"Mama" has died

Nancy De Benedittis, the matriarch of the family that runs Mama's Deli and also Leo's Latticini, in Corona, has passed away, at age 90. I always got a kick out of going in there and seeing her sitting at her little table in the corner, surveying everything going on in the deli. It was wonderful how her daughters included her in what was going on, even her later years. RIP, Mama.
