Dear Pippo - you have always helped many and I will miss reading your responses. Yes we will keep in touch. I was reviewing past email and found one from about 14 years ago (wow-time flies) which was your response to a copy of my first request to the Province Archives in Potenza for a copy of my paternal grandfather's Lista di Leva. You gave me your seal of approval and added your phone number in case I had further questions or needed other help. Sometime after that I remember receiving the wonderful pic of you and your wife as Mr + Mrs Babbo Natale surrounded by snowmen. One of your children who was a teacher was in the pic too and you were all smiling. You gave good cheer to the school children. I put it online in a folder on one of my sites and shared it on this message board. I still have it as pippo_babbo-natale_santa.jpg. The digital image you sent was and is very heartwarming. At that time I phoned you and told you it was very uplifting and cheerful. If you have the same number I will call and give you mine. We spoke for a while on the phone and you told me about your family Christmas Cheer occasions for which you often would grew a nice beard so you could fit the part of Babbo Natale. Recently I have enjoyed your lovely presentation: "La Notti di Natale" a speaking poem by you Bravo !
