To forget one’s ancestor’s is to be a brook without a source, a tree without root.
Neil Diamond- Coming to America
This is in honor of my Nanny and Poppy who came from County Kerry in Ireland. My Nanna was a cook for Buckingham Palace before she left for New York where she was employed as a cook for a rich family on Park Avenue. There was no end to her amazing talents. My Pop had to work as a longshoreman which was very hard in order to enable their children to get the best education possible.
