Recording memories for future generations

Celebrating birthdays with a life story » TheBirthdayPartyPhoto

The photo above is the earliest memory my mother has of her birthday: Her fifth birthday party. She is front and center at the family dining table, which still exists. Her baby brother Louis J. Camuti Jr. is being held behind her on the left by Nonna (Biggi) Landi. My grandmother, Alexandra Landi Camuti, 30, is standing third to the right from the birthday girl.
