Now Playing: "As Time Goes By" (lyrics below)

This family album is dedicated to my parents,
Sebastiano Sylvestri Angelo Normandia and Olympia Lucille Simonetti Normandy.
It includes photos and stories about many relatives and friends,
some are gone and some are living.

Some of the special people mentioned  in this album are: my brother Michael Normandy, my late sister Jean Normandy Lomuto; me - Priscilla Ann Normandy Greenwood; my paternal grandparents,  Michele (Michael) Antonio Normandia and Giovannini (Jennie) Tuorto Normandia and their children:  my father Sebastiano Sylvester, George (Biagio), Albert (Humberto), Antonio, Angelina, and Henry (Anniello); my maternal grandparents, Vincenzo Simonetti and Principia DiDonna Simonetti and their children:  Giovanna (Jennie), Salvatore, Barbara, Margaret, my mother Olympia,  and Susan (Asunta).

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss,
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny

Well, it's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

[Here is the actual beginning,
rarely sung, but nice to know
how it was written by Herman Hupfield.]

This day and age we're living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension
Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory

So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension
And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed
