Linda Alessi: Ann, the general
My earliest recollection of my eldest sister, Antoinette, was of a grown woman in her 20s. In our family of eight siblings, we all had our unique personalities and positions. My sister, Edith, was undoubtedly the heart of the family, Gloria, the spirit, but Ann was the strength and matriarch. The brothers also completed the mosaic of our loving and exuberant clan in their own way.
