All my life I have been lucky to be raised by strong women. Aunt Alice was one of them. She always looked out for me and the Vargas kids -- Cynthia, Maria, Bill and myself --from the early days in Brooklyn on Kosciuszko Street until she and the family moved to 133 N. Oregon Rd in Babylon, LI. Babylon, with space, trees, a high school with a football field, was a whole different scene from the asphalt jungle of Brooklyn, and for those of us still living in the city, it meant the Van Eyken’s had made it. During my young teenage years, my brother Bill and I would get on our bicycles and take a 2-hour-plus ride to Aunt Alice’s house to hang out in the neighborhood and visit with our cousins Louse, Sandra and Iris. Aunt Alice made us all feel like we belonged because we were family and made sure we ate before our journey back to the city. She would always give us good advice based on her experience in life and had no time for fools. She always loved having a good time, especially on the dance floor no matter what type of music was playing but had a special fondness for some good old salsa.
As I grew older and became a union organizer for the ILGWU, I found out that Aunt Alice was a union member and was part of Local 155. She told me that she had to help a lot of her co-workers who only spoke Spanish translate to their boss what they needed. This union relationship only made my bond with Aunt Alice stronger and I think she thought of me not only as a nephew but as a son. This is a sad time for all of us now that Aunt Alice has passed, but I am enriched forever by the love and wisdom Aunt Alice bestowed on me and all of us. Now she gets to hang out with her crew, Bea, Baby, Philly, Wally, Gamo, Carmen and Chuckie, and also see her grandson Michael. Say hello for us.

Aunt Alice,
I want to say thank you for being the bridge over my troubled waters. You were a bridge in a time when a young girl was trying to find her way. Who knew that bridge would lead to me reconnecting with a family I would only be familiar with in name. The time spent together allowed us to develop a bond we would all later share.
Thank you Titi for the memories and for your love and support!!! I am forever grateful and you will be forever missed.
Love Tuti (Cristina)
