    My best memories (and there are many) revolve around large family gatherings where Camille was always the "best cook in the house". When marrying the Mongo family, Camille made me feel like I married the Tartaglione family as well. She always greeted with a smile, hug and kiss...don't forget that sweet kiss! She will always carry a special place in my heart and will always have a special few pages in my family cookbook. Camille was always willing to feed the world with her fantastic cooking that was nothing but filled with love. Thank you for all the memories, as they will be cherished always!
