  1. Nella Pini was another grandmother to me. She was always baking wonderful treats, unloading what seemed like her entire garden of vegetables on my family, simply because my brother and I were .growing boys.. Just like every grandma, she wanted to make sure that people had enough, ate enough, and loved enough. It was never enough to just give my brother and I a few dollars to shovel her driveway in the winter: she gave us cookies and cocoa, and little extras, too. That\’s what I remember of Nella Pini: a big heart in a little body with love enough for everyone. Keith Russo (Formerly of) Hamden, CT

  3. Nella was very much like my own mother. She baked wonderful Italian treats for us, she was never too busy to sit and chat, and she frequently shared the produce from her garden. I especially remember the fresh basil she would give me, which I put into the gravy I made. I loved you dearly, Nella, because you were such a beautiful person. I will remember you always !
