I really like this story. Meow-Meow and Ompa were here the past few days and I was playing the lovely song "Santa Lucia" on the piano for them -- Lucia is Lulu's formal name and I just love this song. My mom just then remembered her grandmother, Ursula (where Lulu's middle name comes from), adoring that song and playing it for her all the time. Ursula (whom we called BaBaBa) even made my mom, her siblings and cousins memorize and sing the lyrics in Italian. Sounds like something I'd make my Lucia do, huh!!
