  • In 2005 I visited the family in Italy who invited Jack into their 12th century home in Fabriano to play cards and have dinner and generally chat. The Uncle of Diva Faggeti spoke English. I visited with Diva and her gr niece Daniela & Daniela's son Luca. They had photos of our family and memories of my grandmother Agnes May James sending them presents including a quilt which Daniela remembered. They were wonderful people who contributed to my father's well being while fighting in Italy. And I am still in touch with them. Rita
