My mother was an all time comedien. Always joking or pulling stunts. Everyone took her with a grain of salt, she could insult someone and they would just say " oh that's just Lena."
She would also give you the shirt off her back. I remember she had a cleaning lady from Mexico more than once. Joe fired them because mom would make them lunch and give them things for the family. Joe said he was paying them to do nothing.
When I visited Corpus I often had to sleep on the floor or at Gracie's cause there were strange people in my home my mom was giving shelter to for awhile. That was my mom------Lisa Agostino
