiol.
My grandfather Umberto was cousin of Vidia, he died in 2003 and my grandmather is died this year in July.
Vidia every festivity wrote a letter to my grandparents, being among the few remaining relatives in Italy, and my job was to translate his beautiful words of affection. She was an amazing person!
My wife and I have had the good fortune to meet Vidia in our journey in 2004 in the States: to always remember the warmth and sweetness of the person that we have known.

We will miss Vidia!

Condolences from all Begliomini family of Cireglio, Pistoia.

Sorry for my bad english.

Marco Muratti
