Such a short sentiment that speaks VOLUMES. It means so much to me, because she alone has provided one of my life’s most memorable evenings. Barbara ran a small hotel on Lago di Garda. And though she was related to our good friend Steven, she took that friendship to a whole new level as she entertained her family and Steve’s 4 ramshackle friends at the largest family table, set outside, the warmth of the earth floating around your ankles, the lightest breeze coming off the lake, with an endless march of glorious Italian fare, plenty of wine and spirited conversation. An evening that didn’t end until the crickets went to bed and the boys went skinny dipping.
