Add a Memory
Welcome to our new website!
A space to share our Nigroness...
our babies, companies, original songs, videos, ping pong scores, products, artworks and awards. Stemming
from our paternal second generation Italian heritage, our family culture
is an expression of devotion, hospitality and an
elbow in the face if you make the basket! At the core of the chaos
when we all come together, is the
bond that keeps us connected.
How to use our website
Our vision is to showcase a plephora of media created by and featuring family members to document our enfolding history and aggregate our collective digital footprint. Visitors are invited to watch a video of our last family vacation with Dad, listen to the Nigro Sisters early recordings, or Lora's latest music, view photo slideshows of Images Past and read excerpts from the Family Journal. Mom's classic recipes are accessible from the homepage by mousing over the fork and knife icon. The online calender (bottom right) gathers birthdays and anniversaries of each month. Click on the top butterfly menu to perouse photos, activities and contact information found on Mike, Lora, Regina, Amy, Nick and Danny's family pages.
A legacy and a promise
This website was inspired by Mom's infatuation for scrapbooking, a "labor of love" commissioned by my father in 2013. It was ready to be unveiled only days before his incident, going live as he lay in ICU. Fortunately, he received a private showing the previous week on my widescreen iMac and was enthralled! To be able to share in that moment puts a smile on my face.
During Dad's last years, we each experienced the gift of relating with him one-on-one. As we walk this planet seeking ways to fill that void, we are entrusted to reflect our parents' central ideal. All of us carry a spark of their light and the promise to hold the family unit together.
