I am so sorry to hear of Joe's passing. He was a wonderful guy from a wonderful family. Vito and Yolando D'Aurora were parents to a terrific
group of children. We were fortunate that our families became friends and we spent many happy times at their house. My mother Rita was good friends with Yolando and used to take her pizzelles in the years before she passed. The D'Aurora's were a kind, funny, talented, smart and giving family. They were so proud of Joe and I remember hearing of his piloting adventures from Vito. May God Bless Joe, his family and all of the D'Aurora's. love, Maureen, David, Jerry, Eric, John, Carol and Rita France
