My Mother, Grace Perrotta Napol first wife of Jimmy(Nap)Napoli

                MOM

My Mother, Grace Perrotta Napoli
She was 47 years old when she died
of Cancer on Jaunuary 5th 1962
She was a housewife and took care
of her five children including me while
my Father traveled half way around
the world meeting people to promote
what he knew best "Gambling" he went
to Vegas and helped in opening up
Casino's with Meyer Lansky and other's
who were known to be Mob connected
While he did his traveling and became well
known to the general public, My Mother
became the backbone of the Napoli Family
by staying with the children and putting us
through high school and teaching us discipline
from the get go. She was the woman that helped
make Jimmy Nap what he was.

My mother raised me more so than my father.  He was hardly ever home.  If he wasn't in jail he was traveling.  And when he was home and conducting his gambling business in the neighborhood, he would leave the house at 11 a.m. and not come back until 4 a.m. the next morning.  Only on Sundays would he stay home in his bathrobe all day.  He'd read every word in the newspaper and at 6 p.m. order everyone to be cleanly dressed and sitting at the dinner table.
