This story was relayed to me by Virginia Libertini McElwee about her grandmother Isabella. Virginia's dad, Dominick, took his family to Little Italy for dinner on year on Mother's Day. They then went to Isabella's house to visit and she raised cain with Dominick, how dare him go to Little Italy and have dinner there and not at her house. Virginia thought it very comical that her dad was being fused at by his mother. Dominick and his family visited Isabell every Sunday.
