The Case of the Quibbling Siblings…

Fran Morley of the Association of Personal Historians brought the obituary brou-ha-ha of the Anello family to my attention recently. (How did she know about my secret addiction to obituaries–the shortest form of personal history?)

What caught the media’s attention in Josie Anello’s obituary? How about this line…  “She is survived by her Son, ‘A.J.’, who loved and cared for her; Daughter ‘Ninfa’, who betrayed her trust, and Son ‘Peter’, who broke her heart.”

Fran encouraged me to blog about it on the APH blog–which I did–and also commented on the Huffington Post. Read on… or view video on the Huffington Post.
