Family and friends,

Thanks for visiting our website. For some time, I have been thinking how Jean and I could pass on the many memories of our life. As with many families, there are boxes and boxes of pictures holding treasures of memories that may never see the light of day. What a shame if these treasures are never shared with family and friends and the treasures just gather more dust!!

Many people use Facebook and other social media sites to share their stories. I considered using such sites but did not believe any were robust enough to tell our story. As Jean and I started looking through the many boxes of pictures, we discovered many we had forgotten about and some we did not remember at all. Click here to see a picture of the DeLeonardis family. Now that our 8-mm movies have been transferred to DVDs, I am in the process of learning how to edit them in Pinnacle Studio so I can add audio and informational slides. Our 2,300 slides have been transferred to digital format for use on the website. I finally finished scanning hundreds and hundreds of photographs left to us by our parents. It will be a challenge deciding which ones to publish on the website.

In order to provide relatives and friends with access to images on this website, I included a link on the main menu  where you will be able to select images to download to your computer. Click here to go to that page. If you see a picture you would like to have and it is not available for download, send me a note by clicking here.

We recently moved to our new home in Mount Juliet, Tennessee so we have the opportunity to visit more often with our four sons, six grandchildren and great grandson. If you like to see our new home, click here.

Jean and I hope you enjoy viewing our memories as much as we enjoyed living them and continue to live them. If you have suggestions for improving this presentation or have pictures to share, click here to let me know. If you see a page with words that look like Latin, just ignore them That means I have not had time to complete the writing. 

Best wishes for good health.
