Dinner and Soccer

Tonight we were invited to dinner and to watch a soccer game.  Anna Rosa is a member of our branch and Sorella Jefferies is her visiting teacher.  She and her husband, Davide, had us for dinner.  Anna Rosa prepared the most delicious ravioli we have ever tasted.  We also had piadina and Sorella Jefferies brought chocolate chip cookies.  We got to meet their son, Manuel, who is 24 years old..  Their son, Alessandro, was tragically killed in a car accident when he was 20 years old.  That was 12 years ago and every year the community puts on a soccer tournament in his honor because he loved to play soccer.  We went to the soccer game after dinner.  It was a beautiful evening with a cool breeze.

  1. Very cool. I'm glad you were able to support their family and go to the game.

    That is one big pan of ravioli!

  2. That is really neat that the community does that in honor of their son.
