    Vale Anna, many nights I spent in the kitchen with you at your restaurant in Moruya in my teens. My sister making Pizzas with Sam and waiting tables and I clearing tables and washing the dishes listing to the intense and beautiful language you spoke with Sam. The stress and the laughter and your sneaky and cheeky smiles and raised eyebrows at me around the corner. Here night after night I saw and smelled your delicious cooking. Often over the years I’ve thought of you and that time, and regretted not taking advantage of your skills and getting some cooking lessons with you when I had the chance, but am very thankful my sister managed to and it’s lovely that we can reminisce about our time working with you. I can still smell your Veal Marsala sweet and sizzling and cleaned so many Anna Specials a favourite dish of the locals. You opened you heart and home to us and treated my sister like a daughter and will be forever remembered fondly in my heart. Rest in Peace.

    I miss you Anna. Such a beautiful lady with a big heart and lots of love and pride for Sam, your son and his wife and grandchildren. I learned a lot from you and loved your, “Ciao, Bella” as I left after visiting.
