Sooooooooo sorry to hear about the loss of your brother and the ranch. I had an obsession with horses as a child and my father augie took me and me sisters there. He became very close with you and your brother while we were there and I can remember hanging out with two of the daughters one whose horse was brown with black hair. I think its name was candy. I was about 7 at the time and my greatest pleasure was mucking the stalls and my sister leading me on a horse on the front lawn.thanks for the memories I will cherrish for the rest of my life!!!Hi my family owned Roseland Ranch for 48 years and we had our ups an downs but we were together and we loved every minute.
i sang, danced, ate, worked as hard as I could and meet many people some even crazzier than i was but my family loved every miniute.
My children were born and grew up at the Ranch and learned how to ride, ski , swim, socialize with the guests, ride snowmobiles and four wheelers not to mention skeet and rifle shooting.
On rainy days
I myself miss the Ranch, after all those years i'm not quite sure what i'm suppose to be doing now.
well maybe i'll write a book about my life at the Ranch.
Unfortunately, my brother Sonny died about 2 years ago.
well my family still lives in Stanfordville, ny.
Take care everybody and wait for that book, it should be a best seller.

Hi Chickie, Vinny & I had great times at the Ranch. We were one of the regulars. Vinny was divorced and Tricia his daughter had to be brought home for July 4th one year.. We came back that same evening. You guys held dinner for us - we never forgot that. So sorry to hear about Sonnie. We loved our vacations, and especially your wonderful family. You made us feel a part of your family- Did you ever write your book???

Chickie - So sorry about Sonny - We had wonderful times at the ranch and speak often about our vacations there. My husband was divorced and had his daughter for July 4th vacation - unfortunately she had to attend a function with her Mom and we took her home and returned late the same day - You and Sonny arranged to have dinner waiting for us when we returned late at night - We never forgot that - Tricia is now 42 years old - and remembers her vacations there as well.
You made us feel like family - hey look forward to that book.
Love - Loretta & Vinny S

I thought I knew alot of what happened back in the late 80's through the 90's to the Fichera girls, especially Linda, Christina, & Dyana. But the things I read on here that they explained....I had no idea and it fucking boils my blood. I worked with family and we had our share of arguments but nothing on the level that I read. I knew Joe & Chickie were bastards from "stories" I heard but laying your hands on another persons children is deplorable. I'm sorry if this might offend some of you, but this is the way I feel and I will not apologize for it. I seems that the girls all have happy lives now and that makes me glad.
Is the story about the hot pot of coffee that Joe would throw at family as a discipline true?
I also knew Sonny and felt bad he passed away. The short time I knew him, he was always joking and in a good mood. I never heard him do it, but I did love the "Chickie Boom Boom" story. She was really a pompous ass and deserved all he did to her.
I do remember one day he drove me to pick something up and although we didn't speak much in the truck, he did mention that he sometimes fell asleep while driving....that scared the crapola out of me. I would occasionally peek over to see if he was up, and everytime I did, his right eye looked closed. Now, if he was really sleeping or just messing around, he did get me to say things just to make sure. On the way back, he sent me into a store to buy him candy bars to help "keep him up" for the trip.
I also know how they treated Lily. In my opinion, they never respected her and treated her like she wasn't there. They gave her a room in the back that was tiny. Now she might have liked it, but from what I heard, she wasn't very happy there.
I enjoyed my few visits there, especially hanging out with Linda, Christina, & at the end Dyana. I loved riding the horses, and hanging out in the game room. For someone who didn't know, that place was special but from all I know, I feel so bad for what happened.
If any of the girls are still on here, I often think of you and hope your doing well. I miss seeing you and would like to again one day.
