I hold dear many memories while growing up in Derwood Park and meeting my first true friend, Patty. Patty's mom (Mrs. DePietro) was an amazing woman, mother and excellent cook. Sunday dinners were the best and the clean up seemed like it took days as there was always plenty for anyone who happened to stop by unannounced. I had the pleasure of attending a birthday celebration in her honor and she was just beautiful. May you rest in peace Mrs. DePietro and may your family find comfort in the days to come. Love, Michelle Palladino Wilson

I wanted to share this poem that mom wrote in 1949. This is our mother, her heart and soul, the faith and love she has for her Lord, our God. We were truly blessed to have such a special, loving, and caring mother. Her spirit, so pure and bright, will be with us always. - Maureen DePietro
