Well, it is my first mother's day without my mom - Maria "Gigi" Ciccolella Bennett. We all miss her, but it is the fun times, the great support and all the other joys she brought into our lives that I will think about today. Mom was born in Follansbee, West Virginia, married Chuck Bennett, Sr., raised two kids, help run the family business for a bunch of years and died in June, 2010 living in Fairmont, West Virginia. She is a first generation "Ciccolella", both of her parents emigrating from Italy to the US. So, here's to all our mother's who have left this earth to join their heavenly family. One day we will all be reunited into one very large genealogical society.
