Ha ha you wised up...many people fall for the same sad story from Hill so don't feel bad.
The only good thing that Hill did was pitch a story that happened to create one of our favorite movies "Goodfellas"... so I guess…"
"Leonard, You know I was talking to my 95 year old aunt and she says this Italian way of doing things is called "Bella figura". Appearances, pride, respect, loyalty to famiglia and not revealing our true emotions to outsiders is all part of…"
I was born in Jersey but live in California. From a very early age I learned about gangsters who were running Cosa Nostra only blocks from the house my father grew up in. I would like to learn more about these dangerous men.
UR fasination w/ the mob apparently did noy extent to marriage to an Italian? Mine either? I grew up in Bklyn around Johny Roberts area of influence and I remember his demise and the stated reason therefore! From what I was told in those days he was quite the gentlemen and generous to a fault but not so he actually forgive one who did not make good. In the end, so I'm told, politics killed him. One could invoke the old sayin about he who lives my the sword but I doubt that maxim inasmuch as two many others lived to a ripe old age and died in their beds so to speak. Anywat just in the reministic mood and thought I'd drop a line or two. Ciao.
Hi. Thanks for the invite. How's everything going out there in Cali.? I'm as well as can be expected. The old bones hurt here in New York but I'm a procrastinator. Must move out to a dryer climate. Just got to put my mind to it. How is your dad? He seems to know thee life from back in the day. Would that we sat down together for a moment I bet the conversation would be endless about the old days and ways of our people. Anyway, please give him my regards and you stay well as well as yours. Ciao Lenny
Thanks for the add. Yes the DeCavalcante name is in many places. LOL Papa was pretty popular and even was on the second commission. He had a close relationship with Joe Bonnano for many years.Thank you also for the information on where to trace my family. I have needed to do that for a long time but did not know how or where to start.
