A question was asked about the "lovely Joan Fiumara" whether she is still alive and doing well. The answer is Yes, and I should know, she is my mother. She fed all of the stray cats,(we had as many as 30), she cared for and babysat for scores of neighbors' children and no matter when you came by she would feed you her home cooked meals. Oh, I forgot, she built and repaired bicycles years ago and had made quite a few other children very happy.

My mom Joan lives in Newton at Liberty Towers. She still cooks and bakes for everyone. She is still so supportive of all her children. She would love to hear from people.

Mary, Michael: Yes I know your dear mother is a wonderful girl. I have loved your mother for about 19 years based merely on her gorgeous personality. Years ago I spoke with her on the phone for the first time and I coughed a little bit and she replied,“How long have you been smoking those cigarettes?”. How funny! She knew I was a smoker due to that little cough so I got a good laugh out of that. And yes I still remember your mother telling me about the bike shop. I remember her mother was living in Rome, NY but she passed away years ago. I wonder if your grandmother made it to her 100th birthday? I found Liberty Towers online –nice place no joking and I like it. Your mother is a mix of Judge Judy and the late Estelle Getty and she is even more hilarious than them. I sure would enjoy hearing from your mother. I have not heard word of your mother in many years so thank you both dearly for answering me. I am one of her many friends from ND.

Mary, Michael: Years ago when I first got acquainted with your dear mother I had several pen pals. And I was young in my 20’s still in college. I was also getting around to lots of different states going to sales seminars. So one day I got a letter from a pen pal asking if I “got around”. Well I was so young and green I thought the pen pal was referring to me getting around to the seminars. So I wrote the pen pal back and stupid me –I told the pen pal I do get around. Well when I told your mother about this she told me the pen pal wanted to know if traveled around bed hopping. I was so shocked I wrote the pen pal back saying I definitely don’t “get around”. Your mother gave me her advice rather often and I still hold her advice close to my heart. Your mother is a mighty precious jewel.
