Donna Boitano passed away Wednesday at age 89. She had suffered from Alzheimer's disease. Brian's dad, Lew, had passed on in December, 2012. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/me...n=donna-jean-boitano&pid=169426761&fhid=24141 Prayers of comfort to Brian, his siblings, and their extended families. It is very evident from Brian's cookbook how much he loved his parents. I hope their survivors will continue to feel their legacy now that they are together again in Heaven.
